2014 Equal Justice Works Fellow, Teresita Ramos, works with the Disability Law Center, providing legal services to low-income, immigrant Hispanic children with disabilities in Lawrence, MA. Her work addresses the widespread denial of education services and empowers parents to enforce their rights through culturally-competent advocacy training. Teresita’s Fellowship is made possible by the generous donations from the 2013 Equal Justice Works Annual Dinner’s “Text-to-Give” campaign.
Most recently, Teresita helped one of her clients’ son, Sebastian, receive anIndividualized Education Plan for his reading skills. Her efforts were featured in the Wellesley Townsmen.
