LATINX CIVIL RIGHTS WEBINAR SERIES

Part of the TAMU Law Answers webinar series

Latinx Series

Texas A&M University School of Law and the Network for Justice are hosting a webinar series to examine pressing issues facing Latinx communities.

We encourage students, lawyers, and community leaders who care about Latinx civil rights to join us in these discussions. Our goal is to engage a variety of people in a multi-generational conversation that helps us understand the challenges and opportunities that Latinxs are experiencing in the United States.

Webinars will be held every other Tuesday at 2:00 pm Central, 12:00 pm Pacific, throughout the Fall 2020 semester. Please click on the registration links to join us.

The Network for Justice

network for justic logoThe Network for Justice is a project of the American Bar Foundation committed to transforming Latinx civil rights through sustained collaboration among community organizations, the practicing bar, scholars, law, and policy schools. This project is a part of “The Future of Latinos in the United States: Law, Opportunity, and Mobility,” - an initiative that explores how law and policy shapes the incorporation of Latinxs across the nation through four key drivers of opportunity and mobility: immigration; education; economic participation; and political participation and civic engagement. You can learn more about what the project already has done by going to our website: futureoflatinos.org.


While the panelists are all attorneys, they will be discussing the law generally, and nothing in the webinar should be considered as legal advice. Attendees should consult their own legal advisor to address their own unique circumstances.
