Community Voices Heard (CVH) is a member-led multi-racial organization, principally women of color and low-income families in New York State that builds power to secure social, economic and racial justice for all. Founded in 1994 by welfare recipients in New York City working to fight unjust welfare policies, we have since expanded our organization to include working on multiple issues in three additional counties in the Hudson Valley. Our long-term vision is to build statewide power to win important political and policy objectives at the state level. Our core organizing buckets include fighting for: a just social safety net; good jobs and access to them; truly affordable housing, including public housing; sustainable & resilient communities; and a participatory democracy. We have a strong political program that is run by our affiliated 501c4 organization, CVH Power. CVH is building out based on a comprehensive strategic plan that our leadership developed and that points to strengthening our commitment to building a large base of low-income members and leaders working together to win concrete campaign victories at the local, state and federal level.
