The breakfast was an inspiring event raising awareness and funds for Ayuda of the greater Washington D.C. area. This event was appropriately held during Hispanic Heritage Month, which is celebrated from September 15 – October 15. Nannis served as a table host at the event, and has agreed to serve on Ayuda’s Advisory Council. Maritza Carmona and Sarah Chu from the firm also attended.
Ayuda’s mission is in its name, to help. Ayuda provides free legal, social work and interpreter services and support for immigrants from 104 countries, 70% of whom are Spanish-speaking. Nannis has supported Ayuda in the past; most recently when she co-sponsored its 44th Anniversary Fundraiser. As the daughter of an immigrant and an attorney who speaks Spanish, Nannis enjoys using her language abilities to help those in need and is committed to fighting for immigrants’ rights in and outside her legal practice.
