Our Recent Impact

VICTORY! The Supreme Court rules that the Trump administration did not have the authority to end DACA! 

DACA recipients from across our organization have led this fight alongside partners from across the country and the Home is Here coalition. Our lawyers poured their souls into this case and into the thousands of DACA renewals that they have filed as the program hung in the balance.

DACA recipients and their families are breathing a sigh of relief today. This program provides protection to more than 700,000 young people in this country, and enables them to work, study and pursue their dreams.

VICTORY! New Yorkers win police accountability and transparency reforms!

On the week of June 8th, after nearly 6 years of organizing efforts by Make the Road NY members, and our coalition Communities United for Police Reform, a package of three bills called the Safer NY Act passed.

The package will help address the systemic lack of police accountability and increase transparency. After years of organizing, led by young people and alongside families of New Yorkers who have been killed by police, we succeeded to #Repeal50A, pass the #STATAct and the #SpecialProsecutor bill.
