RADIO PRODUCER AND WRITER
The Bronx Defenders is a legal aid organization that represents 35,000 people per year. Attorneys there work long hours, with uncertain schedules, high caseloads, and very little downtime, if any. When I heard that five Staff Attorneys in the Family Practice division had pulled off a system for bringing their lunch from home every day, and have kept it up for nearly a year, I had to find out more. On Monday, I took the 50 minute subway ride from the WNYC office on Varick Street to 149th Street Grand Concourse with Jennifer Hsu, WNYC’s video producer, walked 15 minutes to 161st Street, and met the Lunch Bunch.
