Unaccompanied Minor Crisis

On this page the Hispanic Issues Section will maintain a listing of trainings and volunteer opportunities around the state regarding the unaccompanied minor crisis.  If you have a training or volunteer opportunity you would like to see on this page, or any other comments, please email us!

The State Bar of Texas has created a comprehensive resource page that is also going to be updated constantly, and contains additional resources and information about training and volunteer opportunities, as well as information regarding the organizations, firms and individuals working together to address this crisis.  The Hispanic Issues Section applauds the State Bar and its leaders for their tremendous commitment and assistance.  See the State Bar of Texas resource page here.

In addition, Chief Justice Nathan Hecht of the Texas Supreme Court has called on attorneys to volunteer to assist in this crisis.  See the video here.
