FELLOWSHIP SPONSORSHIP OPPORTUNITIES FOR
2015-2017 FELLOWSHIP CYCLE

LCCR is interested in sponsoring applicants for fellowships, including the Skadden and Equal Justice Works Fellowship Programs, for the 2015-2017 cycle. LCCR is particularly interested in potentially sponsoring projects in the following areas:

  • Education: as charter schools expand, we see more instances where minority and low-income students are disproportionately excluded from charter schools through restrictive admissions policies and other means. We are interested in sponsoring a project that would combat this trend through direct services, policy advocacy, and litigation.
  • Re-Entry Advocacy: our Second Chance program assists clients who are working to overcome barriers to employment and housing due to past arrest and conviction records. We are interested in projects that will expand the scope of our re-entry work to juveniles; expand our housing advocacy in this arena; or address issues of court-related debt and drivers’ license suspension.
  • Advocacy for Immigrant Youth: through our immigration/asylum program, we increasingly see minors in need of legal assistance. We are interested in sponsoring a project that would provide asylum and Special Immigrant Juveniles Status (SIJS) advocacy and other services for minors, including increasing pro bono representation and developing impact advocacy.
  • Economic Justice and Community Empowerment: we currently provide transactional legal assistance to low-income micro-entrepreneurs. We are interested in projects that would develop legal and policy advocacy strategies to address the displacement of diverse communities and small businesses (i.e., “mom and pop shops”) throughout the San Francisco Bay Area, with a focus on people of color, immigrants, or women.
  • Other projects in the areas of racial justice, economic empowerment and/or immigrant justice.
