The HNBA Board of Governors, HNBA VIA Fund Board of Directors, and HNBA National Office Team recognize the magnitude of the global pandemic surrounding Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) and its unprecedented impact on our members, partners, community members, and the legal profession overall.

As the National Voice of the Hispanic Legal Community, and a voice for the interests and concerns of our Latinx communities, HNBA and VIA have gathered a list of informational and community resources, including public health information, during this time of national need. We are here to help each other and to stay connected in this time of social distancing.
