MUSE was with Jaime Camil prior to the Los Angeles Center for Law and Justice Awards Gala. Camil was honored as Cultural Ambassador on Thursday evening.

Founded in 1973, the Los Angeles Center for Law and Justice (LACLJ) has provided legal advocacy to low-income and primarily immigrant and Latino populations in Los Angeles for over 40 years. In its early years, the organization played a historic role on a range of social justice issues related to racial discrimination, police brutality, school desegregation, and the illegal involuntary sterilization of Latina women.

Over time, the agency evolved to focus on direct services and, beginning in the late 1990s, greatly expanded its work for victims of domestic violence. Today, LACLJ provides family and immigration law services to over 600 clients per year and conducts legal education to approximately 1,500 community members and 3 providers.

Over 75% of clients are survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault. In addition to survivors, LACLJ also serves low-income parents in high-conflict custody disputes and vulnerable youth in parenting and immigration matters.
