Make the Road New York (MRNY) is the largest participatory immigrant organization in New York, with more than 14,000 members. With vibrant community centers in Bushwick, Brooklyn; Jackson Heights, Queens; Port Richmond, Staten Island; and Brentwood, Long Island, MRNY gives voice to thousands of immigrants and working class New Yorkers through community organizing, educates tomorrow's leaders and provides services to support families.
New York Communities for Change (NYCC) is a coalition of working families in low and moderate income communities fighting for social and economic justice throughout New York State. By using direct action, legislative advocacy, and community organizing, NYCC members work to impact the political and economic policies that directly affect us. Through neighborhood chapters and issue-based committees, NYCC works to ensure that every family throughout New York has access to quality schools, affordable housing, and good jobs.
