Legal Services and Mentorship

I'm an alum from 2005, who went on to law school at USC, and I now have my own legal practice, focusing on criminal defense, DUI defense, and post-conviction relief. I'd be happy to meet up with current and former students to discuss the law school experience, running my own business, and the practice of criminal law.  My office is in San Pedro, and I'm in court all over L.A. and the O.C. regularly, so we can find a time to meet up near campus, or out and about. I was a transfer student, an O-Team member, and helped revise Oxy's student government constitution, while I was there.  I'm now looking for ways to continue to give back to the Oxy community. Of course, if anyone you know gets arrested, please keep me in mind for that as well. 323-529-3660

Our mission includes advancing the health and well-being of LGBTQ Californians through advocacy, outreach, education, and direct healthcare and social service programs. Our new mission places emphasis on addressing the significant disparities LGBTQ people face compared to the broad community, and interns will be involved in much work related to this. These disparities include disproportionately high rates of poverty, suicide, homeless, isolation, HIV/AIDS, substance abuse, violence, police profiling, and low rates of health insurance. Through electoral, advocacy, education and mobilization programs, we strive to create a broad and diverse alliance of LGBTQ people, educators, government officials, communities of color and faith, labor, business, and social justice communities to achieve our goals. Interns will gain experience in one/some/all of the following departments depending on their interests: political, communications, field, legislative advocacy, programs, and development. QUALIFICATIONS: -Demonstrate a strong passion for LGBT equality and civil rights. -Strong writing and research ability. -Ability to be a team player and work in a highly collaborative environment. -Ability to work effectively with people of diverse ethnicities, race, age, gender identity, and sexual orientation. -Prior experience working in the LGBT community is a plus. ESSENTIAL RESPONSIBILITIES: -Help build visible support for LGBT equality. -Engage our members to ensure our pieces of legislation are enacted into law. -Participate in organizing political outreach actions for EQCA's PAC-endorsed candidates for federal, state, and local offices. -Conduct research on various existing or potential pieces of legislation related to the LGBT community. -Coordinate public education activities around topics like the health care, immigration reform, improved data collection, school safety, violence against the transgender community, etc. Internships are provided on a Quarterly and Semester basis depending on the interns' academic calendar. Interns should be able to intern between 8-20 hours a week. Equality California is an equal opportunity employer. LGBT, women, and people of color are strongly encouraged to apply.
