We are deeply saddened to announce the death of our dear friend and beloved colleague, John Wright.
A tireless advocate for his fellow New Yorkers, John inspired us with his compassion and steadfast dedication to lifting up the nonprofit sector and working to ensure equity in all of New York’s communities. A celebration of John’s life will be held in the coming days, and we will share those details here. Until then, we ask that you keep John, his family, and John’s many cherished friends in your thoughts and prayers. Visit John Wright Memorial

“After helping to pass ‘Raise the Age’ legislation at the state level last year, we focused much of this year on fighting to ensure the legislation was implemented in the intended spirit here in New York City. Safe Passage Project joined us as a new client this year; they provide free legal services to unaccompanied minors who are facing deportation. This new client has provided us the opportunity to be directly responsive to changes in implementation of federal law thta impact the most vulnerable New Yorkers: kids who are asked to face the court system alone.”
