“When our laws go unenforced, our democracy cannot function properly.”
“I am excited to bring my experience in litigation, policy and politics to support PRP’s work! I believe that cities and states—as the units of government closest to the needs of their residents—have a unique opportunity to ensure that the laws are enforced to protect our most vulnerable communities, especially now.”
JOIN THE FIGHT. Together, let us build an inclusive future, one that is not determined by one’s zip code and where every child can live up to his or her potentials; and a future where our nation’s leaders and institutions can work hand in hand with our communities to turn this vision into a reality.
We recently received a match challenge of $50,000 to help us close the gap between the values expressed in our laws and the lived reality of our most vulnerable communities. This giving season, I’m inviting you to JOIN THE FIGHT.
Today, the nonpartisan Public Rights Project announced that it is launching its fellowship program in Oakland. The program will place a full-time legal fellow in the City Attorney’s Office to help with lawsuits to safeguard the rights of Oakland’s diverse communities, including communities of color, women, immigrants and low-income residents.
In the end, it’s the cities and states that will pick and win the important fights against the exclusionary policies represented by this administration.
