We are proud to announce the launch of Equity Advocates, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to building up the political power of food access organizations across New York State. Equity Advocates partners with the community food experts that lead these organizations and provides them with the tools they need to be more civically engaged, including policy education, advocacy training, and coalition building services. Through this work, we will help build a nonpartisan grassroots movement to ensure that all New Yorkers, regardless of race or income, can afford healthy food.
We are launching our 2019 Campaign to support the first phase of our work. Our immediate goal is to build our network of partner organizations throughout New York State. Our campaign target is to reach $20,000 in a month. A tall order for a first campaign but we know it is possible with your support. Can you join us for our first campaign?
