TO THE EDITOR:
This past summer, I had the opportunity to work at the UNC Center for Civil Rights alongside Attorney Fellow Allen Buansi, who quickly became a mentor to me as an aspiring civil rights lawyer.
From the very beginning, Allen’s unwavering commitment to justice was clear.
He was always one of the first people into the office and one of the last to leave. His list of tasks was long, but his patience was high. He traveled all across the state working for and with some of the most disenfranchised members of our state.
It was clear that his job was so much more than a job, and his clients were so much more than clients.
