The Puerto Rican Legal Defense and Education Fund (PRLDEF), headquartered in New York City, is the major civil rights advocacy organization for the Puerto Rican community of the United States. PRLDEF was incorporated in February 1972, taking its place among institutions such as the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People Legal Defense Fund (NAACP LDF) and the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund (MALDEF). The three main series in Part 1: Executive and Administrative Records of PRLDEF are the annual reports, legal division files, and the records of the board of directors. The annual reports provide brief summaries of the major cases tried by the organization. The legal division files include additional reports on cases with background material. The board of directors series contains minutes of meetings from 1971-1985 and correspondence.
