2020 was a challenging year. For the Houston Immigration Legal Services Collaborative (HILSC), it was a year of transition, a time for reflection, and an opportunity to learn. Though the pandemic divided us physically, we continued to find ways to collaborate, to innovate, and to show up for each other in happiness, in sadness, and in every moment in between.
Though we are now well into 2021, things have not changed. The pandemic endures, as do the systems that uphold power for some and harm against others. The impact of our work in 2020 also persists. It does so, because of our incredible network. The achievements of HILSC are the result of dedicated individuals across numerous organizations working day-after-day to support their clients and immigrant communities in Greater Houston.
