Our Recent Impact

Immigration relief for half a million undocumented people!

This victory was the direct result of our communities’ years of unrelenting pressure on the Biden Administration, holding them accountable to passing critical immigration reform.

Ultimately, the power of our movement made this possible – thank you to our members, organizers, supporters, and allies for fighting for and alongside immigrant communities.

We will keep fighting to achieve a permanent pathway to citizenship for all immigrants!


Temporary Protected Status (TPS): Venezuela

The Biden Administration announced the extension of Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for Venezuelan TPS holders and the re-designation of TPS for new Venezuelan applicants who arrived in the United States before July 31, 2023. The Federal Register notice has been published.

TPS is a temporary, renewable program for people in the United States who are unable to safely return to their country.


A New Home of Strength & Dignity

Make the Road New York is building a permanent home in Queens, NY. This 3-story, 24,000 sq foot landmark community center will more than double our space for frontline services.

It will be a place of safety and strength that says: We are Here to Stay. Our new home will stand as a statewide beacon of hope and power for current and future generations.

Construction is currently underway and we will open our doors in 2024!

Advocates rally days after Kawaski Trawick case announcement

Demonstrators protested Tuesday evening, days after the NYPD announced they would not discipline the police officers involved in the death of Kawaski Trawick. “Mayor [Eric] Adams should be ashamed of himself as a father and as a Black man for not firing the police who murdered my son,” said organizer Keith Fuller as he read a statement from the Trawick family.
