VOCAL-NY is committed to expanding the capacity of our member base to participate meaningfully in American Democracy. We acknowledge the role that systemic injustices informed by race, geographic location, among other systemic variables plays into policy and practice that often repress vulnerable communities from civic participation.

We work to ensure that people are considered before profit, especially as it relates to pharmaceutical and Wall Street greed, by building political power through coalitions.

Our accomplishments include:

  • Founding member of the Hedge Clippers coalition to expose the investors behind corporations that threaten the fabric of democracy.
  • Leaders in the campaign for the the Robin Hood Tax on Wall Street transactions.
  • Led protests against the investors of prohibitively expensive drugs, including Martin Shkreli and the owners of the EpiPen
