Enjoy a recap of our 2019 event:
On April 30, 2019, the Texas Access to Justice Commission and the State Bar of Texas hosted the 10th Annual Champions of Justice Gala Benefiting Veterans at the AT&T Conference Center in Austin, TX. More than $455,050 was raised to help provide civil legal services to low-income Texas veterans.
The Champions of Justice Gala was pleased to welcome United States Marine Corps veteran Phil Klay, author of the short story collection Redeployment, which won the 2014 National Book Award for Fiction and the Chautauqua Prize in 2015.
A huge "Thank You" to our very generous supporters!
We deeply thank the State Bar of Texas for co-sponsoring this event, ensuring that proceeds directly support legal aid for low-income Texas Veterans.
