Fighting for social, economic & racial justice
The VOCAL Action Fund is a not-for-profit organization and the nonpartisan advocacy and political arm of Voices Of Community Activists & Leaders (VOCAL-NY). The VOCAL Action Fund was created to provide a grassroots, independent and political voice for the most marginalized communities. Through educational and electoral activity, legislative advocacy, voter education, and community organizing, the VOCAL-NY Action Fund serves to enhance and politicize the mission and vision of VOCAL-NY.
VOCAL Action Fund is dedicated to mobilizing directly-impacted people to elect officials who will fight for a just, equitable, caring, and compassionate democracy. By electing lawmakers who represent the interests of low income people and communities of color, we can fight for systemic change rooted in justice, compassion, and love. We approach this work with a firm belief in reducing harm and ending stigma, and the knowledge that the issues impacting our communities are driven by institutional oppression, not personal failings.
