A worldview is a framework of ideas, attitudes, and assumptions that shape the way we understand events and make sense of the world around us. Join our three core Political Education workshops and help us create the world we all want by shifting to a progressive worldview.

The Less Is More Act has been signed!

STATEMENT: “We applaud Governor Kathy Hochul and Lt. Governor Benjamin for signing the Less is More Act and taking an important step toward reducing the number of incarcerated people at Rikers Island amidst a humanitarian crisis. While this bill doesn’t solve the horrors of Rikers Island, it is a necessary step towards decarcerating Rikers and jails across New York State.”

Join the Movement for Justice!

Citizen Action of New York is a statewide grassroots membership organization taking on big issues that are at the center of transforming society—issues that will achieve social, racial, economic and environmental justice in our communities.
