Economy & Democracy
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 play 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.
