6 President s Message In November of 2011, I gave birth to my first baby, a little boy named Lazarito. One month into my year as President of San Diego La Raza Lawyers, I became a mother. Other mothers had repeatedly told me that this would change my life in ways that I could not even begin to imagine. They were right. My worldview completely changed. I realized that the time that I spent away from my child needed to be something truly worthwhile. My involvement with La Raza Lawyers has definitely been a worthwhile endeavor. We build a community of professionals, mentor new attorneys, offer CLEs, involve ourselves in political activity, and work on community service projects. I welcome you to this year s annual San Diego La Raza Lawyers Scholarship Fund Dinner and Gala. We have had quite a year and have a lot to celebrate. We created a new webpage. We adopted a new logo. We hosted our first ever mayoral debate. We continue to work with our non profit arm to give law school scholarships and bar exam scholarships. I have to credit my board for having the vision and dedication to bring so many projects to fruition this past year. My board members contributed countless hours to the organization and our events. Renee Galente took on recreating our webpage and working with a design firm on our logo. Rafael Castellanos spearheaded the mayoral debate with plenty of help from Rodrigo Guevara and Claudia Arzaga. Joanna Solozabal was my right hand helping out at so many events. Lorena Slomanson and Eran Bermudez, experienced past presidents, were often my sounding boards and advisors. Sergio Feria was a constant and trusted treasurer, handling all financial reports. And Nadia Bermudez consistently handled the organizing and editing of the weekly announcements that reach over 1000 community members. Of course we were able to hold a mayoral debate, redesign the webpage, adopt a logo, hold a judiciary reception, mixers and CLEs! I had an excellent team willing to take on this work. I could not have been involved with La Raza Lawyers without the support of USD School of Law. My executive assistants, Graylin Clavell and Roseanne Preciado, made my life easier in handling administrative tasks and event details. My deans, Dean Mitnick, Dean Wiggins, and Dean Ferruolo, never closed the doors when I wanted to bring events, meetings, or speakers to USD. Whether it was a mayoral debate or a board retreat, there was always a place for us at USD. And I could not have made it through this year without the support of my husband who was my sounding board, my partner, and my best friend. I was already pregnant when I debated becoming President of La Raza Lawyers and he repeatedly encouraged me to take on the role and handled childcare duties during meetings and events.

7 I am very proud of what La Raza Lawyers accomplished this past year. But I would be remiss in thinking it was something that was completed exclusively by this year s board. We had, and continue to have, a lot of community support. Our partners in the San Diego County Bar, law schools, firms, and other community organizations have made this possible. The work done by past presidents and past board members has set an example. This is worthwhile work and it is work that I am confident will continue this coming year with our newly elected board members under Rafael Castellanos leadership. I hope you enjoy the evening and look at the valuable contributions San Diego La Raza Lawyers continues to make in the community each year. It is this worthwhile work scholarships, service, professional development that brings us together every year to meet with our colleagues, reconnect and celebrate.

She has spent much of her time involved with the Latino community. As a member of CAUSA, Oregon s Immigrant and Civil Rights Coalition, she had the opportunity to lobby at the state capitol and make a presentation about the DREAM Act at a MECHA conference.

This past summer, Adriana interned at the Employee Rights Center in City Heights and helped many indigent clients with immigration issues. She has also participated in several of the San Diego Immigrant Rights Consortium workshops. Her commitment to the Latino community led her to assume the position of President of the La Raza Law Student Association at California Western School of Law. She is interested in pursuing a career in immigration and criminal defense so that she may help those underrepresented and often disadvantaged minorities. Just because the party is over that does not mean our work is done. The San Diego La Raza Lawyers Association Scholarship Fund has awarded the scholarships for 2012 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.
