     The Latin American Legal Defense and Education Fund, Inc. (LALDEF)

     
is a grass roots nonprofit organization formed to defend the civil rights of
     Latin Americans, and facilitate their access to health care and education,
     as well as to advance cross-cultural understanding in the Mercer County
     regional area. Founded in 2004 by a diverse group of activists concerned
     by the growing hostile national climate faced by immigrants LALDEF has
     built a solid reputation as a staunch advocate, an effective referral center
     and trusted provider of support, and civic education for Latino immigrants.

     In 2008, LALDEF stitched together the Tremendously Trenton Coalition
     (TTC), a partnership of faith-based, civic, and municipal organizations,
     with the purpose of becoming a catalyst for the integration of immigrants
     in the social fabric of the city. Trenton, the capital of New Jersey, has seen
     its immigrant population grow in recent years to more than 20%, mostly
     Latin Americans. Among these immigrants, only 1 in 5 is a naturalized
     
citizen. [read more].
