YAKIMA HERALD REPUBLIC — Growing up, Alicia Ibarra was taught to be wary of police or other people in authority. “Being a minority, I felt as I had that feeling of feeling helpless when we wanted to ask for help,” said Ibarra, a Sunnyside resident. “I want to help people who have that helpless feeling.” Ibarra, who is working on her master’s in law degree through Regent University in Virginia, is getting help toward her goal of becoming an attorney. She and 18 other women are the first recipients of grants from the Women of Color Legal Education Fund.
