Civil Rights Outreach Project (CROP)
The Berkeley Civil Rights Outreach Project (CROP) works in collaboration with the Asian Law Caucus (ALC) in San Francisco, and provides outreach to monolingual and economically disadvantaged individuals and communities impacted by post-9/11 profiling and discrimination. CROP aims to assist these communities with their legal needs, educate them about their legal rights, and empower them to advocate on their own behalf. In conjunction with the Asian Law Caucus and other partnering attorneys, CROP participants travel to mosques and community centers in the Berkeley-Oakland area to provide clients with free, limited legal information. Students gain substantive knowledge of national security and civil rights issues, as well as training on issue spotting and client interaction. For more information contact BerkeleyCROP@gmail.com.
