The honorees were recognized for their leadership and dedication to advocating for the rights of New Yorkers with disabilities and working to create a sustainable, environmentally just city.

The Felix A. Fishman Awards are given by NYLPI every year to recognize the work of community lawyers and advocates who demonstrate a commitment to expanding access to justice. The Henry & Lucy Moses Fund endowed these awards in honor of Felix A. Fishman, a former trustee and director who committed his life to using the law to help others. A talented trusts and estates lawyer whose work was guided by an unerring moral compass, Felix A. Fishman was a staunch believer in progressive ethical ideals and considered the capacity to care for others as the true barometer of a successful lawyer. Established in 2003, the Felix A. Fishman Awards have recognized 31 honorees to date and will continue to honor those who serve the needs of their communities.
