Golfing for Justice
Celebrate with the Equal Justice Center at Peter Pan Mini-Golf

If there's anything Austinites love more than miniature golf, barbecue, and beer, it'd have to be fair wages. The Equal Justice Center brings together all of the above this Thursday, Oct. 4, for a celebration of its 11th anniversary.
The EJC is made up of 10 lawyers and legal professionals and 33 UT Law students in the Transnational Workers Rights Clinic working to give low-wage workers unprecedented access to the justice center. Together, they have recovered more than $4 million in unpaid wages. To celebrate that victory, and the past 11 years of service, the EJC is throwing a party.
From 6:30 to 8:30pm, pay $25 ($5 for kids or $10 for students) for a round of golf at Peter Pan Mini-Golf (207 Barton Springs Rd.) and a plate of food from the elusive Franklin Barbecue. For an additional $5, get a bottomless cup of beer, provided by Live Oak Brewery and Whip-In.
If you're unable to attend but still wish to contribute to the cause, you can make a donation via the EJC website.
