On any given night in Los Angeles County, more than 69,000 people experience homelessness. Black and brown Angelenos are four times more likely to end up on the streets and more than 75% of those currently living on the streets of Los Angeles are people of color. SABA-SC recognizes that the best way to end homelessness is to prevent it in the first place, and for those experiencing housing instability, legal services are vital to getting them on the path to a safe and stable life.
For the second year in a row, SABA-SC is sponsoring a legal fellowship aimed at addressing the County’s homelessness crisis and its impact on communities of color. The fellow will work full-time with Inner City Law Center for 10 weeks between May and August 2023, and focus on issues impacting individuals and families of color experiencing or at risk of homelessness. The fellow will assist with a variety of cases, including evictions, benefits, immigration, and/or citation clearing, and will:
- Assist with intake,
- Conduct legal research,
- Review and analyze client files,
- Draft pleadings, discovery, and motions,
- Help prepare for mediations and trials, and/or
- Observe courtroom proceedings.
