OC Legal Clinic 1 Year Celebration

The Orange County Legal Clinic was established in October 2018 after a gap in legal clinics being offered. Members from Chicanxs Unidxs and Resilience Orange County had been working with youth as young as 12 years old who were facing felonies, youth who were being denied special education services, youth who were being suspended and expelled from schools, young adults trying to find a second chance at life, adults trying to get off gang injuctions and gang databases. The need to create a space where community members could be linked or could get help was obvious and they reached out to Youth Justice Coalition from Los Angeles to train them.

LGBT Center Roundtable to be held on October 16th

Over the past three months, the LGBT Center OC Board of Directors and executive staff have engaged in a dialogue with Center staff, community members and stakeholders regarding our decision to allow uniformed police officers to march with us in the OC Pride parade. The dialogue has raised our awareness of the importance of continuing to bring more voices to the table and more diversity in thought and life experience to the decision making process.
