CUNY: Economic Justice
Students in the Economic Justice Project provide direct representation to hundreds of CUNY undergraduates fighting to keep their public assistance benefits and to advance their right to pursue college educations. From its inception, the EJP has worked in close collaboration with the Welfare Rights Initiative, a grass-roots community organization based at Hunter College. WRI and the EJP have engaged together in a broad array of advocacy, educational, and social change activity that includes individual representation permitting over 1,500 CUNY students to remain in school, organizing, public education, and legislative advocacy that recently yielded progressive reforms to state and local welfare laws.
