LALDEF is a wonderful nonprofit organization. It has giving me, along with many other students, the help we needed to search and apply to colleges, offered us tutoring, helped us plan our senior year in high schol. along with many others. We received all this through LALDEF's mentoring program FUTURO. We enjoyed ourself while learning and helping others. We had an awesome experience and the best is that we will have the opportunity to keep doing everything we did for another year.

Laldef works with AARP's Tax-Aide program to provide the language assistance necessary to serve the Latina community. As partners we provide tax preparation for all who come to our site. We do the paper work to obtain an ITIN and do taxes for undocumented workers who are anxious to show good citizenship as well as those who might otherwise struggle with the required paperwork. Last tax season we did over 250 tax returns for individuals and families throughout the region.

As an employer of Latin Americans in Mercer and Burlington Counties, I have relied on LALDF to provide me information important to the Latin American community. I especially value their bilingual emails that I share with our employees that provide critical information about free legal consultation and financial planning, for example. Staff of LALDF also do extensive public speaking and host community forums that help the larger community understand the problems faced by recent immigrants.

I emailed questions to LALDF about potentially discriminatory actions by a local police department, and received a prompt reply with valuable information.

Increase the staff so they could do on-site visits to work places and houses of worship to provide information about their services to the local Latin American community.

I had a wonderful opportunity to partner with LALDF and sit on the board member group. This organization has provided countless efforts to provide health services and valuable resources to the Hispanic Community in Trenton. Our partnership has allowed us to better serve the Hispanic Community and provide an extensive outreach.

My experience with LALDEF is that it is managed by Maria Juega very well. This organization shows up at many local organizations' conferences and helps residents of this state understand the plight of both documented and undocumented immigrants impacted by Homeland Security as well as local police departments. Immigrants of many countries enrich the economy and the diversity in New Jersey. When immigrants suffer abuse or are threatened by deportation, this organization makes certain that they are well represented. On request, Ms. Juega goes out of her way to be helpful. While I was teaching a college course named Issues in Intercultural Communication, I saw in the local paper an article on an immigrant student who was honored for leading his high school graduating class academically. She helped me locate him (when all other attempts failed) and he agreed to speak to my class about his immigration experiences so my students would understand the difficulty many persons experience.

I have turned to LALDEF on quite a few occasions for help and support. Each time the organization was especially helpful, insightful, knowledgeable, and encouraging. Whether the specific task has been to educate and inform, to help support clients, to advocate for public policy, or something else, LALDEF and especially Maria Juega the Executive Director have been wholly helpful and positive. I would encourage anyone interested in the broad field of immigration reform and the best ways to serve people who are often taken advantage of and discriminated against to turn to LALDEF. It will be a positive and rewarding experience.

The Latin American Defense Legal and Education Fund fills an important gap in services for the Latino population. The staff works tirelessly to serve its constituency, often without much financial support.
