About Us

The New York Center For Law and Justice seeks to improve the lives of indigent, deaf and hard of hearing New Yorkers by representing individual deaf and hard of hearing clients in a range of civil matters, pursuing policy and practice changes within New York City institutions and raising awareness around deaf and hard of hearing causes and issues.

The Center is the only legal services organization in the world, according to the World Federation of the Deaf, with a full-time staff dedicated to representing deaf and hard of hearing individuals. The Center firmly believes in a three-prong approach to advocating for deaf and hard of hearing individuals’ rights — individually, institutionally and societally.

The New York Center For Law and Justice ultimately hopes to foster a culture shift within New York City in how individuals, institutions, organizations and the public understand and communicate with deaf and hard of hearing New Yorkers.

Lastly, the Center is inspired by both American and Jewish values that call upon us to advance justice.
