About Make the Road New York (MRNY):
Our mission is to build the power of working and immigrant communities to win dignity and justice. We are the largest immigrant base-building group in New York, with over 23,000 members in New York City and surrounding suburbs. We organize from storefront centers in the low-income immigrant communities of Bushwick, Brooklyn; Jackson Heights, Queens; Port Richmond, Staten Island; Brentwood, Long Island; and White Plains, Westchester County.
Over the past 20 years, we have become citywide leaders in expanding opportunity for low-income immigrants. Our non-partisan civic engagement efforts have resulted in significant increases in voter turnout in immigrant neighborhoods and we have been asked to work on national projects to create model civic engagement operations that reach low-income communities.
