What We Do

Uncovering a deadly nursing home cover-up

GJC obtained a court order compelling the Cuomo Department of Health to disclose to Empire Center data on Covid nursing home deaths that had been kept from the public to hide underreported fatalities.

Defending a rape survivor’s right to free speech

In a blatant misuse of political power, New York’s Joint Commission on Public Ethics (JCOPE), which is tasked with regulating lobbying in New York, went after Kat Sullivan—a rape survivor who was pushing for the passage of the Child Victims Act.

Challenging Nassau County’s Secret Assessments

Like many others in Nassau County, Diane Eckel grieves her real property assessments. The stakes are high. Taxpayers can save tens of thousands of dollars in successful challenges. But knowing how the County determines values is critical to making a challenge.
