Advocacy & Civic Engagement: Helps the organization achieve greater impact in the community by creating a pathway for advocacy and meaningful engagement.
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.
