La Raza Centro Legal 42nd Anniversary!
You are cordially invited to La Raza Centro Legal’s 42nd Anniversary Celebration! 

On June 19, 2015 La Raza Centro Legal will celebrate 42 years of service, working for Civil Rights and Immigrant Justice. After 42 years, our fight for justice continues. Every day, La Raza Centro Legal works to keep children in school, prevent families from becoming homeless, help ensure safe and fair working conditions, protect the well-being of seniors, and promote the rights of immigrants. Since 1973, we have provided free legal services and advocacy to low-income, indigenous, immigrant, and Latino residents in the San Francisco Bay Area. We are truly honored and humbled to continue to assist and protect those who would otherwise not have access to legal services.

Thank you for your continued support and for the confidence that you have placed in us. With your support, La Raza Centro Legal will continue to empower Latino, immigrant and low-income communities of San Francisco to advocate for their civil and human rights. We look forward to having you join the prestigious national law firm, legal organizations, businesses, and individual contributors of La Raza.
