An activist who fights for Lemon Grovers’ financial security and housing stability. Especially for our Latino, Black and elderly communities.

A lawyer with skills to get the job done.

An educator who values our kids and seeks to protect the environment for generations to come.

A Lemon Grove mom of action.

Meet Alysson Snow

Alysson’s heart is in 🍋 Lemon Grove. She and her husband have raised their five children here, and “Grandma” lives next door. As a mom, she knows it takes a village to raise our kids. Alysson volunteers with Lemon Grove’s scouting programs, with the LG Little League, and has been our soccer teams’ “mom.” In the pandemic, Alysson started helping at the Lemon Grove food distribution. She is Community Service Chair for the Lemon Grove Latino Diversified Lions Club. Alysson is a Lemon Grove community servant through and through.

As a consumer justice and housing rights lawyer, Alysson has taken down predatory lenders and pushed for policies and laws to protect and promote housing stability for low-income families, seniors, and communities of color. Alysson is fluent in Spanish and advocates for our Latino community.

Alysson’s hard work earned her the “Consumer Advocate of the Year” award from the Consumer Attorneys of San Diego. For her efforts during the pandemic to ensure access to justice for all, she received recognition from the World Justice Project.

Alysson has the skills and the passion to work hard for Lemon Grove.


Housing. Keep the housed housed. Rehab current housing and increase affordable housing. Increase very low-income housing solutions.

Financial Stability, Racial Justice and Equity. Increase financial opportunities for the City and its citizens. Gatekeep against predatory lenders and financial fraudsters–especially those who target communities of color and the elderly.

Sidewalks and Safety. Filling potholes. Building sidewalks. Promoting public safety.

Alysson’s Proven Track Record

During the 2008 mortgage crisis, I left my big law firm job to help people losing their homes. I joined a non-profit legal organization that shared my values for fighting for access to justice and helping financially struggling families. For more than a decade, I led the Consumer Protection Division at the Legal Aid Society of San Diego.

As a consumer rights attorney, I fought scammers and predatory lending schemes that target the elderly. I defended against student loans, medical debt and identity theft. My work led Oportun, a payday lender that targets the Latino community, to dismiss 500 cases for abusive debt collection practices.

I designed, launched, and supervised San Diego’s Bankruptcy Self-Help Center and Clinic. I created a debt defense clinic that has served as a national model for helping people fight against unfair debt collection.

I now run the Housing Rights Project at the University of San Diego that helps the housed stay housed and helps the homeless connect to resources and get back on their feet.

So much more needs to be done.

Watch Me In The News!

The sewer line ruptured, caving in the ceiling above her bed. The excrement and other gross stuff poured out of the ceiling, traveled through the house and out the door. The landlord took the insurance money, pocketed it, and simply put some drywall up over the hole and some paint. The insulation, walls, and ceiling wept excrement during the hot summer months.

Alysson stepped up to fight for her!
