123 William Street
New York, NY 10038

The Urban Justice Center provides legal representation and advocacy to poor and homeless New Yorkers. The purpose of our work is to effect social change in the areas of civil and human rights, with a particular emphasis on systemic advocacy and litigation.

We defend the rights of people who are often overlooked or turned away by other organizations, including the homeless; the mentally ill; domestic violence survivors; lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender youth; people suffering human rights abuses caused by U.S. social welfare policies; grassroots community groups; sex workers; and street vendors.
