Our #buildCOMMUNITIES™ platform lays out a vision in which safety is fostered in well-resourced communities, not through law enforcement. By uplifting the work and expertise of directly impacted leaders and investing in housing, education, community programs, and public health, we can build healthy, thriving communities.
#buildCOMMUNITIES™ means investing in:
Our #buildCOMMUNITIES™platform was built out of a collaboration of directly impacted people and communities, as well as partner organizations and advisors in New York.

Now, our vision for #buildCOMMUNITIES™means uplifting the work and expertise of directly impacted people nationally, to build well-resourced communities across the country.
