Citizen Action of New York
Citizen Action of New York is a grassroots membership organization taking on big issues that are at the center of transforming society. We look for opportunities to accomplish big changes – not small, incremental reforms. Our issue agenda is rooted in our mission to fight for economic fairness, racial justice and democracy. We work to elect progressive candidates to office who are committed to our issues. Our power comes from the grassroots: people coming together to push the edge of the possible. Citizen Action has seven chapters and affiliates in major cities across New York State. Each is a vibrant local organization with local leadership, organizing staff, a local agenda and an active, diverse membership. Each has developed a strategy and program to meet the challenges that most affect their region while sharing overall goals and a statewide program. Citizen Action is proud to be affiliated with People’s Action, a national federation of state-based organizations.
