The Center on Reproductive Rights & Justice is thrilled to welcome Rachel Johnson-Farias back to Berkeley Law. Rachel has dedicated her legal career to making the law more accessible to low-income people and communities of color. She graduated with honors from Occidental College and obtained a B.A. in Critical Theory and Social Justice. During her time at Berkeley Law, Rachel received the Francine Diaz Memorial Award for her commitment to social justice through legal services and advocacy. After law school Rachel was awarded an Equal Justice Works Fellowship to implement the Starting Over Strong (SOS) juvenile reentry program at the 东湾社区法律中心. Rachel’s prior experience in working with low-income clients and dedication to empowering youth helped her secure an Echoing Green 研究员hip and J.M. Kaplan Fund Prize to create and launch Esq. Apprentice; a non-profit providing a debt-free path to law licensing for low-income people of color.
