Message from the President & General Counsel

Happy Thanksgiving to all! As we celebrate this most American of holidays and reflect on this momentous year for Latinos and for the entire country, we express thanks for all of you. This month and its critical election have confirmed the Latino community's ability to accomplish tremendous justice and progressive change in our country. MALDEF's contributions to this continuing and longstanding legacy of increased justice in the United States would be impossible without your generous partnership. Thank you for your commitment to the Constitution, to civil rights, and to the Latino community this year. It makes a real difference!

Sincerely Yours,

Thomas A. Saenz
President and General Counsel
