MRNY works to guarantee
equal rights, access, and

Yorkers with limited
English proficiency. We have:
Improved disease prevention,
early detection, and nutrition for
20,000+ community members
through direct benefits and
health insurance enrollment, HIV
testing, and health education.
Secured the right to translation
and interpretation services at
all NYC public benefits offices;
major public and private
hospitals statewide; major chain
pharmacies statewide; and
City, State, and Suffolk County
Since the November NYC elections, MRNY members have been hard at work setting the agenda for our next mayor, City Council and citywide elected officials.
We kicked off "Talking Transition" with a low-wage worker forum and our attorneys have been staffing a Single Stop clinic around the clock at the Transition tent.
Recently, our youth joined the Transitions conversation to bring education and police reform issues into the spotlight for the new elected officials. 17-year-old youth leader Cheyanne Smith was also profiled in the New York Times for her leadership to make NYC schools more respectful, safe, and dignified places for learning.
