Mission Statement

The Center on Latino and Latina Rights and Equality (CLORE) focuses on issues impacting the Latino community in the United States, with the goal of developing progressive strategies for legal reform. The Center seeks to educate lawyers, law students, scholars and the general public on the status of Latinos and Latinas, as well as to advocate for expanded civil rights in the areas that affect the growing Latino population.

The Center is located at the City University of New York School of Law and is believed to be the first of its kind in the world. The Center will host events, create bibliographies, sponsor forums, and develop courses that highlight access to the legal system and explore issues affecting the Latino community. The Law School's library will be the repository for the Center's Special Collection on Latinos and the Law.

The Center will bring together scholars and advocates for discussions and strategic planning, while making available its growing archives on Latino rights to the legal community, activists, elected officials and others in the strongest position to help Latinos and Latinas improve their position in the United States and world society.
