Please donate to our Legal Expense Fund

The first $1,500 in contributions to our Legal Expense Fund will be matched !

The last, few remaining members of Fight For NYCHA have filed a lawsuit as individuals to stop the unlawful RAD/PACT conversions taking place at NYCHA. The lawsuit, which takes the form of an Article 78 petition, reveals several ways that the City of New York, the Mayor, NYCHA, and the CEO of NYCHA are breaking the laws.

The lawsuit was filed pro se, meaning, we had no attorney represent us in the filing. Because this lawsuit is very complex, we need to hire an attorney. After we were turned-down by nonprofit legal groups, we had no choice but to raise money to hire experienced private legal counsel. As a result, we have set a goal of raising $15,000 from our Go Fund Me campaign to dedicate solely to legal expenses.

A generous donor has come forward to offer to match the first $1,500 in donations to our Legal Expense Fund. No matter the size of your contribution, it will be matched by our Angel Donor up to the first $1,500.

Fighting to save NYCHA is part of the larger struggle for social, legal, and economic justice. Your donation will empower tenants, who are on the front lines of a social movement to keep people from being displaced from public housing and to stop the liquidation of strategic, public assets. Donate to the Fight For NYCHA Legal Expense Fund now.
