Dignity, Community, and Power: 2023 New York City Budget and Policy Platform


As the largest community-based membership organization representing immigrants and working-class people of color in New York State, Make the Road New York (MRNY) is uniquely positioned to identify and address pressing community needs. In New York City (NYC), where the largest concentration of our 25,000 members reside, we operate community centers in Brooklyn, Queens, and Staten Island. We employ a multi-faceted approach to supporting immigrants, communities of color, and working-class New Yorkers, providing a full range of legal, educational, and survival services. The communities we serve have been utterly devastated by the COVID-19 pandemic, with staggering loss of life and calamitous economic consequences. They need bold City action to reverse inequities and expand opportunities for all New Yorkers.
