CDP prioritizes working with groups that are community-based and engaged in grassroots organizing work for social justice. Groups that we work with should meet most or all of the following criteria:
- Based in one or more low-income/excluded communities in New York City
- Conduct community organizing campaigns with a goal of achieving systemic change
- Membership-based, member-led organization
- Engage in leadership development and base-building activities
You can see a list of our current community partners here.
CDP does not provide services to individuals unconnected with a community group, and does not work with groups based outside of New York City.
