The CHBA and the CBA's Spanish Speaking Lawyers Committee have partnered with Project Safeguard to provide free divorce and allocation of parental rights clinics to Spanish-speaking victims of domestic violence.
Volunteer attorneys, paralegals, and law students help participants by explaining domestic forms and procedure, giving legal information, and providing referrals to free legal resources. No family law experience is required, but volunteers must be able to speak Spanish conversationally. The clinic is led by an experienced attorney, who provides support for new volunteers.
If you would like to volunteer or obtain more information about the clinics, please register online. If you have any additional questions, please email email@example.com.
The CHBA has partnered with Mi Casa Resource Center to serve small business owners in the Denver metro area with general guidance on issues such as business formation, basic contracts, leases, collections, and intellectual property.
To volunteer, please register. For more information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
An Evening with Centro de Derechos Humanos
Stephanie Erin Brewer, Coordinator of International Affairs, Centro Prodh, Mexico City
The evening will highlight human rights issues, Latin American civil rights, women’s rights, and students’ rights in Latin America – an especially relevant topic given the sensitivity of diplomacy between the U.S. and Mexico.
Wednesday | May 17, 2017 | 5:30 PM
University of Denver | Sturm Hall | Room 453
Located west of the Ricketson Law Building directly across the Campus Green
All are welcome!
Centro de Derechos Humanos recently received the Commitment to Others award from the Mexican Center for Philanthropy and has been recognized by the Ford Foundation as “human rights defenders in Mexico.” Centro Prodh has a 28-year history fighting for human rights in Mexico. The organization has helped numerous people, including survivors of sexual torture by police during the demonstrations in Atenco; extrajudicial executions in Tlatlaya; and has worked in the case of 43 students who disappeared in Ayotzinapa.
