Help Five Top Students in Need

Five talented Latinx CSU students had an unfortunate experience with a law school prep course when miscommunication around cost had them owing an unexpected $4,000. They are now struggling to pay off the unanticipated debt while also paying for school. These are all hard-working young women and strong student leaders who need a community of support right now. Please join me in helping them pay off this debt so they can stay on track to graduation!

Here are the students you will be helping:

Anarely will be graduating in May with a degree in Political Science and Ethnic Studies and a minor in Legal Studies. Anarely grew up in Commerce City, Colorado, and has had first hand experience navigating the broken immigration system. "I remember the fear. People were just scared to live their lives, go to the doctor, report crimes. Immigrants just aren't aware of their rights," says Marquez. Anarely hopes to pursue a career as an immigration lawyer and help arm communities with knowledge of their rights.
