Citizen Action of New York

Citizen Action of New York is a grassroots membership organization taking on big issues that are at the center of transforming American society.  Citizen Action of New Yorklooks for opportunities to accomplish big changes – not small, incremental reforms. We work to elect progressive candidates to office who are committed to these issues.

Citizen Action of New York’s power comes from the grassroots: people coming together to push the edge of the possible. Every new member helps bring New York and America closer to a society that works for all of us!
