Centro Legal first opened its doors on Sept. 15, 1981, hoping to assist the underserved, especially those who needed to overcome language, cultural and economic barriers. Twenty-seven years later those doors are still open, and the organization has become the state’s leading legal advocate for Latinos, serving more than 3,000 Latinos and their families each year.
The 27th anniversary celebration will take place Oct. 3 from 11:30 a.m.-2:00 p.m. at Traveler’s Insurance headquarters in downtown St. Paul. A surprise keynote speaker is planned along with a report from the organization's Board Chair, Sally Anaya Boyer, and Executive Director Gloria Contreras Edin. The event themes will include key immigration initiatives in Minnesota and maintaining a global perspective.
