Sierra Holley is in her final year at Loyola Law School in Los Angeles, CA. Her passion for special education law comes from witnessing her young son receive disparate treatment compared to his white counterparts at school. Sierra wants the public to understand that children with special needs must be treated with respect and dignity and afforded rights and access to education alongside typically developing children. She currently works for Loyola’s Youth Education Justice Clinic, serves as Community Affairs Chair of Loyola’s Black Law Student Association, and is organizing a “declaration drive” with Root and Rebound to help formerly incarcerated individuals draft declarations for record expungement. After passing the California Bar, Sierra plans to continue to provide holistic legal support to low wage working families.
