On July 20, NYLPI celebrated the 2022 Felix A. Fishman Awards for Extraordinary Advocacy through a highly-attended outdoor ceremony at City Winery the first in-person ceremony in two years. Established in 2003, the Felix A. Fishman Awards are given by NYLPI every year to recognize the work of community lawyers and advocates who demonstrate a commitment to expanding access to justice.

This year NYLPI proudly honored Raya Salter, Esq., founder of the Energy Justice Law and Policy Center; and the Queer Detainee Empowerment Project, an organization that assists LGBTQIA+ folks coming out of immigration detention and those crossing the Mexico/US border. NYLPI was proud to honor Raya and QDEP for their work fighting for equity and justice.
