Join the Labor-Religion Coalition of NYS Today, December 7th, to learn from the plight, fight, and insight of Capital Region community members who are engaged in struggles around food and housing insecurity. In recent years, New York has passed transformative legislation to meet the needs of poor and marginalized communities relating to food and housing. At the same time, the COVID-19 pandemic has exposed and exacerbated the extent of these crises and thrown millions into poverty and precarity.

On December 7th we will gather virtually to hear testimony from directly impacted leaders, learn about ways communities are organizing in response, and build solidarity among the poor and dispossessed.

Co-sponsors (list in formation): Labor-Religion Coalition of NYS, Capital Region Poor People’s Campaign, FOCUS Churches of Albany, Schenectady Community Ministries
