About Us

SAFE NYC was formed by a small group of local activists motivated by the increasing visibility of anti-immigrant rhetoric and the wish to celebrate and support our immigrant neighbors through political advocacy and community engagement. We use a three-pronged approach to connect with, learn from and find ways to better our city for NYC’s immigrant communities as well as all oppressed and targeted groups:

  • Take Action! SAFE NYC serves as a hub for volunteer opportunities and to stay engaged in actions that others are taking and calls for urgent and mass action.
  • Fundraising¬†We leverage our personal and professional networks and our varied skillsets to raise money for organizations working directly with NYC’s immigrant communities.
  • Workshopping our Privilege¬†At our meetings, we commit to tackling the “difficult conversations” and learning how to carry those conversations and an understanding of our own privilege out of SAFE and into our communities.
