Innovation & Progress

ABLE has a 50-year history of legal work at the cutting edge of public interest law theory and practice. Community lawyering makes strong legal work transformational – we engage with communities to identify and address barriers and what is needed to build power and create opportunity. This collaborative method inspires truly innovative legal theories and sustainable, community building legal models. These legal models contribute to equitable community development and increase access to education, housing, healthcare – all things that every individual and family needs. Through this work, we support stronger, more stable, self-directed, and resilient communities.
