Our Mission

The Satyagraha Alliance is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) organization that supports philanthropic programs for local underserved communities.

Our mission: to alleviate many of the troubling issues that stem from social injustice, homelessness, and food insecurity through collaboration, charitable giving, and volunteer work.

How We Started

Given their work with some of the most vulnerable populations in the community, members of Matern Law Group had long expressed a strong desire to offer their support in ways that would reach beyond the courtroom.

Matthew Matern established the Satyagraha Alliance in 2017 to serve as the firm’s the social responsibility arm, naming it after Gandhi’s policy of social change through nonviolent resistance – or Satyagraha, a term that literally means “holding to the truth.”

As its inaugural event, The Satyagraha Alliance hosted a fundraiser and community discussion forum to raise awareness of issues surrounding the homelessness crisis in Los Angeles. The event featured Pulitzer Prize Winning Journalist Rick Wartzman, along with the Executive Director of the San Fernando Valley Rescue Mission, Wade Trimmer.
