April 2019 Newsletter

Message from the HABA Board:

It is that wonderful time of the year when the snow finally melts, flowers begin to blossom, and the streets look lively and green again. 

Spring comes with the ideas of rebirth, joy, and growth.  I'm eager to collaborate with the board and its members to advance justice and to promote knowledge of the law and the legal system.

Come welcome spring with us this Saturday!

- Pakou Moua, HABA Treasurer
