Advocating for the increased representation of Latinas, Latinos, and Latinxs in the judiciary is central to the EBLRLA’s mission.
The EBLRLA is excited by the increased opportunities for experienced Latinx lawyers to join the federal and state bench and continues its advocacy on judicial appointments, in collaboration with other Bay Area La Raza Lawyers chapters and our statewide coalition.
This 2021, we welcomed two EBLRLA-endorsed judicial candidates to the bench: Judge Elena Condes and Judge David Pereda. Additionally, we endorsed now Justice Victor Rodríguez—formerly an Alameda County Superior Court judge—to became Associate Justice of the Court of Appeal for the First Appellate District.
