Berkshire Center for Justice

BJC’s mission is to:

  • provide legal support for persons who otherwise would not have access to representation
  • educate and empower clients to self-advocate within the system where appropriate
  • promote justice and the public interest by building strong community relationships
  • engage in educational and civic programs that build community and empower the disenfranchised and under-represented


Berkshire Magazine celebrates the most dedicated, most creative, and most influential members of the community.  We are thrilled to announce that Eve Schatz’s tremendous work with the Berkshire Center for Justice is being recognized and honored!
