As a volunteer ESL teacher, I encounter many individuals and families who need help. LALDEF acts as a liaison between legal experts and immigrant families. The organization organized and implemented a program for members of the community, both documented and undocumented, to acquire a community ID card which is helpful at doctors' offices and in case of emergencies. Throughout the year, LALDEF sends an e-letter to keep the community informed concerning upcoming legislation, educational opportunities and health care assistance. LALDEF is a wonderful non-profit whose members work tirelessly to promote social justice.

The Latin American Legal Defense and Education Fund provides information and advocacy for families dealing with the problems of our broken immigration system and also provides advice to other social justice groups who are advocating for immigrants. LALDEF sponsors educational opportunities for the public such as movies, panels and round-table discussions. LALDEF also provides and promotes the use of community ID cards which have been endorsed by the Mercer County Sheriff and Prosecutor's Office. The cards have given helpful information for first responders, health care providers and public libraries and have helped immigrants become an integral part of their communities.

Maria Juega, one of the Founders of LALDEF has participated in panel discussions sponsored by our social justice committee. She is guiding members of our community as we endeavor to bring the Mercer County Area ID card to our community.

I run a parent support group for Latino parents in our community. LALDEF, and specifically Maria Juega, has come to speak at our meetings. Additionally, she sends me vital information relevant to the parents I work with on a very regular basis. I share this information t each of my meetings, and the parents have told me repeatedly that they have benefitted from the services and information, such as health, IDs, education, etc..

I volunteer to serve the steady stream of clients who need photo ID cards which carry emergency information and establish their residency so they can access services that they qualify for. This work helps me know and understand the immigrant community in my home city. The clients are treated with respect, and I enjoy their gratitude. It is a well organized program making a significant contribution to our community.

LALDEF does amazing work for the community! I helped with a health fair in Trenton in 2011 and couldn't believe how well-organized it was and all the resources that LALDEF provides, both itself and through community partners. LALDEF is providing many important services to immigrants in Central New Jersey.

LALDEF is the best non for profit organization that I've been volunteering for. The programs are really community oriented specially for those in great need: minorities, poor, homeless and forgotten from the government agencies. The Health fair events, the community ID cards are just two of the good programs that help the most to the community. mposso

This is one of the most respected and outstanding non for profit organization not just state but federal level. I've been helping as a volunteer with the ID community program and the results for the users and the community are amazing. LALDEF also has been the "umbrella" for several community and civic associations.
All the best for you "Charo" and LALDEF's staff.

LALDEF does an amazing variety of work that is really needed in the community they serve. They organize attorneys to provide the community with free legal advice and to prepare naturalization applications. In addition they conduct various community education programs. I get emails from them regularly and learn about events and opportunities for education, scholarships, training, tax preparation, etc. For a relatively small non-profit they have a wide and effective outreach. They provide all services and information in both English and Spanish.

LALDEF has been a catalyst for positive action in Mercer County, New Jersey and beyond. Straddling the roles of service provider (with a community ID card, Know Your Rights presentations, and an annual Health Fair, e.g.) and advocate (convening stakeholders to meet with Immigration and Customs Enforcement to demand accountability or testifying against state education policy that patently defies federal law by discriminating against American-born children of immigrants) LALDEF is a leader in the field. We are grateful for the difference the organization is making in community that is crucial to the NJ economy, schools and neighborhoods.

LALDEF has helped us for almost a decade. As a previously elected official, we relied on LALDEF to assist us in reaching the immigrant population in our community and finding ways to better assist them. Although no longer in public office, we now serve on boards that assist community members and we can always count on LALDEF to connect our clients with the most up to date and helpful information available. They are a vital link to the people in our community of Hightstown and East Windsor in Mercer County.

The Great!

All the information they share, their work in developing ID cards, helping Dreamers and promoting the passage of the Dream Act and sponsoring culturally enriching events.

change nothing. They are a wonderful resource.
