Become a VOCAL-NY Member

From our founding to today, VOCAL-NY members are the lifeblood of our organization.

Members participate in decision making about our campaigns, meet with elected officials about our issues, take action in the streets, run our board of directors, and approve all staff hiring. Throughout our history, thousands of low-income New Yorkers affected by HIV/AIDS, the war on drugs, homelessness, and mass incarceration have participated in VOCAL-NY events.
