TU Law students, faculty, and staff raise money for area women and children

Tuesday, October 22, 2013

 

The government shutdown on October 1, 2013, ended Women Infant and Children (WIC) benefits for Oklahomans.  Immediately following the announcement of the shutdown, TU College of Law students recognized the need and launched the 'Half for Half' fundraising campaign to help raise money for people who depend on WIC benefits.

Half for Half encouraged students to donate half of the amount they would typically spend on lunch to WIC.  The campaign was a joint effort between three TU College of Law student organizations: the Black Law Students Association (BLSA), the American Constitution Society (ACS), and the Public Interest Board (PIB).  To-date, the campaign has raised more than $1,500.

TU Law faculty and staff committed to match the amount the students raised, and in many cases gave more.
