Saul began his relationship with UMMA when it was just a dream. He had the privilege of attending UCLA with several of the founders, where they worked together on the Muslim and Chicano student newsmagazines, respectively. A graduate of UCLA’s law school, Saul was an organizer for Community Coalition at UMMA’s inception and supported UMMA’s integration into the social justice landscape in South LA. In 2012, after teaching law at UCLA and heading the Critical Race Studies program there, he began a consulting practice to enhance the capacity of organizations and coalitions working for social justice. Upon leaving UCLA, he was denied health insurance due to a pre-existing condition. The UMMA Clinic welcomed him as a patient and he became a consumer member of the Board in 2014. He is the standing vice chair.
