Building for Change
New York City has been rocked to its foundation since March. As community members and leaders, activists and attorneys, caregivers and volunteers, we are all doing the best we can each day to meet the needs of this moment. Like you, we at TakeRoot Justice understand that there is no return to normal. We are engaged in the hard work of rebuilding our community fabric, our systems of care and justice, and our institutions to be more resilient and equitable.
At TakeRoot, we continue to stand with the most vulnerable communities during the COVID-19 pandemic as they fight to ensure that all New Yorkers still have access to justice. We and our partners are helping essential workers gain access to safety standards and sick leave. We launched a new Response Hotline that is offering support on: evictions and inability to pay rent, public benefits and unemployment benefits, and commercial rent and consumer debt issues.
