Campaign for Justice Works to Improve Access to Legal Aid

Kamran A. Khawar leads as President of VinoVue, Inc., a growth-stage company based in California that focuses on developing software products for use by consumers and businesses. A graduate of the University of San Diego School of Law and member of the State Bar of California, Kamran Khawar previously practiced as an attorney with several Southern California firms.

With federal funding for legal services having been slashed by more than 70 percent over the past five years and the need for free legal support increasing as the state population rises, the State Bar of California has partnered with other legal aid societies to establish the Campaign for Justice. Since its inception in 2010, the Campaign for Justice has grown to support a network of more than 97 nonprofits, which administer services to a variety of populations in need, including senior citizens, people with disabilities, and individuals residing in economically disadvantaged areas.

Along with supporting these vital programs, the Campaign for Justice works to educate the public about the importance of legal aid and its dramatic effect on the lives of those who need it. Through this education, the organization hopes to increase funding and volunteerism, which it relies on to operate its partners’ programs.
