District Leader Jenifer Rajkumar has coordinated a free legal advice clinic as a benefit to the Lower East Side community at large. For those seeking help and consultation in the specific areas of housing and/or employment law, lawyers from MFY Legal Services will provide residents with pro bono guidance on a first come, first served basis.
The event may be coming at an apt time for increased visibility, given that Rajkumar is the incumbent for this year’s district leader election; she’ll face off against Community Board 3 Chair (and Margaret Chin pet) Gigi Li for the seat. But politics aside, with the neighborhood’s rapid real estate expansion, along with subsequent tenant rights issues and small business turmoil, the session will in all likelihood be a useful resource for these ongoing matters.
The clinic is tomorrow, June 24, from 6pm to 8pm, at the University Settlement Neighborhood Center at 189 Allen Street (btwn Stanton and East Houston). See the bilingual announcements below…
