We FIGHT economic power at its core. NYCC and its members lead the fight against economic oppression by building campaigns from the ground up that challenge capital and oppressive economic systems.
We BUILD power and transform our communities. NYCC organizes in low-income and middle income neighborhoods to build a strong people’s movement that can bring tangible change to our communities. Our aim is to eliminate the ways capital has starved our communities of wealth for centuries.
Our organizing is premised on two simple truths: that when we knock on doors and meet people, the fabric of the community is tightened; and that when people are agitated not from one side to another, but from the bottom up, our movement is unified.
Whether calling out the vulture capitalists who are profiting off the humanitarian crisis in Puerto Rico or the real estate lobby that have bought and paid for undue influence in our state government, NYCC’s campaigns target the economic forces driving racial inequality. We seek to challenging those who rigged the system in their favor —wall street, hedge funds, real estate, private equity and the like— to pay the greatest concession to those who have been hurt the most— low income communities of color.
