“I have advocated for the homeless in New York City for the last 40 years – first as a lawyer providing direct services, now as the executive director of the Urban Justice Center. During that time, I have spent thousands of hours in soup kitchens, shelters, tunnels, subways, burned-out buildings, and other places of refuge for those living on the streets. I have also witnessed how six different mayors approached the suffering and injustice of our most marginalized. As Mayor Eric Adams begins his tenure, I believe this history has critical lessons for him.”
