Recognizing Legislative Heroes

Texas RioGrande Legal Aid (TRLA) joined the Texas Access to Justice Foundation and Commission recently in honoring Senator Juan “Chuy” Hinojosa and Representative Todd Hunter for their commitment to access to justice issues in the Texas legislature. Texas Supreme Court Justice Nathan L. Hecht presented the legislators with Legislative Hero Awards for their contributions to securing state funding for legal aid providers.

The celebration was held on October 10th in Corpus Christi.

The Texas Access to Justice Commission and Foundation launched the Legislative Hero Award program in 2010 to recognize legislators who, through their efforts, have significantly advanced access to justice in Texas by assisting with the appropriation of funds and/or other substantive activities related to the provision of legal aid in the state.
