Meeting with Assemblyman Cahill
In March, Nobody Leaves and our allies at Citizens for Local Power met with State Assemblyman Kevin Cahill at his office in Kingston. We had a productive meeting, looping the Assemblyman into the ongoing investigation of Central Hudson, discussing legislation on intervener funds, and getting to know one another. Just yesterday, the Assemblyman submitted his comment in support of a systematic investigation. The Daily Freeman, a paper in Assemblyman Cahill’s Ulster County, recently published an article on the investigation.
Right to the City Alliance 2016 National Retreat
The Right to the City Alliance is (in addition to being our fiscal sponsor) a national coalition of over 50 racial, environmental, economic and housing justice organizations across the US, of which Nobody Leaves Mid-Hudson is a proud member. In April, Right to the City brought its member organizations together at their retreat in Chicago, #RenterPower2016. Along with 130 other people, our organizer Spencer Resnick and our member Trudy-Ann Bowen-Griffiths spent 4 days building the future of our national housing movement.
We would like to extend our thanks to the NoVo Foundation for selecting us to become a funding partner and for awarding us a one-year grant. The NoVo Foundation, led by Peter and Jennifer Buffett, seeks to “foster a transformation from a world of domination and exploitation to one of collaboration and partnership.”
We would also like to extend our thanks to the Dyson Foundation for selecting us to become a funding partner and for awarding us a one-year grant. The Dyson Foundation’s current grantmaking includes a significant grants program in the Mid-Hudson Valley that seeks to improve the quality of life in the region, create opportunities and support for economically disadvantaged individuals and families, and strengthen the nonprofit sector.
Thank you for your continued support and participation in the fight for racial and economic justice!
