6 President s Message "To advance the causes of equality, empowerment, and justice for Latino attorneys and the Latino community in San Diego County through service and advocacy." That is the purpose of the San Diego La Raza Lawyers Association. I welcome you tonight to celebrate together all that we have done in furtherance of this purpose not just over the last year, but to kick off an entire year of celebration as we approach the 35 th anniversary of our "legal" birthday. On January 30, 1979, three founding members, Nicholas S. Aguilar, Jorge Carrillo, and the Honorable Rafael Arreola, set their hands to sign our Association's articles of incorporation. This was just a formality, however, because as early as 1975 a small group of Latino lawyers, there were perhaps only 20 to 30 in the entire County at that time, formed an unincorporated association of professional comrades, both men and women. Since that time, our members have supported each other's professional aspirations, and we have supported each other in numerous other ways as friends, partners, colleagues, mentors, advocates, and even as family when our members have either married, or formed bonds from sweat and tears that are as strong as any blood relationship or legal institution. Through that support we have together accomplished great things and we have grown to represent a powerful voice and actor in our community. Tonight please reflect on our purpose, how we have helped each other accomplish that purpose, and how we can continue to further our purpose and accomplish even greater things together. What you experience tonight is the incarnation of our founding members' vision of what we are capable of doing as a community of Latino professionals. The state of the San Diego La Raza Lawyers Association is strong. Let's keep it that way, together. Very truly yours, Rafael Castellanos SDLRLA President

Mr. Frey's findings are discussed in detail in the ACLU's report titled Wrong Turn Escondido's Checkpoints and Impound Practices Examined. Congratulations on this award!

9 Kevin Keenan, Esq Attorney of the Year SDLRLA's 2013 Attorney of the Year is Mr. Kevin Keenan. For the last eight years, Kevin has served as Executive Director of the ACLU of San Diego and Imperial Counties. Kevin will be moving to New York City in December As stated by President of San Diego La Raza Lawyers Association Rafael Castellanos: "Kevin has worked tirelessly in the San Diego and Imperial Counties to ensure the rights of Latinos and other immigrants. He has shown great loyalty to the Latino community as a strategic partner in civil rights and justice." During Kevin's tenure, the San Diego ACLU led major efforts on immigrants' rights, border justice, voting rights, educational equality, criminal justice reform, and civic education and engagement. His commitment to Latino issues and civil rights is exemplary. We congratulate him on this award. Kevin received his JD from Yale Law School. A list of the San Diego ACLU's highlights of the past eight years with Kevin at the helm include: A successful challenge to the City of Escondido's rental ban ordinance, which required landlords to screen the immigration status of prospective tenants, as well as led adoption of a state law in 2007 to prohibit any other California cities from passing such an ordinance; In June, the ACLU of California birthed the California Voting Rights Project to fight the de facto disenfranchisement bred by outdated election and registration policies systems; Mr. Keenan published a 75 page report with Mexico's National Commission of Human Rights on the humanitarian crisis of migrant deaths along the U.S. Mexico border, finding that more than 5,000 people have died because of both government's deadly practices and policies; He led a rapid response to mistreatment of immigrants and people of color during the 2007 wildfire recovery, including a report issued ten days after the fires, a state law to limit public employees' screening for immigration status during a natural disaster, and a guidebook and training on the rights of immigrants during and after a natural disaster;

Program Director Agustin Lopez II, in his letter of recommendation for her, stated We selected Ms. Ruiz de Esparza [as a student hearing officer] primarily for her demeanor and enthusiasm for contributing positively to the San Diego community. The party is over but our work continues! The San Diego La Raza Lawyers Association Scholarship Fund has awarded the scholarships for 2013 to some very dedicated and inspiring law students, but our mission goes on and we would like to remind you that we will be continuing to accept donations throughout the coming year. The SDLRLA Scholarship Fund is an independent, non profit corporation created by the San Diego La Raza Lawyers Association to carry out educational and scholarship activities. The SDLRLA Scholarship Fund scholarships are not limited to persons of a Latino/Latina background, instead the scholarships are awarded to law students from a variety of backgrounds who have contributed to the betterment of the Latino community. The recipients of the scholarships are law students who have met criteria of community service, financial need, hardship and academic achievement. The SDLRLA Scholarship Fund is qualified as a charitable, tax exempt organization under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code (Tax ID # ), and as 2010 draws to a close, it is time to think about getting that charitable contribution in so you can claim a tax deduction for this year. Putting San Diego La Raza Lawyers Association Scholarship Fund on your year end giving list is a great way to show your support for the hardworking efforts of scholars and future leaders of the legal profession who have made a commitment to the betterment of the Latino community.
