About Us

Our Mission: To protect taxpayers from government waste, negligence, misappropriation and other improper actions.

The Government Justice Center is an independent, not-for-profit 501(c)(3) legal center that provides pro-bono representation and legal services to protect the rights of New Yorkers in the face of improper action by state or local governments. We rely upon the generosity of our donors and do not receive any government funding.

We believe our government functions best when held to the highest standards of transparency and accountability, and that government should follow the same laws to which private citizens are held. We work to make sure New Yorkers get the transparency and due process they deserve and are entitled to.
