On Wednesday, November 5th, eligible Cañada students will receive one-on-one assistance with DACA renewal applications at a free legal clinic organized by the Cañada Student DREAMers Club and Beating the Odds Peer Mentorship (BTO) Program, in collaboration with Community Legal Services in East Palo Alto and Goodwin Proctor, LLP. Goodwin Proctor is hosting the clinic at their Menlo Park offices and will also provide free shuttle transportation from campus. This unique opportunity for students reflects both the hard work being done by student leaders here on campus, and also the benefits that come from broader campus and community partnerships.
