Saúl Sarabia, Director
Critical Race Studies Program, UCLA School of Law 

Saúl Sarabia focuses on community-based social justice advocacy, strategizing with community residents to include their voice in law-making and public policy reform.  Since graduating from UCLA Law in 1996, his efforts have ranged from documenting human rights violations in Central American countries to community organizing with poor people on welfare and the foster care system in South Los Angeles.  He teaches Critical Race Theory and Latinos/as and the Law in the CRS Curriculum, while coordinating the CRS Program’s public symposia, panel presentations and collaborations with civil rights and community organizations.  He currently serves as an advisor to the Los Angeles chapter of “All of Us or None,” which organizes formerly incarcerated people to change laws and policies that discriminate against them.  He serves on the Board of Directors of three tax-exempt organizations dedicated to ending discrimination against socially disfavored groups and promoting social justice.  They are, the Binational Center for the Development of Oaxacan Indigenous Communities, an organization of Mexican Indians committed to social justice; the Honor Fund, an organization seeking to end discrimination against LGBT Latinas/os; and the California Community Foundation’s Marco Firebaugh Dream Fund, a scholarship fund for law students who are categorically ineligible for financial aid, such as undocumented immigrants.
