A first-year law student at UC Hastings, Ryan Khojasteh ’16 has been unanimously appointed by the San Francisco Board of Supervisors to the Immigrants Rights Commission. The commission advises the mayor and board on issues and policies related to immigrants who live or work in San Francisco. He thanks Professor Montfort and Professor Pellettieri for preparing him to achieve this goal. Khojasteh writes: “The values and lessons I have learned at Santa Clara created a sense of urgency within me to do whatever I could to combat the divisive and discriminatory rhetoric so often used throughout this tumultuous election cycle … What I would like for the Santa Clara community to take away from this is that if I can do it, anyone can.”
