THE WAY TO JUSTICE
Empowering the community through advocacy and access
The Way to Justice is a community law firm led and created by women of color. Through direct representation, impact litigation, policy reform, and advocacy work, we address the barriers facing individuals who have been negatively impacted by our justice system.
The Way to Justice is a tax-exempt non-profit organization located in Eastern Washington. (Tax ID# 84-5129426)
THE WAY TO JUSTICE
Our clients and their loved ones have been unjustly impacted by our legal system. Too often, access to justice is denied due to poverty and structural bias. In our work, we focus on addressing systemic racism, removing barriers, empowering the most vulnerable, and amplifying the voices of the impacted community to create a more just system. We understand that change will not happen overnight, so another aspect of our work is focused on navigating systems as they are, to find THE WAY TO JUSTICE.
We Do Justice
The Way to Justice was founded in 2020 by Virla Spencer and Camerina Zorrozua, BIPOC women with more than three decades of experience working in the justice system.
The Way to Justice is a 501 (c)(3) located in Spokane, Washington.

“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.”
