Senator Elizabeth Warren urges support for the David Abraham Grossman Fund for Social Justice at Harvard Law School
On Saturday, September 10, family, friends, and colleagues of the late Harvard Law School Clinical Professor David Grossman gathered at HLS to celebrate his life, honor his community activism, and support his fight for social justice.
Grossman, who passed away in 2015 after a long battle with cancer, was a passionate and tireless advocate for underprivileged and marginalized people in Boston and beyond, particularly those being displaced from their homes through foreclosure.
An expert in housing law, he dedicated his career to fighting on behalf of struggling tenants, homeowners, and communities. As the managing attorney of the Housing Unit at the Legal Services Center of Harvard Law School and later as the faculty director and managing attorney of the Harvard Legal Aid Bureau, Grossman fought for the rights of Bostonians in need, while mentoring and inspiring hundreds of law students at Harvard Law School to do the same.
