The Board of Directors of the Puerto Rican Legal Defense and Education Fund announced today that after 37 years it will change its name to LatinoJustice PRLDEF. The new brand reflects the evolving nature of the Latino community in the United States, the makeup of the organization’s clients, and the cases it undertakes.
“This is a result of a natural progression of our growth and our success over these past 37 years,” said David Arroyo, LatinoJustice PRLDEF’s Chairman of the Board. “We have been protecting the civil rights of all Latinos for many years and our new name is a more accurate reflection of the national scope and pan-Latino nature of the work we do. Our name may change, but our commitment to the Latino community -- including the Puerto Rican community -- remains just as strong as ever."
