February 14, 2017

VOLS applauds Mayor Bill de Blasio's and City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito's recent announcement to commit to providing lawyers to represent tenants in Housing Court whose incomes are below 200 percent of the Federal Poverty Level.  This is welcome, wonderful news in difficult times.  We congratulate the Right to Counsel Coalition and everyone who has been involved for years in this important effort to achieve justice for all in New York City Housing Court.
