Supporting the Next Generation of Latino Leaders

Prof. Jorge Elorza and I are active in Latino Dollars for Scholars, the Rhode Island chapter of a national effort to provide stipends for Latinos attending college.  I had the honor of delivering the keynote address at this year’s awards banquet, and it was a great opportunity to address so many bright and ambitious young people, plus their families, friends, and supporters in the community.  I spoke on the need to improve the representation of all people of color in the legal profession, and the efforts we have made at Roger Williams Law to target the best and brightest Latinos, which were detailed in the cover story of our most recent edition of the RWU Law magazine.  Here is a link to that story, and below is a picture of some justifiably proud winners of our scholarships.
