In order to work more closely with the Chiapas authorities, our executive director, Douglas Keillor, and our national projecWe are proud to share the news that the Minnesota Hispanic Bar Association (MHBA) has awarded us the Manuel Cervantes Endowment Fund award, which consists of a $15,000 donation to continue our work for the benefit of the Hispanic youth in conflict with the law and the communities from which they come.

Through this donation we will be able to cover, among other things, our summer legal internship who will help us expand our activities in Latin America. In particular, we will be able to collect important data about the living situation of the youths in prison and the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic measures which were implemented in youth detention centers in the region.
