We are all immigrants

Welcome to LALDEF.

Established in 2004, the Latin American Legal Defense and Education Fund (LALDEF) promotes the rights of all immigrants (with a focus on the Latin American community in the Mercer County area); facilitates access to health care, education and legal representation; advocates for the integration of immigrants; and fosters inter-cultural communication to strengthen our communities.

We operate through our values of support, education, and justice.

LALDEF offers an array of services in-house and also acts as a conduit referring clients to other agencies. In this work and in our advocacy, the overarching goal is to dismantle barriers that stand in the way of a more fair and just society and to support the incorporation of immigrants in a way that strengthens the social fabric overall.

LALDEF is open with limited capacity due to COVID-19.


Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday
We also offer ID cards on Saturdays, by appointment only.
