Special Report: What If It Were Me? An On-The-Ground Look At Women At The Border
Edited by Alicia Barrett
April Wimberley is an attorney at Hogan Lovells, a pro-bono prisoners' advocate, and the star of our past episode #19. April recently traveled to Dilley, Texas to volunteer as a legal advocate for detained immigrant women. April recorded her reflections from each day -- from admiring the women's tremendous strength, to witnessing a mother's reunification with her two sons, to hearing the plight of women fleeing both gang violence and domestic violence. Her account inspires us all to put ourselves in the shoes of women at the border and ask, "What if it were me?"
