We are dedicated to implementing laws that set an “Equal Value for Every Human Life in the Courts” based on the constitutional principle that "All men are created equal".
The current legal system does not adequately protect the elderly or anyone who is not working or is not wealthy because the courts assign a low economic value to their lives. Attorneys are reluctant to take on Elder abuse cases because even if they win they might get little compensation. This is especially true if the person incurred Medicare or Medicaid costs because they have to be paid back before any award is distributed to the plaintiff or their attorney. The Justice for Carmen Foundation was established to redress this injustice. With your help we can make sure that our loved ones will not suffer like so many other people have.
- We seek to further the constitutional principle that “ALL MEN ARE CREATED EQUAL “.
- We are mounting a NATIONAL campaign to change the laws in every state.
- We are focused on educating the media and public, and thereby influence the legislative process.
- We seek the support of grants and foundations as well as individuals.
Our efforts were inspired by the suffering and death of Carmen Chavez, hence the name of our foundation is Justice for Carmen LA Chavez. We welcome your questions and appreciate your support.
