Events to check out

A couple of interesting events are going on in Minnesota’s legal community that are worthy of mention.

First, Centro Legal, which provides legal assistance to low-income Latinos in Minnesota, is celebrating 25 years of service this year. To commemorate the occasion, the organization is hosting an event on Dec. 4 at Pepito’s Restaurant on Chicago Avenue in Minneapolis, beginning at 6:00 p.m. The celebration -- which is open to the public -- will include music, dinner and a formal program emceed by Minnesota Rep. Carlos Mariani, DFL-St. Paul. Tickets are $70 (with a not-for-profit and student rate of $25) and can be purchased by calling Centro Legal at (651) 393-2666.

Also of note is an effort by Minnesota Advocates for Human Rights and Common Roots Cafe to bring attention to the issue of violence against women. For 16 days -- Nov. 25 (International Day Against Violence Against Women) through Dec. 10 (International Human Rights Day) -- Common Roots Café is displaying photographs related to the MAHR’s work on women’s rights. “The 16 Days Campaign” recognizes that violence against women is a violation of international human rights.

Stop by to check out the display -- and maybe even have a bite to eat while you’re at it!
