Federico Velez, a lawyer who for more than three decades advocated on behalf of Newark’s Latino community and in support of the broader community, will have a North Ward intersection named for him this afternoon.
The intersection of Bloomfield and Clifton avenues, near where he set up his legal office in 1978, will be christened Federico Velez, Esq. Place at 1 p.m.
Velez had a long affiliation with The North Ward Center, the non-profit social services and community development organization, which was founded in 1970 by Steve Adubato Sr. in the same building Velez would later set up his practice.
Adubato called the gesture “a great honor to a great man.”
“Federico was a dedicated attorney, but his passion was education,” Adubato said.
“He wanted to make sure children in Newark had the same opportunities that he had. Though he became a successful lawyer, he never turned his back on his community.”
