Summary
Examines three examples of legal assistance to low-income communities in the New York area. The Brownsville Family Health Care Center was established in a poor area of Brooklyn after Paul J. Acinapura, of Brooklyn Legal Services Corporation A, found a way to fund it. Eddie Bautista and Sam Sue, of New York Lawyers for the Public Interest, provided assistance to various communities in Brooklyn to stop the building of environmentally hazardous projects in poor neighborhoods, based on the "fair share" provision of the New York City charter. In Hempstead, Long Island, Jennifer Gordon, founder and executive director of the Workplace Project, and Omar Hendriquez, a labor organizer, helped immigrant workers and got labor laws enforced
