MFY Article: Pillsbury Winthrop and MFY Hold Legal Clinics to Assist Aged and Disabled New Yorkers in Obtaining Access-a-Ride Services

The latest edition of New York City Voices features the pro bono project that MFY Legal Services has launched with Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman LLP to help seniors and people with disabilities obtain and maintain eligibility for Access-A-Ride Services (AAR).  AAR is an accessible transportation system operated by the Metropolitan Transit Authority for people who cannot use subways and buses due to their disabilities.  MFY and Pillsbury will be holding a series of clinics at independent living centers, senior centers, and other community locations where people can get help in filling out AAR applications, appealing denials or suspensions of AAR services, or filing complaints.  The next clinic is at the Brooklyn Center for Independence of the Disabled on January 31, 2013 from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
