THE LATIN AMERICAN Law Students Association (LALSA) likes
to end the school year with a bang. This year was no exception.
In April, LALSA held La Gran Fiesta, its annual mix of entertainment,
food, award presentations, and inspirational talk.
Providing the inspiration was keynote speaker Rafael P. Collazo,
a Philadelphia activist who has led voter registration drives as
the East Coast Director of the United States Hispanic Leadership
Institute. He also organized the annual Northeast Latino
Student Leadership Conference and co-founded the Latino Online
LALSA presented its Orgullo (“Pride”) Award to Anita Santos-
Singh, executive director of Philadelphia Legal Assistance.

Services. Among her many affiliations, she is a member of the
Board of Directors of the Hispanic Bar Association of Pennsylvania
Legal Education Fund.
