Since 1968, Brooklyn A has provided free legal services for
low-income residents of Brooklyn, pursuing neighborhood-based
mission of justice, empowerment and community development. For over
half a century, we have utilized an array of legal and advocacy
strategies—community organizing, affirmative civil rights
litigation, and eviction defense to defend the rights of
individuals and families. Collaboration with the city, state, and
federal officials to enforce housing laws and develop legislative
solutions is also an integral part of our strategy. Brooklyn
A has three core programs—Preserving Affordable Housing (PAH)
Program, Consumer & Economic Advocacy (CEA) Program, and
Community & Economic Development (CED) Program—each of which
has unique initiatives and plays a vital community role to ensure
basic needs are met and fundamental rights affirmed.
