CRLAF Celebrates 35 Years

Posted By Kevin R. Johnson, Oct 5, 2016

California Rural Legal Assistance Foundation (CRLAF) celebrated its 35th anniversary of fighting for farm worker justice.  And it was like a King Hall reunion!

Executive Director Amagda Pérez '91 served as the emcee. Mayor-elect of Sacramento Darrell Steinberg '84 was honored as Legislator of the Year and gave an inspiring speech. Professor Emeritus Cruz Reynoso talked about how CRLA Foundation came to be.

I attended the dinner with a group of great law students.  We also had many alums in attendance, including Julie Montgomery '96, now general counsel of the Agricultural Labor Relations Board, and immigration attorney Anel Carrasco '11.
