LatinoJustice PRLDEF

LatinoJustice PRLDEF (LJP) is one of the foremost Latino civil rights organizations in the country. We work to create a more just society, by using and challenging the rule of law to secure transformative, equitable and accessible justice, by empowering our community, and by fostering leadership through advocacy and education. Litigating precedent-setting law reform impact cases across the country and training young people to be leaders in their communities, LJP has profoundly improved the way Latinos are treated in U.S. society, working to ensure that they have more opportunities for political, economic, social and educational equality since 1972.  LJP’s legal work is based on five pillars: Criminal Justice, Economic Justice, Immigrant Rights, Puerto Rico, and Voting Rights. All our work focuses on addressing systemic discrimination and ensuring equal access to justice in the advancement of the rights and opportunities of Latinos in our communities.
