Tomorrow, Saturday, January 11th at 11:30 AM, New York State Attorney General Letitia James will announce a new initiative led by her office, called the “Protect Our Homes” initiative, which will kick off a day of action.

The event will start at the Bedford-Stuyvesant Restoration Plaza Lower Level 1368 Fulton Street Brooklyn, starting at 11:30 AM. A number of New York elected officials will also be present.

Following the announcement, AG James and volunteers will go door-to-door in at-risk neighborhoods to raise awareness about deed theft in New York.
