The results of the presidential election sent shockwaves to LGBTQ, HIV-affected, immigrant, and other communities throughout New York City. As a response to the election, a coalition of New York City non-profits, advocacy organizations and direct service organizations has come together to offer free legal clinics. These clinics will provide brief legal advice, referrals or representation. Issues that can be addressed include legal name change, identification document change (passport, etc.), immigration, advance directives, wills, family law, intimate partner violence, legal support for survivors of hate violence.
Walk-ins are welcome, but those who register will be ensured an interview and will be provided with a translator, if requested. Registration at bit.ly/LGBTQLegalClinic. All information will be kept strictly confidential and in the custody of attorneys and clinic staff. If you have questions, want AVP to schedule a clinic at your organization or if you are an attorney and would like to volunteer, please email Jessie Pimentel at jpimentel [at] avp.org.
