Fall 2020 Education Defense & Justice for Youth Clinical Student
Christine set the foundation for so much of our clinical work, more than she even knows. Christine worked on several memos for her individual clients and for our community-based partners. Because of her diligence in pursuing all of the options available to her clients, she was able to secure significant victories, including private tutoring and access to critical technological devices for her clients. In addition, her research on behalf of our community-based partners continues to shape our long-term strategy. Her research proved instrumental as our coalition discussed legislative bills to pursue in the California legislature, but also in terms of our 10 year-plan to dismantle the school-to-prison pipeline. Christine’s passion for racial justice was evident in her work and I am confident that her contributions to our clinic will have a lasting impact.
