Episode Notes

During her tenure as president, Hilarie Bass has focused a lot of the American Bar Association’s energies on aiding homeless youth, not just in the U.S., but around the world. In this report from On The Road at the 2018 ABA Midyear Meeting, host Jim Calloway talks to Casey Trupin, Michael Santos, Angela Vigil, Melanie Redman, Darla Bardine, and Stephen Gaetz about the ABA homeless youth initiatives President Bass has inspired and how lawyers can get involved.
