Queens advocacy group calls for more healthcare access, immigrant protections


Make the Road New York (MRNY) announced its 2022 policy platform, the Respect and Dignity platform, which details a series of legislations to protect immigrants and working-class people of color across the state. One woman from Jackson Heights, who is a member of MRNY, has been organizing and hoping that MRNY’s activism will make a difference for her and others in her community. 

MRNY released the expansive list of policy proposals for the upcoming year on Tuesday, Jan. 25, ranging from healthcare access to expanded government aid programs. As the state prepares to approve a budget proposal in April, MRNY will be working over the coming months to advocate on behalf of their recommendations.
