Puerto Rican Bar of Florida celebrates 10th anniversary

THE PUERTO RICAN BAR ASSOCIATION of Florida held its 10th Anniversary Gala on Miami Beach in conjunction with the PRBA’s annual Moot Court Competition, which was based on the constitutional and civil rights issues relating to the right to vote in Puerto Rico. Puerto Ricans residing in Puerto Rico cannot vote in presidential elections and do not have any voting representation in Congress. The Moot Court Competition took place in the Historical Courtroom at the Miami-Dade County Courthouse. The competition was presided over by Judge Migna Sanchez-Llorens, Judge Peter Lopez, and Justice Luis Gonzalez from New York. U.S. Congressman Pedro R. Pierluisi gave the keynote address on the civil rights concerns relating to the Puerto Rican suffrage issue. Pictured from the left are Alejandro Tirado-Luciano, treasurer; Hector R. Rivera, regional VP for the Third District; Yesenia Collazo, regional VP for the Fourth District; Richard R. Robles, president; Rep. Pierluisi; and the newly installed board of directors Judge Anthony Suarez, president; Gabriel A. Alonso, treasurer; Rudwin Ayala, regional VP for the Fourth District; Marie E. Masson, secretary; and Richard Valle, regional VP for the Fifth District.

Ileana Ros-Lehtinen Recognizes the 10th Anniversary of the Puerto Rican Bar Association of Florida

United States Representative Ileana Ros-Lehtinen:

Mr. Speaker, I would like to take a minute today to recognize a remarkable south Florida organization, the Puerto Rican Bar Association of Florida, that will soon be celebrating its 10th-year anniversary in Miami.

Over the past 10 years, the association has been dedicated to public service in my home State of Florida, preserving the civil rights, the political rights and responsibilities of Puerto Ricans as Americans, as well as Floridians.

The Puerto Rican Bar Association of Florida also serves as an educational tool for undergraduate, graduate, and law students through a Moot Court Competition, which will be held this year in conjunction with the association's historic anniversary.

I congratulate its president, Richard Robles, for his impressive work and wish everyone in the association continued success on behalf of the Puerto Rican community of Florida.
