Program areas at Centro Legal De La Raza

Centro Legal De La Raza's core legal services include full scope representation referrals, and counsel and advice to more than 10,000 individuals each year. Key programs include the tenants' rights program, which promotes safe, stable, and healthy housing by helping fight unlawful evictions, rent increases, and bad conditions; the workers' rights program which promotes lawful, fair, and safe working conditions and employment practices by helping low-wage workers defend against wage theft, discrimination, retaliation, and wrongful termination, and the immigration program which promotes family stability and economic security by representing our most vulnerable community members, including families living in poverty, long residing undocumented immigrants and families, youth victims of violent crimes, asylum seekers, dreamers, those facing deportation.
Centro Legal De La Raza's youth law academy is building a diversity pipeline into higher education and the law by helping low-income youth of color enroll in and graduate from college, as well as explore professional careers. The first phase is a three-year after-school program that provides comprehensive support services to help youth graduate high school and prepare for college. The second phase is a college component, which helps students transition to college with a plan to fund their education and provides ongoing case management to ensure persistence.
