We’re currently have five main committees, through which we take action:

  • ANTI-GENTRIFICATION
    We have worked particularly to repudiate spot rezoning that developers are attempting to use to build new buildings whose higher rents will force up rents throughout the area
  • FAIR ELECTIONS
    UPA is part of the Fair Elections for NY Coalition, working to replace corporate influence on elections with a small donor matching system that amplifies the voices of the 99%
  • PEACE AND JUSTICE
    The Peace and Justice Committee organizes film screenings with discussion and other community events to promote understanding of progressive values.
  • SINGLE PAYER HEALTH CARE
    We are working hard to pass the NY Health Act for universal publicly funded single payer healthcare for all residents of NYS – as well as working for national Medicare for All
  • UPTOWN4BERNIE
    Home for all those working for #Bernie2020!

Members also work on many other issues, such as Immigration, Climate, Criminal Justice, Human Rights, and Foreign Policy, so if you have a passion for something else and would like to form a committee, that’s great!  Propose one at any general meeting or by notifying the Steering Committee.
