LAS Criminal Defense Practice Offers Expertise to Staten Island Community

The Legal Aid Society joined Univision 41 at an event on Staten Island this week to connect people seeking answers and legal assistance. Hosted by La Colmena, a community-based organization working to empower day laborers, domestic workers, and other low-wage immigrant workers, people came voicing their concerns on issues such as disability benefits, housing, immigration, and local policing.

Our team, Marlene Vasquez, Valeria Villa and Carlo Concha-zea, welcomed the opportunity to help. Taking Root Justice, Mexican Consulate, Latino Justice, and the NYC Fire Department also joined in the community event.
