As founder and chair of For People of Color (FPOC), MoFo alumnus Anthony Solana, Jr. is making strides in diversifying the legal profession.
In a recent interview in our MoForever alumni magazine, Anthony discusses his work with FPOC and his commitment to public-service endeavors.
Anthony started FPOC, an organization that provides free admissions counseling to prospective law students, as a student at UCLA School of Law. Since the program’s inception, it has expanded to include application counseling services and active participation in diversity conferences.
That work is having a real impact.
“We receive a lot of wonderful success stories, which is extremely rewarding. I just heard from a student who was accepted into Berkeley Law School with a substantial scholarship and very big dreams for a law career. As the first male in his family to go to college, he felt he didn’t have many professional role models to turn to and credits FPOC with fulfilling that role,” notes Anthony.
