NEW: We all deserve homes where we can thrive…

  • Natalia Aristizabal Betancur Deputy Director

This is how you take over the New York State Capitol!

Watch our powerful *NEW* video featuring our members’ voices calling for respect and dignity for immigrant and working class New Yorkers.

On January 30th, our members held their annual Democracy Day to call on Gov. Hochul and legislative leaders to prioritize New Yorkers freedom to stay in their homes and the freedom to thrive in the state.

While working-class communities struggle to stay afloat, real estate tycoons use people’s homes as ATMs and squeeze as much money out as possible–raising rents, ripping apart neighborhoods, and avoiding paying what they owe in taxes.

Our new video highlights the importance of legislators to advance our Freedom to Stay and Freedom to Thrive platform. Check it out now!

This year, our members’ priorities include housing solutions such as statewide Good Cause eviction protections and the Housing Access Voucher Program, raising taxes on the wealthiest New Yorkers to invest in our New York, expanding health care access to all immigrants through Coverage for All, and increasing access to unemployment through the Unemployment Bridge Program.

It’s time for Albany to prioritize affordable safe housing and investment in immigrant and working class communities.

¡Sí se puede!
