Shakyra Diaz, Case Western Reserve University alumnus, shares her experiences working with the American Civil Liberties Union of Ohio and some of the types of cases she works on. Diaz also discusses what she must do in order to properly complete her job, such as embedding herself in her community, listening to those who are not used to speaking up and bridging the gap between the community and those who create laws.

It is always good for the society when law makers interact with community before making the laws so that the ground situation will be reflected in the law, otherwise the law will be useless for the common public.
