Lawyering for the Homeless

Alexander Law Prize honoree Maria Foscarinis was moved to action by hearing of her family’s treatment during the German occupation of Greece.

Lawyering for the Homeless

This year’s Katharine and George Alexander Law Prize from the School of Law honors the primary architect of a federal law that permits public buildings to be used to assist homeless people.

Maria Foscarinis also founded the National Law Center on Homelessness & Poverty and has been an advocate for homeless rights since 1985. “This work started for me when I was a child, hearing stories of how my family suffered during the German occupation of Greece,” she said. “It created a drive inside me to ensure no one should suffer homelessness or such extreme vulnerability.”

The Alexander Law Prize recognizes top legal advocates who have used their careers to help alleviate injustice and inequity.
