President’s Message

Resolute in our commitment to the legacy of our founders and leaders over the last half century, MALDEF continues to defy expectations in our legal and advocacy work. Just recently, we successfully defeated a request by the state of Texas and several other short-sighted states to block renewals under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) initiative.

This year, MALDEF marks its 50th anniversary. In unpredictable and challenging times, our half century of vital and continuing civil rights work resonates as a signal of stability and power in opposition to the retrogressive forces that set new and disturbing precedents almost every day.
