In October 2020, Citizens’ Committee for Children of New York (CCC), FPWA, and United Neighborhood Houses (UNH) launched a series of public webinars to discuss the structural and institutional barriers that have disproportionately kept persons of color living at or near poverty since the founding of our city.
Our work now continues as we move to advance our R.E.A.L. Equity Agenda of race-conscious policies and programs that would lead to economic security and well-being for Black and people of color.
As we move forward rebuilding New York City in the wake of the pandemic and reinvigorated demands for racial equality while gearing up for the 2021 elections, it is critically important that this agenda is adopted by mayoral and city council candidates.
