On October 20th, Casa Cornelia will celebrate its twenty-fifth anniversary of quality pro-bono legal services at the annual La Mancha Awards. We hope you can join us for a night of celebration and reflection!
For twenty-five years, Casa Cornelia has provided free legal services to indigent victims of human rights violations lacking access to the legal system through no fault of their own. Last year alone, Casa Cornelia was able to serve over 2,440 men, women and children because of the support of the legal community through its pro bono service and our generous sponsorship of the La Mancha Awards. On October 20, 2018, Casa Cornelia will celebrate its twenty-fifth anniversary at the annual La Mancha Awards.
Our presentation will feature Pulitzer Prize-Winning Journalist Nicholas Kristof, as our keynote speaker. After joining The New York Times in 1984, Kristof served as a correspondent in Los Angeles, Hong Kong, Beijing, and Tokyo. He has covered presidential politics, interviewed everyone from President Obama to Iranian President Ahmadinejad, and was the first blogger on The New York Times website. In 1990 Kristof and his wife, Sheryl WuDunn, became the first husband-wife team to win a Pulitzer Prize for journalism, for their coverage of China's Tiananmen Square democracy movement. Kristof won his second Pulitzer in 2006 for what the judges called "his graphic, deeply reported columns that, at personal risk, focused attention on genocide in Darfur and that gave voice to the voiceless in other parts of the world."
