Protesters at city hall with the words "Asthma Free" behind a speaker

NYLPI joined Councilmember Rosie Mendez along with our partners in the Coalition for Asthma Free Homes at a press conference on Monday, October 24, 2016 in front of a residential building in the East Village that has been plagued by mold. The Coalition is advocating for the passage of the Asthma Free Housing Act (Intro 385B). Senior Staff Attorney Christine Appah-Gyamfi of the Environmental Justice Program represented NYLPI and delivered remarks in support of the bill, along with tenants suffering from unhealthy housing conditions, advocates, doctors, and members of other Coalition groups.
