Make the Road New York (www.maketheroadny.org) is a membership-based, community organization with offices in Bushwick, Brooklyn, Jackson Heights, Queens, and Port Richmond, Staten Island. We promote economic justice, equity and opportunity for all New Yorkers through community and electoral organizing, strategic policy advocacy, leadership development, youth and adult education, and high quality legal and support services.
Make the Road New York was created in 2007 by the coming together of Make the Road by Walking and the Latin American Integration Center, two successful and deeply rooted community based organizations. Make the Road New York is an effort to get to scale and build power for New York City's low-income and immigrant majority. We will build on our proven successes to create a new citywide organization that combines:
• democratic accountability to low-income people, • an innovative mix of strategies to confront inequality and economic injustice, and • deep and active community roots.
