Dr. Claudia Galindo's work with the Latino community recognized by the Baltimore City Mayor

Every year, during the Hispanic Heritage Month celebration, the Baltimore City Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake recognizes the work and advocacy of students and volunteers working with the Latino community. This year, the Mayor recognized the work of Dr. Claudia Galindo (Assistant Professor in the Language, Literacy and Culture program) for her commitment to the Latino Community. As Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake's stated "when President Obama announced his program to allow immigrant students for deferred action and work authorization in the United States this past summer, Claudia was one of the first to volunteer to assist with the process. Since the first community DACA clinic at CASA de MD on August 16, Dr. Claudia Galindo has volunteered over 50 hours helping students fill out applications, and reviewing supporting documents". Definitely, Dr. Claudia Galindo's "enthusiasm and dedication to the Latino community and to the city of Baltimore are truly commendable, and an inspiration to all that cross her path!"

If interested, given that Dr. Galindo has worked so close with CASA de MD, you could include CASA's website, in particular, the page focusing on the Dream Act.
