Last month, The Chicago Community Trust announced its six Trust Fellows for 2014, and LAF’s own Miguel Keberlein Gutiérrez was on the list. Miguel is the supervisor of the Illinois Migrant Legal Assistance Project (IMLAP) and Co-Director of the Immigrants and Worker’s Rights Practice Group here at LAF. He was named an Emerging Leader by the Chicago Community Trust, metropolitan Chicago’s community foundation. The Trust Fellowship recognized his leadership talent for nonprofit organizations, his excellence in the sector, and will grant $30,000 to Miguel to fund his professional development.
“The Trust Fellows are individuals who will pave the next decade of innovation for our region,” says Terry Mazany, president and chief executive officer of The Chicago Community Trust, and “we have a chance to celebrate the contributions of these individuals and support their innovative spirit.”
Way to go, Miguel!
