New York City
In New York City, Movement School is piloting a local approach to building power for marginalized communities, amplifying political voice for public housing (NYCHA) residents. This dynamic leadership development program will equip resident leaders with the tools and resources to organize their neighbors against injustice and win the power to build an inclusive and prosperous future for families living in public housing.
Movement School is launching a leadership development program for NYCHA residents that will equip them with the tools and resources to organize effectively in their complexes against the injustices of our government. This effort kicks off with the ‘State of NYCHA’ on June 21st, 2019 at 6pm in the Bronx, a town hall style event that will center and elevate the voices of NYCHA residents, create a space for coalition building to catalyze systemic change, and propose innovative community solutions to tackle the racial wealth gap and the climate crisis. Movement School’s leadership development program will cultivate movement leaders that will fight tirelessly for true representation for public housing residents at every level of government.
