We are thrilled to announce that the keynote speaker at the 2019 Opening Doors to Justice event will be Julie Chávez Rodríguez!
Julie Chávez Rodríguez is the former State Director and Senior Adviser for Senator Kamala Harris, where she oversaw operations and public engagement across five district offices as the Senator’s principal representative among constituents and elected leaders throughout California. Before returning to California, Julie was Special Assistant to President Obama and Senior Deputy Director of Public Engagement at the White House, directing LGBT, AAPI, Latino, Veteran, Youth, and Labor outreach and supporting efforts to reform our nation’s immigration system, improve services for veterans, and increase access to affordable, quality health care. She is also the granddaughter of Cesar Chávez, and his work continues to inspire her own.
OneJustice had the great honor of working closely with Julie Chávez Rodríguez and her team in the days and weeks of the San Francisco and Los Angeles airport legal clinics in the wake of the Muslim ban, and that work to expand the reach and scope of legal aid and immigration legal services has continued over the last two years. Don’t miss this remarkable opportunity to hear Ms. Rodríguez’s reflections on the the importance of civil legal aid, particularly at this period in our country’s development, as we celebrate OneJustice’s impact over the last 40 years and a bold vision for the future. Tickets are available online here, and we look forward to seeing you on June 13th.
