Global Legal Empowerment Brigades

Public Profile

About This Organization

Purpose:
Global Human Rights Brigades is a secular, international student-operated volunteer organization whose mission is to provide greater equality to underserved communities throughout the world. Along with affiliate groups at other distinguished universities, our Texas A&M team will recruit student volunteers to travel abroad and work with foreign lawyers in rural Honduran and Panamanian communities. On these brigades, we will work together to provide legal clinics, legal case resolution, human rights workshops, and community bank awareness which will all work towards our goal of developing community progress and sustainability. Our current emphasis is to help the impoverished villages in Panama and Honduras in August/January, with the ideology that we are successful when the community is empowered to lead its own development.
