Please join us at our press conference this  Wednesday! We will discuss our strategy to continue this fight in Congress in 2014.   FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE   Media Contact:  Jaime Martinez: (210) 842-9339 Renowned Civil Rights and Immigrant Justice Leader Announces Opening of the Centro de Asistencia Legal al Inmigrante (CALI) to Serve San Antonio's Marginalized Communities  San Antonio, TX- This Wednesday, December 4, 2013 at 1:30 pm, Jaime Martinez, founder and President of the Cesar E. Chavez Leadership and Educational Foundation Service Center (CECLEF or the Center) is proud to announce that the Center will begin offering free legal consultations every Wednesday from 10 am to 4 pm at 1504 E. Commerce St., San  Antonio 78201. Conducted by Pro-Bono attorneys Cindy Medina and George Chumillo of the Medina Law Group, P.C., the goal is to create a safe environment where Spanish-Speaking and low-income individuals and families can go with legal questions and concerns. Imagine the family that is on the brink of being physically and  emotionally broken apart by the failure of our Congressmembers' to  bring Immigration Reform to pass in 2013. For some, a drive to holiday shopping with a broken tail-light could also destroy their opportunity to  watch their children graduate from college. I've been fighting for Latinos and marginalized communities since I was raised in El Barrio de La Tripa on the west side of old San Antonio, said Jaime Martinez, the Founder and President of CECLEF, a non-profit/ 501 (c)(3) located on San Antonio's east side. That upbringing helped toughen and prepare the avid trumpet player and organizer who has spent over three decades impacting the moral fabric of what San Antonio is all about: service, social justice, and progress for poor and marginalized communities, especially immigrants. Since I led my first Cesar Chavez March for Justice in 1996, it has been my dream to help immigrants with quality, pro-bono legal aid. Not a day goes by at the Center, without someone walking through those doors searching for help or answers to personal or emotional challenges, Martinez added. CECLEF has a good reputation in the community for serving the disadvantaged: through the CECLEF Scholarship Fund, their annual Cesar Chavez March for Justice, and decades of fighting for social  justice and immigrant rights through skillfully organized protesting and fighting for Common Sense Immigration Reform. Mr. Martinez has a  well-documented history as a rare and just man who has saved and enhanced the quality of life for countless San Antonian's. On Wednesday, December 4th, at 1:30 pm, Martinez will announce a special grand opening of the new Centro de Asistencia Legal al Inmigrante (CALI), at the Center's main location on E. Commerce.  Attorneys Cindy Medina and George Chumillo will accompany Jaime, along with Adalberto Ruiz, J.D., Dir. of Legal Aid Initiatives at the Center. The Center now offers free legal consultations to immigrants and low-income in the area. Although legal consultations are focused on immigration matters, Imelda Obledo, the manager of the Center also provides resources and solutions to everyday inquiries from paying a light bill to finding scholarships and jobs. CALI's main purpose is to extend high quality legal advice and services to underserved Spanish-speaking communities in the San Antonio area. Through strong advocacy and social justice initiatives, Mrs. Medina, Mr. Chumillo and their pro-bono legal team seek to provide new Americans and non-traditional clients information and opportunities that offer dignity and hope. In support of the CECLEF mission, Martinez invited the managing
