Lisa Schreibersdorf, Executive Director, Brooklyn Defender Services (BDS) named to City & State's 2023 Nonprofit Power 100 List.

Brooklyn Defenders' Founder and Executive Director Lisa Schreibersdorf was once again included in the City & State Nonprofit Power 100 List which recognizes the leaders of New York’s top social services providers, legal aid organizations, foundations, and more. Congratulations, Lisa!

As noted in this year's entry:

Taking a stand against further bail reform rollbacks was a lonely position in state politics this year, but Lisa Schreibersdorf did what she felt was right. The public defender leader also clamored for more funding in the state budget for staff and new attorneys to handle the COVID-19 backlog of cases after Gov. Kathy Hochul proposed $52 million for district attorneys. In the meantime, Schreibersdorf brought on two law firms to partner with Brooklyn Defender Services in June and provide pro bono services on child welfare cases.
