WDA’s amicus advocacy priorities areas includes:

  • Right to counsel, Standards of Indigent Defense, and public defense.
  • Incarceration and other restrictions on liberty.
  • Disproportionate treatment of individuals in the system. This includes, but is not limited to, racial inequity, socio-economic inequity, and disparate treatment against non-citizens.


We thank our legal partners, community groups, and impacted individuals for advancing these priorities areas with WDA.
