We represent individuals and groups of persons who have experienced illegal discrimination on account of these histories,litigating in state and federal courts and in administrative fora,and engage in legislative and policy advocacy (alone and in coalition with groups across the state) to bring about systemic change. We also provide direct services to more than 700 low-income New yorkers each year through our next door project,obtaining, correcting mistakes in and closely reviewing official criminal record "rap sheets".
