Monica Valencia wins San Francisco La Raza Lawyers Association Fellowship
April 7, 2016
The San Francisco La Raza Lawyers Association and the Bay Area Latino Lawyers Fund awards public interest fellowships to law students who spend summers providing direct services to underrepresented communities.
The SFLRLA Public Interest Law Fellowship is designed to provide financial assistance to law students with significant financial need who are working with Bay Area community-based legal service providers to enhance the delivery of legal services to the Latino community.
This summer, Monica will be working at Justice Now in Oakland, California and focusing on advocating for persons in prison who are predominantly Latinos who do not speak English, by providing legal and social resources needed to navigate the prison system and the judicial system.
