Community Defense Fund

Donate to the Community Defense Fund

Furious that he is facing a bold challenger, current New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has threatened the funding of progressive community organizations. Plain and simple, the Governor is putting his political ambitions over the well-being of immigrants, homeless families, our youth, all New Yorkers.

These threats are not idle. They could result in reductions of vital programs and services in our communities. We have created this fund to replace threats with freedom and restore faith in the democratic process. Your support will enable our organizations to serve our communities without fear. 

Donations will go to Community Defense Fund, a project of The Advocacy Fund.

This fund will be jointly managed by a council of representatives from each of the impacted organizations referenced here. This will ensure a proper distribution so that the great frontline community organizing and services provided by these organizations can continue.
