The Project

Work with legal service providers and community based organizations statewide to identify legal needs that exist in rural and isolated communities and leverage volunteers to help organizations serve low-income Californians in need.

The Inspiration

Need Addressed By Project
This project addresses the need for free legal assistance to isolated and rural low-income communities.
The Right Person For This Project
Mai is the right person for the project because:
• he went to law school because she believes that access to legal assistance should be available to everyone and not limited to those who can afford it
• Organizing free legal clinics to under served communities in California through the Justice Bus Project at OneJustice gives her the opportunity to put that belief into practice
