Civil Disturbances: Battles for Justice in New York City



This Collection contains a number of essays that are a part of Civil Disturbances, a collaborative project between artists and lawyers that commemorates various public interest law suits and social justice efforts in New York City. The project itself consists of twenty signs, each representing one specific case, that were designed to be both provoking and informative. This specific Collection contains printings of eight of the signs, as well as separate writings on issues and cases including: disabled people\u27s accessibility to the Empire State Building, child welfare, children\u27s rights, women and the FDNY, rights of the homeless, and welfare benefits. Each essay presents a unique look at a specific social justice problem in New York, the case it was associated with, and sometimes a look at the accompanying sign as part of the project

Topics: social justice, welfare, poverty, women\u27s rights, art, children\u27s rights, Law, Social Welfare Law
