Most of them haven’t checked into their flights to Puerto Rico yet but the students from the University at Buffalo School of Law who are providing legal services to the island’s residents say their legal paths have already been changed forever as a result.

“Since I joined, my feelings and my state of mind has gone from despair and sadness to a sense of hope and purpose,” said Jonathan Reyes-Colon. “I have met wonderful people who have looked at my country as I look at it, with the same kindness, the same heart, the same willingness not only to help but to tell the world about who we are, Puerto Ricans.”
