José Padilla Fellowship Fund

Make a lasting impact on rural California and the next generation of social justice lawyers—donate to the José Padilla Fellowship Fund!

In recognition of José Padilla’s 38 years of service as CRLA Executive Director, we established the José Padilla Fellowship Fund, a special fund to support interns and fellows launching careers in social justice law.

Supporting the development of new leaders in the field of legal aid has always been a passion and priority for José Padilla. Your donation honors José's legacy and ensures CRLA’s justice work will live on for generations.

Update: Starting December 2, 2022, longtime CRLA supporters Arturo and Rosa González will match all new gifts to the Fellowship Fund up to $50,000. Your gift today can help us make the most of this generous match, thank you!
