The Door Celebrates Its 5th Annual Joining in Justice Fundraiser Event

On April 25th, The Door hosted its 5th Annual, 2018 Joining in Justice fundraiser, an influential event that successfully raised money to support its Legal Services Center, which provides free legal and immigration assistance to more than 1,200 young New Yorkers each year.

The evening honored Elisha Wiesel (Chief Information Officer of Goldman Sachs) and Milbank, Tweed, Hadley & McCloy LLP (accepted by Anthony Perez Cassino, Pro Bono Counsel). Those in attendance also heard a very personal story from Melvin, a young immigrant who arrived here fleeing both domestic and gang violence in his home country of Honduras. With The Door’s support, Melvin now has his green card, works full-time to save money for school, and dreams of one day becoming a commercial pilot. In his own words, “thanks to The Door, now, I can make plans for my future.”
