Review for Latin American Legal Defense And Educational Fund Inc, Princeton, NJ, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have admired Maria (Charo) Juega since the mid 1990's when we were both active volunteers in the Latin American Task Force of Princeton, NJ. She then had a broad vision for a group that would take on many projects that the Task Force, which chose not to incorporate, could not. This became the Latin American Legal Defense and Education Fund.

LALDEF has exceeded even my most optimistic expectations, notably with the successful identification card for immigrants, now widely used in both Trenton and Princeton.

Role:  Volunteer & I was my church's representative on the Latin American Task Force and helped prepare immigrants to take the citizenship exams.
