    2017 Video: 40 Years of Social Justice


    Our 2017 Law & Society video profiles our efforts to join with our clients, community organizations and the private bar to fight for access to healthcare and transportation for all New Yorkers. We are proud to be able to work alongside our partners in making equal justice a reality for everyone in our city.
