2013 Nominee: LatinoJustice PRLDEF
Time and time again Latinos fall prey to the injusticia that exists within the systems of education, housing, voting, immigration and employment. However, LatinoJustice PRLDEF has been one group of Revolucionarios fighting since 1972 for the civil rights of Latinos. This group of lawyers uses social media to engage and inform Latinos of their rights so that they can strike back against the system. Some of the more Influential social media engagements include Twitter Town Halls meetings and a Tumblr to report stories of Latinos being stopped and accosted by the NYPD. Their efforts to educate, empower, and engage Latino communities have made them one of the most powerful Latino civil rights organizations of today.
