EmPOWERed for PI Group: Community-Building Lunch: Study Break!

Location: Jury Room CCJ 2.310

Join EPI for a study break! This event is part of the Justice Center initiative designed to support students whose lived experiences intersect with the legal systems they seek to challenge in their careers. For example: students who have themselves or had family members become entangled in the criminal legal system who are interested in public defense work; immigrant students, or students who are the children or family members of immigrants seeking to challenge the immigration system; low-income students seeking to challenge laws and policy that further marginalize poor people such as predatory lending, cash bail, etc.

EPI gatherings serve as a space for dialogue, mentorship, and resource-sharing tailored to the particular needs and strengths of students whose public interest work as attorneys may be directly tied to their lived experiences and/or those of their loved ones. This lunch will be a time to continue building community, ask questions about the summer job application process, and discuss what programming to expect in the Spring semester.

Lunch provided. Please RSVP by noon on Monday, November 27: https://utexas.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_41qwQ0P4QuqUct0
