Use your talent and skills to address the roots and repercussions of human trafficking.
JusticeMatters, a faith-motivated nonprofit, provides trauma-informed legal services throughout North Carolina and promotes just policies and practices impacting our clients and community. Since 2011 we have been at the forefront of efforts to integrate principles of trauma-informed care in the legal profession – safety, trustworthiness, transparency, collaboration, empowerment, and choice. As we combat the horrors of human trafficking, we bear witness to the courage and resilience of survivors, the sacrifice and grit of caregivers, the expertise and dedication of our collaborative partners, the passion and generosity of our supporters, and our mutual calling to seek justice for the flourishing of our neighbors here in North Carolina. In the last 5 years alone we’ve served over 1,700 clients.
Join the JusticeMatters team as we seek the freedom and flourishing of all people.
Who are we…
Our Founder/Executive Director and Board of Directors identify as Christian and believe it is the heart of God to seek justice for the vulnerable, marginalized, and oppressed. We celebrate both the diversity of our team – volunteers, partners, donors, and staff – and our common commitment to seek justice.
We seek justice.
We seek justice for our clients through the law. We address injustice in both the content and application of the law, and in systems and institutions that perpetuate oppression. We believe justice requires both righting wrongs and investing our resources to strengthen the fabric of our community.
We strive for excellence.
We strive for excellence in every facet of our mission and methods. We zealously protect and pursue each client’s interests as they pursue their dreams.
We uphold Trauma-Informed principles.
We believe that the way we provide legal services—not solely the legal results we secure—holds potential to promote restoration. We are characterized by a concern for safety, trustworthiness and transparency, peer support, collaboration and mutuality, empowerment (voice and choice), and humility regarding cultural, historical, and gender issues.
We embrace community.
We affirm the inherent dignity, equality, and worth of all people. We cultivate mutual respect and empathy with our clients, staff, and partners. We hold space for disagreement and difference. We center the margins—amplifying voices, elevating experiences, and affirming our interconnectedness. We are honored to provide legal representation to our clients and together call North Carolina home.
We are anchored in celebration.
We pursue hope and joy. We celebrate the strength and resilience in our clients, staff, and partners, and we celebrate every victory achieved as we seek justice together.
