Sliding scale legal support
Law for all the rest.
The law leaves most of our community out.
W/REST is a new approach. W/REST combines a community cooperative with a collective law firm: the Rest Cooperative and the Wrest Collective. The Rest Cooperative brings minoritized and other left-out groups together with community wealth. The Wrest Collective gathers talented, movement-oriented lawyers to support the cooperative and broader community with legal representation, training, counsel, and other support. In collaboration together, we can reimagine how clients, community, and lawyers make change and create justice.
