About us

The Urban Justice Center serves New York City's most vulnerable residents through a combination of direct legal service, systemic advocacy, community education and political organizing. Our 10 Projects assist clients on numerous levels, from one-on-one legal advice in soup kitchens, to filing class action lawsuits to bring about systemic change, to pushing social justice legislation forward.

Our 10 Projects are: Safety Net Project (SNP), which serves homeless adults and families through public benefits advocacy and eviction prevention work; Mental Health (MHP), which serves indigent consumers of mental health services; Domestic Violence (DVP), which assists women and children who are victims of domestic violence through primary prevention, early intervention, and system reform; Peter Cicchino Youth (PCYP), which serves homeless and street involved LGBTQQ youth; Human Rights (HRP), which promotes human rights for poor New Yorkers by identifying and publicizing human rights violations resulting from inadequate social welfare policies; Community Development (CDP), which supports the efforts of grassroots groups working to improve conditions in low-income communities in NYC; Street Vendors (SVP), which works on behalf of street vendors through legal education, political organizing, and systemic advocacy; and Sex Workers (SWP), which advocates on an individual and systemic level for sex workers, former sex workers, and those that are profiled or at risk for engaging in sex work; Veterans Advocacy Project (VAP); and Iraqi Refugee Assistance Project (IRAP) which provides probono legal and resettlement assistance to refugees.
