New York, NY – As elected officials representing diverse communities across New York, we stand in deep solidarity with these community organizations, which are at the front lines of the fight for respect and dignity for all New Yorkers. We are joined by Assembly Members Nily Rozic, Richard Gottfried, and Tremaine Wright.
Every day, these organizations undertake the most pressing work in our democracy—fighting for the rights of working-class New Yorkers, immigrants, and people of color.
Their members and staff work tirelessly to safeguard immigrant families from deportation, help tenants stand up to unscrupulous landlords and stay in their homes, ensure that workers are paid a living wage, to fight for all New Yorkers to have access to quality health care and fully-funded public schools, and more.
At a time when the Trump administration has declared war on our communities, it’s more critical than ever that organizations like Citizen Action of New York, Community Voices Heard Power, Make the Road Action, and New York Communities for Change be allowed—and indeed, encouraged—to continue their indispensable work.
We are committed to standing strong with these incredible organizations.
