Contrary to popular belief, the bellwether of the decline of human decency is not violence on television or coarser discourse, it is the abject failure of so many individuals to stand up to, to dissent from and to try to rectify man's inhumanity to his fellow man.

Over the course of the past two decades, Wayne Bennett has taken on selected projects to try, in some small ways, to slow the decline, including:

  • Representation of prisoner abuse victim at the Massachusetts maximum security prison (MCI Cedar Junction)
  • Representation of victim of government over-reaching in connection with exports to under-developed countries
  • Analysis of civil rights track record of Supreme Court candidate for the Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights Under Law (
  • Legal advice to the Computer Clubhouse, a creative and safe after-school learning environment where young people from under-served communities work with mentors to explore their own ideas, develop skills, and build confidence in themselves through the use of technology (
  • Mentoring inner city youth for Citizen Schools (

Bennett Law currently provides legal advice to several non-profit organizations, including:

  • Grameen Foundation USA: established with the goal of reducing global poverty by implementing sustainable, innovative and effective microfinance initiatives in the world's poorest communities (
  • Fire Department Safety Officers Association: established to promote safety standards and practices in the fire, rescue and emergency services community (
