This was Region I's first exclusive YLD program.  It was a great opportunity to meet with other young lawyers and recent law school graduates to pitch them on becoming involved with the HNBA and the YLD.

The goal of this event was two fold: 1) to introduce HNBA's YLD to young lawyers and recent law school students; and 2) to recruit volunteers for a community service project to build a playground at an elementary school. The HNBA's mission was not only advanced by exposing potential members to the other divisions within the HNBA but it also demonstrated to out guests that HNBA is committed to community service.

This program is at the heart of what the HNBA stands for because it mentors students and creates a strong pipeline of our next generation of HNBA leaders.  It also promotes the success of Latino students in the legal profession, not just during law school, but after graduation.  Great relationships are formed.  The success of the program is in part reflected in the students who participate in the program and later come back to serve as mentors to pay it forward.

This event will invite a panel of HNBA affiliated lawyers and other non-HNBA Latino/a lawyers to help our students navigate and optimize networking opportunities with a focus on those promoted by the HNBA specifically. We will introduce many HNBA opportunities to the students through the topics of networking and mentorship in order to engage more students in the Region XIII division. We are in a rebuilding phase of gathering more HNBA involvement in our region, so we hope to pass out the "Welcome Packets" in order to promote the HNBA and encourage students to become members as well as encourage them to actively participate. We would also like to note that we would like to use a local Latina vendor for our food, and for that reason it is slightly more expensive than it would be to order other types of food.

This event was geared toward members of the Dallas Latina Lawyer Network, some of whom are also HNBA members. This is a group of Latina attorneys in Dallas coming together to support and empower each other. The Dallas Latina Lawyer Network was formed following the success of an annual Latina Leadership Program held in Dallas each year, which was initiated by former HNBA Region XII President Cynthia Sutherland and leadership of the Dallas Hispanic Bar Association.
Jill Lynch Cruz, JLC Consulting, a former member of the HNBA Latina Commission spoke about how Latinas can use career coaching to become more self-aware, confident and empowered.  She discussed research on key barriers and critical success factors for Latina attorneys, how the coaching process works, and how it can serve as a powerful tool for change. Dr. Cruz also offered a complimentary coaching session for all attendees.

This event announced the launch of a fund that would help raise bond funds for Orange County residents in immigration detention. Studies show that unrepresented detained immigrants are able to demonstrate their eligibility for relief from deportation only 6% of the time, while those with lawyers succeed more than ten times as often. Ensuring due process for all and protecting families from the fear of having their parents taken away indefinitely fits squarely with the HNBA's advocacy of issues facing 58 million Latinos in the US.

We also promote each bar association by having their leaders speak and promote their events.  We also had the first Latino District Attorney in NYC, Brooklyn DA Eric Gonzalez, speak and provide an excellent example for our members.

The NMHBA Law Camp is a pipeline program for diverse middle school students from across New Mexico.  The purpose of the program is to encourage diverse students to pursue higher education and careers in the legal profession.  
U.S. District Court Judge James Browning and state district court Judge Cindy Leos presided over the two mock trials that the students put on.
NO
The event did not benefit a specific HNBA program.  However, it is an important educational pipeline program aimed at increasing diversity in the legal profession.
The total cost of Law Camp varies but is typically between $10,000 and $15,000.  The HNBA provided a meal sponsorship for the students in the amount of $350.
The New Mexico Hispanic Bar Association's Summer Law Camp is specifically designed to encourage and inspire diverse students, and specifically Hispanic students, to pursue higher education and legal careers.  The long-term goal is to help improve the diversity of the legal profession.

Region X is again looking to team up with regional legal aid society and APABA-CO (similar to the Gavel Gap we did in the fall) to offer an in-depth training for lawyers on providing trauma-informed care to clients on Friday, April 27, 2018. Many people in poverty experience trauma as the result of violence, human trafficking, family instability, unanticipated health problems, homelessness, and other crises. Advocates—including LASC lawyers helping low-income individuals and pro bono attorneys helping with visa cases—will be equipped with the knowledge and skills necessary to provide effective and informed representation. Though we are still working on the official agenda , we are anticipating that this will be a full day CLE/training.

The purpose of this event is to educate African American and Latino students about pathways towards elected office and the legal field in general. Historically, minorities are greatly underrepresented in the legal and political arena, and that needs to change. Through a panel of judges, legislators, and practitioners, this event will provide insight, tools, and tips for students who are interested in legislative advocacy, policy analysis, and judicial placements. Furthermore, this event aims to connect students with mentors, in order to enrich their network and support system as well as reinvigorate them by giving tangible exposure to successful African American and Latino professionals.

The event has advanced the HNBA's work and mission by allowing me to create a great working relationship with numerous members of the NLLSA National Board, including a close relationship with the NLLSA National President.  She and I are working together on increasing HNBA membership, affiliate memberships, and increasing the distribution of opportunities for law school students.

This event was geared at reaching younger attorneys in the Brooklyn area.  It was the first event HNBA has done in Brooklyn in memory.  To obtain a ticket, you needed to donate to 1 of 4 disaster relief organizations (we didn't handle the money, they just had to affirm they donated at least $25).  The orgs supported relief efforts in Puerto Rico, Texas, USVI and Caribbean, and Mexico.  We wanted to give options so people could donate to the cause that they cared about most.  We estimate we raised $1500 this way for the disaster relief organizations.
No.
YES
Yes, but not for HNBA and we didn't handle the money - it was donated directly through online links to the four disaster relief organizations
