Latino lawyers make up just 3% of the national average and the Hispanic Bar Association of DC is working to increase that number by providing mentoring and networking between law students, lawyers, and judges throughout Washington, DC. The HBADC is an entirely volunteer-powered organization and many of it’s members were the first in their families to graduate high school, college, and to become lawyers. They are driven to help provide opportunities to others in the community and devote a significant amout of time to pro bono with individauls and organizations, particularly around the issues of undocumented children. Join them for their next networking event with Salsa lessons at Cafe Citron on September 24.
