CVH POWER! MISSION
Community Voices Heard Power is a multi-racial member-led organization that builds power through grassroots organizing. We organize to build power that can change systems and shape policies that ensure social, racial, and economic justice for all New Yorkers.
WHAT CVH POWER! STANDS FOR
CVH Power works to make New York State:
> A model of democratic participation and progressive policies...
> That will improve the lives of poor and working class families across the state....
> And be a model for the rest of the country!
CVH POWER! HISTORY
CVH Power’s sister organization, Community Voices Heard was founded by a small group of mothers on welfare in 1996. It has won a jobs program that put over 20,000 welfare recipients to work in living wage jobs, won resources and improvements in public housing, and has mobilized over 18,000 voters.
When CVH leaders and members decided to enter political work, it was not only to change the nature of politics in New York State, but also to utilize additional tools to achieve our organizational mission. CVH Power is a strategic partner to our c3, and likewise our c3 work is a critical foundation out of which to build CVH Power’s political work. Our strategies and theories of change straddle both organizations.
