CUNY School of Law Foundation – CLEAR project

Grant Type: General Support

Duration: January 1, 2018 – December 31, 2018

Organization Overview:

The Creating Law Enforcement Accountability & Responsibility (CLEAR) project is housed at Main Street Legal Services, the clinical arm of CUNY School of Law. CLEAR provides a unique combination of direct legal services, community organizing support, rights-awareness programming, legal expertise, and capacity building aimed at serving American Muslim communities.

Request Overview:

A Pillars general support grant would support the salary of CLEAR’s staff attorneys and to supplement a grant toward the hiring of a part-time development professional. This will help the project maintain and augment its current capacity to manage the increasing volume of cases and advocacy work to protect the civil liberties and human rights of Muslim, Arab, South Asian, and other groups in New York City and beyond.

Year founded: 2009

Location: New York, NY
