We Got Our Grant Check for Organizing in Crown Heights!

Citizens Committee for New York City is thrilled to support Together Because for a second consecutive year with a Neighborhood Grant. Together Because embodies the vision and goals of our organization - people coming together to improve the quality of life for New Yorkers. Our city has always been and continues to be a socio-economically, politically, and culturally dynamic city and equipping New Yorkers to respond to these kinds of shifts with tools to address the inequalities and disparities that manifest as a result of this dynamism is critical. Together Because’s work is critical, timely, and necessary in supporting New Yorkers with civic engagement, organizing, and advocacy tools to address the city’s most pressing issues and we look forward the conditions for significant impact that Together Because will create!

After last year's organizing in Sunset Park, Together Because has been blessed with a second grant from Citizens Committee for NYC, this time for work in Crown Heights! We are excited for the upcoming months of orientations, canvasses, individual meetings, trainings, social events, and actions in order to facilitate relationship building, local leadership development, and building power. 

We will be focusing on helping young mothers to meet more people, learn new things, and develop their leadership skills. We have started outreach and planning and have several events coming up.
