NYLS Honors Martin Luther King Jr. Day With Service Project

In tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Dean Anthony W. Crowell joined NYLS students, faculty, and staff as they volunteered at the Ronald McDonald House New York on Monday, January 15.

Two NYLS groups cleaned rooms and kitchens used by the families of children undergoing cancer treatment at nearby hospitals. Since 1978, Ronald McDonald House New York has provided more than 35,000 families with affordable lodging and support programs while their children battle cancer.

Each year, the NYLS community organizes a service project on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, with student organizations supporting the effort.

This year’s event was co-sponsored by the Black Law Students Association, the Center for Real Estate Studies, the Immigration Law Students Association, the Impact Center for Public Interest Law, the Military Justice and Veterans Association, the Muslim Law Students Association, the Office of Diversity and Inclusion, and OutLaws.

Special thanks to Veronica Rose 3L, Senior Director for Public Service and Pro Bono Initiatives Swati Parikh, and Assistant Dean for Academic Programs Erin Bond for helping to organize the day.
