FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

HNBA MOURNS THE LOSS OF ADELFA BOTELLO CALLEJO

 
Washington, D.C. – The Hispanic National Bar Association (HNBA) mourns the loss of Dallas civil rights leader and respected attorney Adelfa Botello Callejo. For more than 30 years, Callejo was a civic leader and one of the most-respected Hispanic activists in the country.
 
“We express our sincerest condolences to the family of Adelfa Callejo, an incredible woman who had an immense impact on the civil rights community in the Dallas area and across the nation.”  said HNBA National President Miguel Alexander Pozo, Esq. ”For more than 30 years, Ms. Callejo inspired generations of Hispanic attorneys with her tireless energy and relentless efforts tackling issues of immigration reform, access to the legal process, and equality for the Latino community.” said Mr. Pozo. 
 
Ms. Callejo earned her law degree after taking night courses, and she became the first Hispanic female to graduate from Southern Methodist University Law School. Finding it difficult to find work after her graduation, she opened her own firm along with her husband, Bill Callejo. She began her career as an advocate for the disadvantaged, as an advocate for education equality, housing fairness, immigration, voting rights, and other social justice issues. In 2010, the State Bar of Texas named her a “Texas Legal Legend” as a testament to her many contributions to the legal community and the State of Texas.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
December 10, 2013

CELEBRATING THE LIFE OF NELSON MANDELA 

As we celebrate International Human Rights Day today, the Hispanic National Bar Association (HNBA) joins the world in celebrating the life of a great leader, Nelson Mandela, who touched the lives of so many by standing up for what he believed in.  Mandela’s message that “education is the most powerful weapon you can use to change the world,” continues to inspire all of us towards higher achievement, said HNBA National President Miguel Alexander Pozo.  Moreover, “Mandela’s victory in ending apartheid in a nation of 30 million was a revolutionary moment in our collective history,” said Mr. Pozo.   Indeed, Mandela was the first South African president to be elected in a democratic election, a milestone that he accomplished after spending 27 years in prison.   He is also credited with improving the living conditions of millions in South Africa.  His message of peace has resounded throughout the world. “We are all grateful for his many contributions,” said Mr. Pozo.  The HNBA celebrates the life of this Nobel Prize Winner and encourages all of us to make a difference by becoming active leaders in our communities.
