BREAKING: WE WON—the New York City Council passed Intro 1572-B (46-2), making it one of the first laws to Affirmatively Further Fair Housing since 1968 (Fair Housing Act)

Churches United For Fair Housing emerged from fighting gentrification & segregation. This legislation is historic!

Thank you to @jumaane.williams, who we discussed this with in its earliest forms and helped us push this through, and Chair @salamancajr80 who co-sponsored this landmark bill!

NYC has never directly addressed race in its Land Use decisions and we believe this will be instrumental in changing that and living up to the federal mandate to Affirmatively Further Fair Housing!

Join us @cuffhaction @degreesnyc and many more on Monday, 6/21 at 5 pm for an important and meaningful Community Conversation around mobilizing our undocumented communities during election cycles.

Topics that will be covered:
- How do we best take care of ourselves during this time? Undocumented organizers are doing the most work!
- How do we best support undocumented people to get paid for this work?
- How do we want to recognize people’s labor?

We welcome people to speak their first language as they engage in conversation.

Racial Impact Study press conference!

Rezonings are about race. 
We are calling on the City of New York to study Racial Impacts by requiring a Racial Disparity Report in the Uniform Land Use Review Procedure (ULURP) process required for rezonings citywide. Including a Racial Disparity Report in this process is the first step in undoing the harm caused by over a century of land use policy rooted first in overt racism and then shielded by color-blind language. Proposed legislation (Intro 1572-A) would force the City to study and disclose how their rezoning plans disparately impact residents along racial lines in neighborhoods across New York City.

Welcome to our two new interns, Jessica & Jessenia (or Jess & Jess). We are ecstatic to have them on our team this summer and you’ll be seeing them and their work soon! Check out their bios below⬇️⬇️⬇️

Jessenia Guapisaca (she/her/ella) was born and raised in Ecuador. Growing up seperated from her family by an unjust and capitalistic immigration system, after she arrived in the U.S, Jessenia became an activist for undocumented immigrants, unaccompanied minors and indigenous visibility. She has served and advocates for her community in different roles in multiple non-profits organizations. She is a new addition to the organizing team at CUFFH, where she will be working on program development for youth and supporting political campaigns for elected officials that align with our values and hold them accountable.

Jessica Yauri (she/her/ella) is currently a first year at Baruch CUNY College who is interested in majoring Business Management. Her passions are in youth development, stock investment, and public speaking.

Some of her strengths include time management, consistency, and working well with others. These strengths show up in the following ways: through her commitment to CUFFH and her love of other nonprofit/ grassroot organizations.

She serves as an active youth member w
She has been able to surround herself with scholars/youth who share her passion for being successful as she enjoys spending countless hours working on networking with them, learning about the journey of their stories, and more. One day, her goal is to utilize her financial literacy to create her own nonprofit that focus on Black and Brown girls and transgender to be College ready.

Welcome Jess & Jess!!

“Esto no es un juego”
DAY 2: Hunger Strike for #FundExcludedWorkers!

We were honored to have such a powerful healing space during our Altar Workshop;

An altar in our space creates visibility by honoring ancestors and the longevity of our work towards liberation. It is an acknowledgment of the long timeline of resistance and hope that our legacies have maintained. By setting up the altar, we can shape our space to see ourselves, including those who guide our way. We welcome the power and love of many warriors, creators, and healers who help us. To build an altar, we can think about all our senses and how to attribute different senses and how to involve them. What does it smell like to lift us, center us, and calm us down? What food can we offer?

Father Rev. Vitaglione serves immigrant communities every day. His congregation has been devastated by COVID, but the exclusion of relief is an added cruelty.

Exclusion is a policy failure. @CarlHeastie & @AndreaSCousins: end exclusion, #FundExcludedWorkers!

Español abajó 👇 ,

Excluded workers are the 1.2+ million essential labor force that were left out of all stimulus and unemployment relief.

They paid into the social safety net, but can't access a cent.

There is a solution: Albany must pass A5421 & S4543 - #FundExcludedWorkers Act.

To learn more, follow: @FEWCoalition

-Español

¡Somos una coalición de más de 100 organizaciones que luchan por 1,2 millones de trabajadorxs excluidxs en Nueva York, y por un mundo sin billionarios!

Albany debe cobrar impuestos a los multimillonarios para #InvestInOurNY y #FundExcludedWorkers.

Donate to CUFFH’s Turkey Fried Mission!

This year, the number of NYC families who will be left without food on Thanksgiving is staggering. COVID-19 has deeply exacerbated the housing and economic crises in NYC, and our communities have gone more than 7 months without any real relief.

Will you help us feed 1000 families? $25 feeds one family.

On November 7, 2020 thousands of New Yorkers joined members of the Protect the Results: New York City Coalition, a group formed by over 90 local community organizations at Columbus Circle for the March to Protect The Results, taking the streets of Manhattan to celebrate the Biden-Harris ticket victory after winning the majority of the Electoral College votes. #2020Election #Activism #banner #BidenHarris #CountEveryVote #DefendDemocracy #demonstration #DirectAction #DonaldTrump #DumpTrump #EveryVoteCounts #F**kTrump #GOP #MangoMussolini #NewYork #NYC #politics #PresidentialElection #ProtectTheResults #ProtectTheVote #Protest #ResistTrump #RiseAndResist #SaveDemocracy #USA #Vote2020 #VoteSuppression © Erik McGregor - [email protected] - 917-225-8963
Members of the activist group "CANCEL THE DEBT" took to the streets of New York City, blocking midtown intersections to protest MOMA´s board of trustees member Steven Tananbaum, the owner of a large amount of Puerto Rican debt through his hedge fund company "GoldenTree". Tananbaum made his money at the cost of closing schools, cutting retirement pensions and other services in Puerto Rico. #AbolishTheDebt #austerity #CancelTheDebt #Colonialism #CorporateGreed #cutbacks #DebtCrisis #DirectAction #EconomicInequality #FeedThePoor #GoldenTree #HedgeFunds #LaGenteAntesQueLaDeuda #manhattan #MOMA #NewYork #NYC #PeacefulProtest #PeacefulResistance #PROMESA #PRSeLevanta #PuertoRico #PuertoRicoNoSeVende #ReleaseTheRelief #ResistTrump #SeAcabaronLasPromesas #StevenTananbaum #UnitedAgainstPromesa #VultureCapitalism © Erik McGregor - [email protected] - 917-225-8963
