Due to the spread of COVID-19 and concerns for the health and safety of all, the Texas Access to Justice Commission will not be holding a physical gathering for the 2020 Champions of Justice Gala Benefiting Veterans.
Unfortunately, now, more than ever, our veterans need our help. We are in the midst of a global public health pandemic and our most vulnerable neighbors are at risk. Indeed, in a public health crisis, low-income families are often disproportionately affected, and sadly, many veterans fall into this category. As you can imagine, this pandemic is only exacerbating the legal issues our veterans are facing.
Which is why we are still planning a gala! – just not in person. This year, to help our veterans in need, our gala will be “held” virtually.
More details about this exciting opportunity will be posted soon. In the meantime, please email Meredith Warren at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions you might have.
We hope you will join us in supporting our veterans.
Times like these reinforce why the Texas Access to Justice Commission is profoundly committed to removing barriers to justice and bolstering legal aid for those in desperate need.
