Bijan Saman Samandary was born and raised in Los Angeles, California. The son of Iranian Immigrants, Sam understood both the challenges families face seeking a better life in this country, and the vibrancy and dignity those families posses in the face of strife. Sam attended the UC Davis School of Law, where, through his work at the Immigration Law Clinic, he would go on to fight against the prolonged detention and deportation of immigrants. He returned home with newfound skills, purpose and passion to serve local communities pursuing new chapters. We celebrate his life, his work, and his legacy.
