Empower Immigrant Communities, Become a Volunteer!
Make the Road NY was born out of a belief in the power that individuals have to transform our communities collectively.
We believe that those most impacted by poverty and injustice must play key roles in devising solutions to community problems, and that community members must be elevated and empowered to effect real change.
At Make the Road NY (MRNY), community members volunteer daily to support our organizing, education, health and legal services programs as well as our admin and operations teams.
Some volunteers make phone calls or help to prepare a meal, others support adult literacy students to develop English skills or pass their citizenship exams, and others still provide key support with administrative work, outreach, community education or civic engagement activities.
Learn how you can support MRNY as a volunteer by filling out this form.
Aliadxs is a decentralized network of allies committed to using their skills, privilege, and resources to support Make the Road’s members. Created during the initial months following the election of Trump– with the rise of racist, xenophobic and misogynistic politics– the Aliadxs network aims to connect New Yorkers seeking organizing opportunities with campaigns and strategies led by those most directly impacted.
