From time to time I blog about fun experiences I have as an attorney. Last week, I was a guest lecturer for a Civil Rights course at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California. I gave the students some background information on the current Central American refugee crisis. We talked about the difficulties that unaccompanied minors face in the court system (especially if they don't have an attorney) and the family detention nightmare. I showed them youtube clips of attorneys who volunteered their time in Artesia, New Mexico, and we brainstormed how non-lawyers could organize in a meaningful way to help these families. It was a ton of fun for me, and I hope as much for the students, too!
