José and CRLA Honored

As you may recall, two very prestigious organizations, the California Latino Legislative Caucus and the Clinical Legal Education Association (CLEA) honored José Padilla and CRLA.

The California Latino Legislative Caucus honored Jose Padilla and CRLA with the Latino Spirit Award.

José dedicated the award to his parents, Joe and Delia Padilla, who taught him the importance of public service and to always strive to improve the community. He thanked all the staff, volunteers, and partners of CRLA who have fought with him over the years for justice, fairness and legal access for all Californians.

The Clinical Legal Education Association (CLEA) awarded CRLA with the Per Diem Project Award at the Association of American Law School’s 38th Conference on Clinical Legal Education. Members of CLEA donated thousands of dollars to CRLA! We thank them for their generosity! This type of support will allow us to continue to provide legal interns with the opportunity to gain practical legal experience and a place to help others.
