The Project

NYLAG created the Storm Response Unit to deal holistically will all legal problems that follow the survivors of Super Storm Sandy. As an Equal Justice Works AmeriCorp Legal Fellow in the storm response Unit, I help the victims of Super Storm Sandy to reclaim their lives by helping to solve any legal issue they have that has been created as a result of the storm. This means my days are always filled with different types of law from administrative FEMA appeals to housing disputes. Now that the Storm Response Unit has been practicing disaster law for nearly a year, we are spreading our experience to other non-profits in disaster areas, and conduct trainings when disaster strike.
