Justice is Essential
New York City is facing compounding crises. A pandemic, a national reckoning over racial justice, looming mass evictions: all of these and more have upended life for New Yorkers across the city, putting the health of everyone at risk. Now, as we have always done in times of crisis, we are fighting to keep our city safe. Our staff are working tirelessly to defend the rights of clients and communities in danger. See what we have already done to protect those in need, and learn more about how you can help us today.
Meet Our Staff
Over the next few weeks, we will be sharing the incredible stories of our organization’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic crisis and our ongoing efforts to promote access to justice. 2020 has been a difficult year for many, but our 2,000 staff members have stepped up to meet the new challenges our city faces, working across all five boroughs to connect our clients to the services they need.
We’re pushing the city to invest in the things that build strong and stable communities.
