The Equal Justice Society is thrilled to welcome Angela Garcia, a rising USF Law 3L, and Breanna Madison, a rising Howard Law 2L, as our summer 2022 legal interns.
Angela Garcia recently completed her second year at the University of San Francisco School of Law, where she is co-president of the USF Women’s Law Association, serves on the board of the USF Public Interest Law Foundation student organization, and is on the staff of USF Law Review.
This past spring, Angela externed at the ACLU of Northern California working on the Criminal Justice team.
During the summer of 2021, Angela was a legal intern at the Capital Post-Conviction Project of Louisiana where she worked on the cases of clients accused of capital crimes and had the opportunity to undertake various research tasks and draft legal motions.
Angela graduated with a B.S. in Environmental Economics & Policy, Public Policy, from the University of California, Berkeley. She was a Research Assistant at the Goldman School of Public Policy at the University of California Berkeley where she used econometrics to demonstrate the rise in police brutality against African Americans compared to white Americans over the past fifty years.
Breanna Madison just finished her first year at Howard University School of Law. She graduated from Agnes Scott College in Decatur, Georgia, with a Bachelor of Arts, cum laude, in Political Science with a minor in English Literature. She earned Dean’s List, Merit Scholarship, and President’s Community Engagement Honor Roll distinctions. Breanna also served as a student representative to the university’s Board of Trustees.
At Agnes Scott, Breanna organized a forum on prison abolition and restorative justice featuring Ericka Huggins, a former leader of the Black Panther Party. Organizing this event helped her develop a greater understanding of the carceral systems that enact violence on communities of color.
Breanna was an intern in the San Francisco office of then-U.S. Senator Kamala Harris, where she assisted with constituent relations and casework and research projects. She also interned at the Port of Oakland where one of her projects involved a disparity study analysis on small businesses.
