OnCamera: Denise Desiderio Discusses Akin Gump’s Innovative School Funding Work for Tribes

Akin Gump senior policy advisor Denise Desiderio is featured in the latest video in the firm's OnCamera with Akin Gump series, discussing the work that the firm has done with our client the Gila River Indian Community to get new schools built on the reservation.

You'll learn about the innovative approach used to vault bureaucratic hurdles, overcome a 60-year backlog, and obtain federal funding to get state-of-the-art schools built for children who had previously had to study in crowded, dilapidated, 100+-year-old buildings, work that Desiderio calls "one of the highlights of my career."
