Centro Legal de la Raza

Centro Legal de la Raza was founded in 1969 to provide free or low-cost bilingual legal aid, as well as community education and advocacy for immigrant, low-income, and Latino communities. Centro Legal was founded by Latino law students from Boalt Hall at UC Berkeley. Centro Legal also hosts a Youth Law Academy, an after-school program which supports Oakland teens in college applications, SAT preparation, and mentoring future law students. Not only does it offer on-site resources, Centro Legal recently released the first database of Resources for Unaccompanied Children and Refugee Families in the East Bay.
