The gift of justice for immigrant youth
December 15, 2012

There are over 300,000 children and youth in California eligible to apply for a new immigration relief program.
And not enough attorneys to help them – particularly in rural and isolated areas of the state.
You can change this! The Justice Bus Project is building coalitions of nonprofit legal organizations and law firms, law schools, and corporations to respond.
In the short video below, Laura Lopez, a youth in Napa County who graduated with honors from UC Santa Cruz, tells her story and explains why the recent Justice Bus trip with Legal Aid of Napa Valley was so important.
You can make all the difference for someone like Laura – give the gift of justice to a youth this holiday season – donate now to the Children’s Legal Aid Fund or the Justice Bus Project. Donate before the end of the year, and your gift will be matched dollar-for-dollar by a group of generous donors.

Many thanks to Fenwick & West attorneys for volunteering to bring justice to the youth in Napa Valley!
Many thanks also to the California Bar Foundation and the van Loben Sels/RembeRock Foundation for their generous support for the Justice Bus Project! We are thrilled to report that both Foundations just announced that they will provide generous grants in 2013 for even more Justice Bus Trips to bring life-changing legal help to immigrant youth living in rural and isolated areas of the state. Thank you!
Justice: the perfect gift. Donate now to bring justice to over 270,000 Californians like Maya in 2013.
