Reflecting On Modern Family Law’s Recent Community Event With Texas Managing Attorney Jasmine Bhatt
Modern Family Law recently stepped into the role of community cultivator as it sponsored an engaging pop-up event in Austin, TX, brought by UrbGarden, a local nonprofit organization, and Amirah Islam. UrbGarden has carved out a niche in the heart of Austin, teaching the art of urban gardening to those in compact city spaces. With a mission centered around sustainability and food justice, they equip city residents with the tools to grow fresh produce, tackling food scarcity one garden at a time.
Amirah is a dedicated member of a women-of-color collective in Austin, and passionately contributes to the community by utilizing her culinary skills, after winning Top Chef Amateurs, by preparing monthly warm meals for the ATX Free Fridge Project. Central Texas has a higher percentage of food-insecure households than most of the country. ATX Free Fridge Project exists to combat food insecurity and food waste in Austin through 24/7 freely available fridges in neighborhoods throughout the city. All the profits from the pop-up dinner were placed towards making warm meals for the ATX Free Fridge Project. With the money raised during this pop-up event, 1200 meals were provided for the community.
This vision of empowerment and support echoes the compassionate approach of Modern Family Law, which offers legal assistance with a deep understanding of cultural complexities and a commitment to community welfare.
The event was not just a sponsorship but a demonstration of shared values and mutual respect for community development and self-sufficiency. To shed more light on this fruitful partnership and the recent event’s impact, Modern Family Law’s Marketing Director, Kirill Kniazev, sat down with Jasmine Bhatt, the firm’s Texas Managing Attorney. In an insightful interview, they discuss the synergies between providing legal services and supporting urban agriculture initiatives. The conversation highlights how both organizations are sowing seeds of positive change in the community—Modern Family Law through legal aid and UrbGarden through green thumbs.
