Adrien A. Weibgen is a staff attorney at the Community Development Project of the Urban Justice Center. Adrien represents community groups around issues related to land use, development, and neighborhood change, helping to ensure that long-time, low-income residents have a say in the future of their neighborhoods.

Adrien has over a decade of experience in racial justice advocacy. A graduate of Yale Law School, Adrien's previous employers include the American Civil Liberties Union Racial Justice Program and the Center for Social Inclusion.

In the wake of Hurricane Sandy, Adrien co-founded one of the largest grassroots relief efforts in Coney Island, which coordinated hundreds of volunteers to canvass high-rise buildings and respond to the needs of elderly and disabled people trapped inside. Upon returning to Yale, Adrien conducted research on a landmark case that established that the City of New York's emergency plans violated the Americans with Disabilities Act. Adrien's Note on the case, The Right to Be Rescued: Disability Justice in an Age of Disaster, was published in the Yale Law Journal in 2015.
