Our Focus

We fight for a stronger safety net.

In New York City, safety net programs are maligned, mismanaged, and chronically underfunded.

We think society can do better.

The Safety Net Project fuses direct legal representation with litigation, research, and policy advocacy to strengthen the safety net.

Whether at a legal clinic, in the courtroom, or on the streets, we fight for economic justice whenever vulnerable New Yorkers are denied life's essential needs.
