The Palm Beach County Hispanic Bar Association is a nonprofit organization that over two decades has advocated for equality, diversity, representation and inclusion in the legal field. Our organization provides the Palm Beach County community with panels, discussions, and continuing legal education (CLE) on the legal rights and matters affecting Hispanics. We support Hispanics in their paths to the bench and have an outreach system to support Hispanic attorneys, law students, and civic leaders throughout Palm Beach County.
2021 President's Message
I am honored and privileged to serve as President of the Palm Beach County Hispanic Bar Association (“PBCHBA”). PBCHBA is an organization with rich legacy of service and community, and I look forward to continuing that legacy in 2021.
As an Immigrant myself, I have experienced first-hand the difficulties and challenges that immigrants face in the United States. I am a firm believer that through education and representation, our Hispanic community will continue to grow in leadership positions and as a community.
2020 was a challenging year and has uniquely tested our ability to have in-person meetings. However, 2020 has also taught us valuable lessons and further equipped us to serve the community to the best of our ability by providing assistance to Hispanic non-profit organizations. Our current plan for 2021 is to build on the lessons learned from 2020, and move towards reinitiating in-person meetings when public health officials allow for such meetings once again.
PBCHBA is proud of providing the tools that our community needs to foster education and to connect Hispanic attorneys with one another. We are committed to continue to serve through mentoring programs, fulfill CLE requirements, foster referral relationships, and give back to our community through pro bono services and scholarships. Please join us!
On behalf of our Board, thank you for supporting our mission to assist and support the Hispanic Community in South Florida and the work we carry out to advance Hispanics in the legal profession.
Wishing you much joy, health and happiness in 2021!
Lizza C. Constantine, President
