La Mancha Awards

2017 Awardees

Casa Cornelia Law Center bestows the annual La Mancha Awards in recognition of outstanding contributions to our mission of providing quality legal services to victims of human and civil rights violations. Like the ubiquitous Don Quixote, Casa Cornelia's dedicated volunteers dare to dream impossible dreams and "tilt at windmills" on behalf of those who cannot.
