  • Description

    Bet Tzedek’s Holocaust Survivors Justice Network (HSJN) is a team of roughly 1,000 attorneys nationwide who offer pro bono legal assistance to help Survivors access much needed (but hard to get) reparations from the German government. Since RPF began funding the network, it has helped more than 5,000 survivors secure an estimated $25 million in reparations. This renewal grant will make it possible for HJSN to offer reparations assistance to an estimated 250 survivors per year and expand the network’s capacity to provide additional legal support to survivors, such as advance life planning and preservation of housing rights, which helps prevent homelessness.
