EJS is delighted to announce that, as of May 1, Sara Jackson, our 2007-8 Motley Fellow and National Network Coordinator, has been promoted to the position of Staff Attorney.
Sara has been doing extraordinary work as our liaison to the Impact209 Coalition in California and as our contact to the national and state coalitions combating anti-affirmative action initiatives. The Staff Attorney position is a new position for EJS made possible by the recent grant from the Kellogg Foundation.
Our 2008-9, Motley Fellow, Claudia Pena, engaged in developing legal research regarding the intent doctrine and alliance building efforts, assisting the development of the rapid response network (re ICE raids). Both Sara and Claudia are graduates of UCLA Law School and its Critical Race Studies Department.
We have also had two dedicated interns this past semester: Danfeng Soto-Vigil Koon, a 3L from Boalt (Berkeley Law) where she is also a participant in the EJS Scholar Advocate program with the Thelton Henderson Center for Social Justice and Audrey Daniel, a graduating 3L from Golden Gate University School of Law.
