Description

BROOKLYN, NY – EIN 113344389  maketheroadny.org

Make the Road New York is the largest progressive grassroots immigrant-led organization in New York state. Our model integrates core strategies for concrete change that millions of families feel every day:

– Legal and Survival Services to tackle discrimination, abuse and poverty.

– Transformative Education to develop community members’ abilities to lead our organization, our movement, and society;

– Community Organizing to transform the systems and power structures impacting our communities; and
Policy Innovation to rewrite unjust rules and make our democracy truly accountable to all of us.

Staff and members repeat a common refrain: “Make the Road is my second home.” Regardless of immigration status, race, or gender identity, all find safety, support, and solidarity here. Everyone who comes with an individual story of abuse and exploitation finds that they are not alone – that in collectivizing our experiences and voices, we can build the power to change not just one case, but entire systems.

Caminante, no hay camino. Se hace camino al andar.”
“Searcher, there is no road. We make the road by walking.”
– Antonio Machado, Proverbios y Cantares XXIX

Make the Road New York (MRNY) is the largest progressive grassroots immigrant-led organization in New York state. The organization works on issues of workers' rights; immigrant and civil rights; environmental and housing justice; justice for transgender, gender nonconforming, intersex, and queer (TGNCIQ) people; and educational justice.[1] It has over 23,000 members[2] and five community centers in Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island, Long Island, and Westchester County.[3]

Since the inauguration of President Trump, Make the Road New York made national headlines for its work to end major banks’ financing of private prisons and immigrant detention centers[4] and for leading protests at JFK Airport following the Trump’s administration’s January 27, 2017, announcement of an executive order suspending entry to refugees and to citizens of seven predominantly Muslim countries[5]

At the state level, the organization has championed legislation for immigrant New Yorkers, such as the New York Dream Act, which provides undocumented students access to financial resources in higher education[6], and the State Driver's License Access and Privacy Act, restoring access to driver's licenses for all New Yorkers regardless of immigration status.[7]

History

Make the Road New York was created in the fall of 2007 through the merger of two New York City-based organizations, Make the Road by Walking and the Latin American Integration Center.[1]

Make the Road by Walking (MRBW) helped community members organize in order to change the public conversation about welfare and improving policy.[8]

The Latin American Integration Center (LAIC), founded in 1992 in Jackson Heights, Queens, provided support to Latin American immigrants in the form of community organizing, adult education, and citizenship assistance.[9]

Make the Road New York opened a Long Island office in Brentwood in 2012 to serve Nassau and Suffolk Counties’ growing immigrant communities.[10] In 2018, through a merger with the Westchester Hispanic Coalition, they began working with immigrant and working class communities in Westchester County out of their White Plains Office.[11]
