PRESS RELEASE

The Texas Journal on Civil Liberties and Civil Rights [homepage] invites you to participate in the last installment of its brown bag Liberty Lunch
lunch series for the semester. These lunches feature local attorneys who practice in the areas of civil liberties and civil rights.

These informal discussions afford students the opportunity to interact with practitioners from the non-profit, government, and private
sectors that have made a career out of protecting individuals’ liberties.

Jim Harrington, the Director of the Texas Civil Rights Project [bio], which he founded in 1990. The Texas Civil Rights Project is a statewide
community-based, non-profit civil rights foundation, promoting social, racial, and economic justice and civil liberty, through the legal system
and public education, for low income and poor persons.

TCRP has offices in Austin, San Juan, Odessa, and El Paso. Mr. Harrington has spent his thirty-five years as a lawyer in civil rights work,
handling landmark cases involving grand jury discrimination, police miscon¬duct, privacy, voting rights, free speech and assembly, farm worker
organizing, and the rights of persons with disabilities.

Please bring your lunch on November 17 and be prepared for a lively discussion of Mr. Harrington’s work as a civil rights attorney.
Dessert will be provided.
