Updated: Aug 3, 2021
Los Angeles, CA March 1, 2021—Legal services nonprofit, Learning Rights Law Center, has named Randi Sunshine as its next Executive Director. Sunshine will succeed the organization’s founder Janeen Steel. The Los Angeles based legal services nonprofit organization, founded in 2005, fights to achieve education equity for underserved families and provides free and low-cost legal representation, advice, advocacy and training to children, families and communities who, as a consequence of disability or discrimination, have been denied equal access to a public education.
Sunshine comes to Learning Rights Law Center with extensive experience in fundraising, marketing, board development, community outreach, diversity sensitivity, communications and organizational management within the social justice sector. Prior to her new position, Sunshine worked with the Disability Rights Legal Center for over a decade, and has published articles about fundraising for nonprofit organizations.
As the new Executive Director, Sunshine will work closely with staff and Learning Rights Law Center’s board to ensure the organization can continue to fulfill its mission and adapt to serve families through the ongoing Covid-19 outbreak and beyond.
Outgoing Executive Director Janeen Steel will transition into private practice but will continue to be involved by chairing the organization’s Advisory Council.
“My work will build on the founder’s enormous legacy”, said Randi Sunshine. “We will expand Steel’s passion and commitment to vulnerable children in our new phase and in the new world we live in. I appreciate the board’s confidence in me and am honored to lead this extraordinary organization.”
“On behalf of the entire board we are thrilled that Randi Sunshine will be joining us and are confident her expertise will be transformative for the next phase of Learning Rights Law Center,” announced Erika White, Executive Board Chair.
