Moises Jimenez et al v NYC Dept of Education: Preliminary Settlement Agreement

Community Justice, Environmental Justice, Health Justice, L.P. v. NYC Dept of Education, News, Sports Equity

Students and NYLPI staff hold up signs for sports equity on the steps of a courthouse.

Starting fall 2022, thousands of Black and Latinx New York City public high school students will have the opportunity to participate in afterschool sports for the first time, thanks to a preliminary settlement agreement reached by New York Lawyers for the Public Interest (NYLPI), the New York City Department of Education (DOE), and the Public Schools Athletic League (PSAL) in a class-action race discrimination lawsuit.

Lead plaintiff Moises Jimenez said, “Being part of this lawsuit means the world to me. This settlement is going to provide sports in different areas to make sure that students enjoy their childhood—because you only grow up once. I’m proud and glad to say that I went through hell and back throughout high school to voice myself out for the others, and it paid off. ‘If you want to lead, be the voice people like you need to hear.’ This quote means everything to me because you need to be the one that starts the spark so others can follow.”
