Description

Dori Rose Inda is the founder and executive director of the Watsonville Law Center (WLC). She earned a bachelor’s degree in social science at the University of California, Berkeley, in 1988 and earned a J.D. at Santa Clara University School of Law in 2000. While a law student, Inda assisted on a case in which many of the victims were from the Watsonville area. These clients were unable to obtain legal representation locally and this brought to light the critical gap in legal services in the Watsonville area. She then dedicated herself to establishing WLC in Watsonville. After graduation, Inda worked as a staff attorney for California Rural Legal Assistance and in 2002 founded the Watsonville Law Center. Since that time, with WLC’s team of staff, board, and partners, she developed the five projects that make up WLC’s services to the community: Economic Justice Partnership, Agricultural Workers’ Access to Health Project, Barriers to Employment, Consumer Protection, and Language Access to the Court.
