Dear Editor:
You will get hundreds of these, I know, but I thought it worth asking you to consider a donation to Human Rights Initiative of North Texas, here in Dallas. This non-profit was founded in 1999, and has established an exemplary record of providing legal representation to indigent applicants for asylum. HRI leverages its funding substantially by recruiting, training and supporting volunteer lawyers to prepare asylum applications, accompany clients to the Houston Asylum office, and represent them in IJ Court. In addition, it provides psychological and social service assessment and referral services, and works closely with Parkland Hospital's VIP Center, which provides medical and psychiatric services to survivors of torture. Most recently, HRI prepared the first batch of visa applications for a group of Vietnamese women involved in human trafficking. As an HRI donor and volunteer lawyer, I know that your funds would be stewarded wisely and go a long way to supporting this important work. For further information, please visit HRI's website at

Editor's Note: As to the funds remaining from the 9/11 seminar, a shortlist of organizations was prepared last year based on suggestions from the 350+ attendees of that seminar. However, we do intend to take actions in assisting not-for-profit projects/institutions in the immigration law field in the future. Any information sent to us in this connection will be carefully reviewed. Thank you for your comments.
