Damon Gilbert, New York University School of Law 2024, will be hosted by New York Lawyers for the Public Interest for his Equal Justice Works Design-Your-Own Fellowship, which will focus on Environmental Justice.

Damon plans to advocate for people incarcerated or detained in New York State to redress systemic environmental injustices in carceral settings through impact litigation, expansion of NYLPI’s Medical Legal Partnership, and the creation of a new network of nonprofit and private lawyers and community organizers, advocates, and organizations.

“Having seen first-hand the effects that the over burdening of environmental hazards can have on a community, I am excited to work with NYPLI to combat environmental racism and establish safer living standards for all people in New York.”
