Our Justice Agenda 2024

At Citizen Action of New York, we envision a world where every person’s basic needs are met—and we have an agenda to build it. Our movement for justice continues in 2024. 

Public Money is Our Money

The money we all pay in taxes is public money. We should be putting more of it into things like daycare, low-cost high-quality housing & health care so that costs aren’t so out of reach for our neighbors. Join us in demanding a just economy that works for all of us!

End Medical Debt

New York’s non-profit hospitals sued over 53,000 patients over medical debt between 2015 and 2020. It’s time to protect patients and put an end to the hospital industry’s aggressive billing practice. We call on state lawmakers to protect our right to financial assistance by passing the Ounce of Prevention Law.

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.

Join our movement for justice

Over the last 40 years, Citizen action of New York has driven progressive change in New York State, standing at the forefront of the ongoing fights for racial, social, economic, and environmental justice.

From housing justice to health equity, universal childcare to ending mass incarceration, we’re building power in the grassroots and communities, to organize and agitate for radical and transformative change. Now more than ever, New Yorkers deserve better and we’re demanding more.
