Review for LATIN AMERICAN LEGAL DEFENSE AND EDUCATIONAL FUND INC, Princeton, NJ, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Maria Juega, the LALDEF Board and volunteers provide information to the Latino and non-Latino community year round with very little $$ and sometimes $0. Its tireless work in the community includes: Futuro (a high school mentoring program), annual community health fairs, provision of Community I.D. cards in Trenton and Princeton, NJ., dissemination of a plethera of information on immigration issues, including seminars, discussions etc. in Princeton, both university and town, as well as in surrounding municipalities, and assisting individuals with unfair labor practices and immigration problems.

Role:  Board Member & Member of board for several years. Hands on volunteer for health fairs, befriended a Latino family 13 years ago, helped mother find work, mentored 4 year old who is now 17 - we are now family.
