Lawyers Alliance provides legal assistance and information to strengthen nonprofits that are providing critical human and social services throughout New York City during this unusual time. We seek to help organizations whose operations are being impacted by the coronavirus as well as those who are participating in the preparation and response efforts.
We will be updating and supplementing this webpage as the coronavirus situation evolves and is better understood in order to help the nonprofit sector and those it serves.
