UTD International Justice Mission is a group of exceptional and altruistic students from UT Dallas. Every few weeks the UTD International Justice Mission volunteers at our Mosaic House by completing maintenance projects, cleaning, and helping us organize the shelter. The UTD International Justice Mission is one of our favorite group of volunteers because they are willing to take time away from their studies in order to better serve the needs of survivors of human rights abuses. Thank you UTD International Justice Mission for all you do and congratulations on being named one of our Volunteers of the Month. We were lucky enough to sit down with this amazing group and find out more about UTD International Justice Mission:
