Jackie Rodriguez, a paralegal with CABA Pro Bono Legal Services, recently was honored by Libre Initiative for her valuable contribution in organizing and executing various monthly naturalization clinics across Miami-Dade County.
Her dedication and commitment to promoting the values and principles of economic freedom has gained her recognition from the community.
“I am very pleased to have been honored in this way, and to see our work recognized for helping this often vulnerable sector of our community,” Rodriguez said.
The Libre Initiative is an organization that advances the principles and values of economic freedom to empower the U.S. Hispanic community to thrive and contribute to a more prosperous America. Since 2011, Libre has dedicated itself to equipping the Hispanic community with the tools needed to be prosperous.
Rodriguez has worked for CABA Pro Bono since 2006 and through the years has helped thousands of clients become U.S. citizens. Prior to working at CABA Pro Bono, she worked in her native country of Cuba as an attorney in the area of family law for 15 years.
CABA Pro Bono Legal Services was established in 1984 by several of CABA’s past presidents to assist the needs of poor and indigent Spanish-speaking individuals in Miami-Dade County by connecting them with Spanish-speaking attorney volunteers. In 1992, CABA Pro Bono was nationally recognized by former President George H.W. Bush as a Points of Light affiliate. It is funded in part through grants awarded by the Florida Bar Foundation and proceeds raised at CABA’s annual “Art in the Tropics” fundraising cocktail party.
In 2013, CABA Pro Bono also began collaborating with other organizations to provide additional services to veterans, active members of the armed forces, victims of human trafficking and unaccompanied immigrant minors.
