At LSSA’s Community Voices event on June 12th, clients, community leaders, and elected officials called for a fair contract for the advocates who provide critical legal representation to save their homes, ensure quality education for their children, and stabilize their families.
As Staten Island Legal Services client, Mohammad Hassan, explained:
“Without the help of Tyler Somes and Joseph Sant, my family would not have woken up in our Staten Island home this morning. Because of their help, my family went from the brink of homelessness to being able to remain in our home. The foreclosure epidemic has torn communities apart. These advocates deserve a fair contract so they can continue fighting to keep communities intact.”
