TFSS acknowledges this extraordinary achievement, in the face of very tough odds, by our chair and pro bono counsel Rene Kathawala.
"We are obviously very pleased that the Court validated the very serious safety and health concerns that we had about the proposed construction next to PS 163," said Kathawala. His work to ensure a safe learning environment for all of the children at PS 163 is an act of social justice that every New Yorker can be proud of.
The work doesn't stop here, though. We will continue to fight for the protection of all NYC school children in the legislative arena. Intro 420 is a bill that would place strict limits on the noise impact on students in their classrooms. The bill is quickly picking up momentum and has garnered 25 co-sponsors in the City Council. Please join our our effort to ensure passage as part of the Coalition of Safe Schools in NYC.
