MALDEF works to ensure that the Latino community enjoys ready access to a judicial system that provides meaningful redress to the denial of rights with respect to all basic human needs and services.

Through legal action, MALDEF works to help enact laws and policies to ensure that the Latino community has equal access to the same rights and benefits available to everyone else in this society.

MALDEF is committed to seeing that the days of separate and unequal access are relegated to the past.
