          "The most difficult aspect of working with very low income and homeless clients is that generally they have multiple concurrent legal issues, which makes it more difficult for them to escape poverty." - Kendra Amick ’13, Economic Justice Attorney at Bay Area Legal Aid

          On June 29 and throughout this week, 70+ Bay Area media organizations will be publishing content to highlight the issue of homelessness. We wanted to look into some of the most common legal issues low-income and/or homeless clients face, so we reached out to alumna Kendra Amick ’13, an Economic Justice Attorney at Bay Area Legal Aid. She spoke to us about her work and her time at UC Hastings.
