Why does E4F have a Rapid Response Legal Fund ?
Since 2016, Equality for Flatbush has been working with TRUSTED private attorneys to provide free to low cost legal services to Brooklyn tenants, homeowners, small businesses and residents impacted by police violence. In 2017 we launched The E4F Rapid Response Legal Fund to pay for the legal research, court costs, and legal fees required to hold more greedy landlords, developers and the NYPD accountable and stop the violence caused by gentrification. Here are some of the reasons why we do this work:
With the rise of both gentrification and police violence in Brooklyn, many tenants, homeowners, small business owners and people impacted by police violence have fallen prey to predatory lawyers and/or legal scams. Countless New Yorkers have paid thousands of dollars to attorneys "who did not fight for them". Countless of New Yorkers have been displaced, left behind bars or without justice for their loved ones as result of poor legal services. This is why in 2018, E4F created a DO NOT CALL LAWYER list to warn people against private lawyers known to have harmed community members.

There are no free legal services in NYC for litigation for small business owners. Currently there are free legal services to help you maintain your commercial lease but if your landlord takes you court or refuses to renew your lease, small businesses owners have to come up with the money to pay for an attorney to represent them in court . E4F is one of the only grassroots groups who have represented small business owners for free in Brooklyn Civil Court.

While there are several reputable legal non-profits who provide free legal services particularly to rent-stabilized tenants in NYC, there is no guarantee that they will take your case or that you will be assigned a lawyer who will actually fight for you. Tenants who live in private houses or small buildings, homeowners and small businesses owners typically must pay for a private attorney or navigate the court system on their own. Equality for Flatbush only partners with small legal non-profit organizations and private lawyers that we trust to be relentless in their legal representation .

Again , for all these reasons and more we need your help to reach our goal of making it to the $7000 mark by January 22nd so we can continue to fight displacement and police violence in Brooklyn : Please GIVE TODAY https://www.gofundme.com/e4f-rapid-response-legal-fund-2018
