2 Brooklyn teens raise funds to send classmates to mock trial at Harvard

A group of high school students is heading to Massachusetts this weekend and it's all thanks to two of their classmates. 



About 40 students from Brooklyn will be heading to Harvard University today to take part in a mock trial. The learning experience was helped to make happen by Rust and River Fields and the surrounding community. 



The two teens felt it was important to help create opportunities and try to open doors for fellow classmates who might otherwise not get the chance. 



The students will return home from Harvard on Sunday night.
