In 2010, Make the Road New York (MRNY) won vital policy reforms at the city level and for the first time, brought our powerful combination of organizing and strategic policy advocacy to state and national struggles for immigration reform, worker’s rights, and education justice.
We launched the Make the Road Action Fund, an independent 501 c4 organization, and by the end of the year, built its membership to more than 1600, leveraging our capacity to influence public policy.
And, we engaged our low-income membership in making our organization more financially sustainable by launching several highly effective new grassroots revenue generation strategies.
We thank our supporters, our allies and our 9000+ individual and small business members for their commitment to winning dignity and justice for New York’s Latino and working class communities.
