Need a hero? Meet local nonprofit Human Rights Initiative of North Texas, which fights for the rights of asylum seekers and immigrants in an atmosphere that's made their plight difficult, at best. This collection of attorneys, social workers, students, pastors and volunteers has been on the frontlines of immigration law since 1999, but since 2017 their mission has become more urgent. Under Executive Director Bill Holston, their attorneys joined the "war room" at DFW Airport during the first days of the Trump administration's "travel ban" on individuals from predominantly Muslim countries, working to free those detained at the airport. Today, they are focused on the children separated from asylum-seeking parents at the border: speaking out at protests and community events, serving on panels that discuss legal remedies, recruiting and training pro-bono attorneys and connecting resources across the region to reunite families.
