And they are off!

January 20, 2019

Winter Storm Harper proved to be no match for our hearty, committed students!!  After 4 flight cancellations and re-bookings they will be in the air soon on their way to Texas.  Our team of #UBLawResponds US Mexico Border Clinic students are at the airport and ready to start their journey to Dilley, Texas where they will provide pro bono legal services to the women and children seeking asylum at the South Texas Family Detention Center.  


We can still use your support - please share this link with friends and family and help us reach our fundraising goal!  Stay tuned to our blog to hear updates on their journey.
