East Harlem Community Advocate Joins NCLEJ’s Board of Directors

Congratulations to Ray Lopez, Interim Director of Programs and Director of Environmental Health Services at LSA Family Health Service, who was elected on March 3, 2017, to NCLEJ’s Board of Directors. As a pioneering community advocate for families in East Harlem, Ray continues to play an instrumental role in implementing the mandates of the Baez v. NYCHA court settlement obtained by NCLEJ on behalf of low-income people with asthma who live in public housing that is contaminated by toxic mold.

Marc Cohan, NCLEJ’s Executive Director, said, “We could not be more excited – Ray is an amazing advocate and will bring energy, enthusiasm, talent, and great spirit to our Board.”
