Talissa and Jesus have been placed with One Justice, a non-profit that seeks to bring life-changing legal help to Californians in need. As they participate in the Rural Justice Initiative, Jesus and Talissa are able to shadow and work alongside the Pro Bono Justice team as it works with clients in rural and isolated areas of California through its mobile legal clinics. As the program continues, they will have the chance to attend fifteen Rural Justice clinics that will focus on housing, DACA, and other immigration assistance. They also assist with the Justice Bus program, providing DACA clinics throughout Northern California. Through this organization, Talissa and Jesus will serve a large population of those in need, develop a greater understanding of legal issues affecting low-income Californians and the legal remedies for those issues, gain knowledge of California’s legal system, and help with outreach to serve the greatest number of people possible.
