Description

Founded in East Palo Alto, Community Legal Services in East Palo Alto (CLSEPA) is a nonprofit offering legal services that improve the lives of low-income families throughout the region. We specialize in immigration, housing, workers’ rights, records clearance and consumer protection. Our team of attorneys, paralegals and social worker work side-by-side with low-income communities and partner with community-based organizations, churches, and sc hools to bring about lasting change. We train and support community members to navigate the legal system and exercise their rights. We use multiple, innovative strategies, including community education, individual legal advice and representation, legal assistance to community groups, policy advocacy, and impact litigation. Our impact is magnified by the support we receive from impassioned volunteers at law firms, corporations, and law schools throughout the region, who collectively donate millions of dollars in legal services annually to our clients. In 2016, our expert legal staff, along with hundreds of volunteers, helped over 6,000 individuals.
