Join us after work for a celebration with leading Latino legal professionals and members of the business community to celebrate CRLA's work!

Guests will enjoy a festive, Latino-culture inspired event that brings together new and old friends to honor our advocates and the communities they serve. The silent and live auction will feature artwork from Latino artists as well as getaway packages, all to support CRLA!

Justice requires the resources of urban supporters, who understand that the well-being of rural areas is deeply tied to the urban communities where they live.
