The United States District Court for the Southern District of Indiana and the Indiana State Bar Association Latino Affairs Committee will host a discussion about Puerto Rico’s recovery and access to justice after Hurricane María at its second annual Hispanic Heritage Month celebration.
Efforts to provide legal assistance after the hurricane were led by Adi G. Martínez Román, executive director of the Puerto Rico Access to Justice Fund Foundation, who will serve as the event’s keynote speaker.
Martínez Román will discuss the challenges presented by Hurricane María and how the legal community was able to provide relief and emergency legal services to low-income and vulnerable populations.
The free event will start at 2 p.m. Oct. 5 in the Sarah Evans Barker Courtroom at the Birch Bayh Federal Building and United States Courthouse. One hour of CLE credit will be provided. Pre-registration is required.
