Co-creating Love and Justice with our Community

“Power without love is reckless and abusive, and love without power is sentimental and anemic.
Power at its best is love implementing the demands of justice, and
justice at its best is power correcting everything that stands against love.

– Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Greater Waco Legal Services provides affordable legal services, holistic advocacy, and community-driven problem-solving so that all members of our community have equal access to justice.

As we work together with our community, GWLS will be a connecting force for growing Love and Justice in our world so that people of every race, religion, age, gender, sexual orientation, and national origin are treated equally under the law and empowered to live a life full of freedom, joy, peace, and love.
