Spring 2020 Education Defense & Justice for Youth Clinical Student
Somers was such a compassionate defender of her clients. She organically established meaningful relationships with young people and their families, and worked diligently to tell their stories. Somers also worked alongside community partners to oppose Alameda County’s plans to spend $75 million to rebuild its juvenile probation camp. Somers always showed up, both for her clients and for the community. I can’t wait to see where her passion, empathy, and drive take her next.
