Meet our advisors

The Advisory Committee is CILA’s connection to the needs of the attorneys and agencies across the state of Texas. The committee is comprised of 13 attorneys and advocates from organizations working on children’s immigration cases. The committee meets quarterly to inform and advise CILA on our work and help us meet our mission to ensure more children are represented and to provide the resources and expertise needed to support those who work to represent them.
