2/8/23 - The WWL Yakima Chapter founded the Women of Color Legal Education Fund in response to the concerning lack of racial and ethnic diversity in the legal profession locally as well as at the state and national level. The WWL Yakima Women of Color Legal Education Fund aims to support women of color from the Yakima Valley who seek to join the legal profession by facilitating professional development, encouraging academic achievement, and providing direct financial support.

The Fund is not currently accepting new applications. The Fund will begin accepting it’s second round of applications in April of 2023. Please check back here for more information about applying in the future.
