Citizen Action of New York has been a great leader in the fights to strengthen our democracy, for safe and secure housing, to ending mass incarceration, to expanding health care, and for a fair and equal society for all. Because of their work, New Yorkers are closer to a world of social, racial, economic, and environmental justice.
