Advocacy & Civic Engagement: Helps the organization achieve greater impact in the community by creating a pathway for advocacy and meaningful engagement.
FPWA aims to utilize the unique and diverse strengths of our membership to mobilize communities for social change. We are proud to announce our 2017-18 cohort comprised of 11 FPWA member agencies representing all five boroughs of New York City:
Manhattan (Washington Heights/Inwood)
We will support our membership to develop strategies that deepen their understanding and involvement on the issues most impacting their communities. We will support trainings, the development of organizational plans, and engagement activities.
Training workshop topics include:
1. Voter Registration and Get Out the Vote (GOTV)
2. Voter Education, Outreach and Mobilization
3. Policy Advocacy and Community Organizing
Throughout the year, FPWA arranges meetings with Deputy Mayors and Commissioners from the de Blasio administration to discuss their vision and priorities, and identify ways that community and faith based organizations throughout New York City can partner with them to promote equal opportunity for vulnerable New Yorkers. These meetings are opportunities for our members to engage with our appointed officials and share emerging issues and recommendations.
*Meetings are open to principals of FPWA member agencies only. The maximum number of attendees is 40 people. Additional names will be added to a wait list.
