Our mission

 
 

Equity Advocates provides policy education, advocacy training, and coalition building services to New York State based nonprofit leaders working to improve healthy food access for underserved urban communities. Through this work, EA will help build a nonpartisan grassroots movement to ensure that all New Yorkers, regardless of race or income, can access healthy and affordable food.

 
 

Guidance and Strategy

In a constantly changing political landscape, we keep members informed with sophisticated political analysis and funding opportunities, ongoing advocacy training, long-term strategic thinking, and frequent calls to action to advance their missions.

Relationship Building

We work at a grassroots level to help members have a consistent and amplified voice in government. To do so, members will get instant access to a vibrant coalition of like-minded organizations. We also help members foster and maintain relationships with elected officials, keeping them connected and informed of the issues that matter most to their community.

 
 

We partner with nonprofits and community-based organizations with a mission to improve access to healthy food, alleviate poverty and advance food justice in cities across the state of New York.
