The Project

The purpose of Bethany’s project is to keep New York livable for current and future low-income immigrants by building multiracial alliances to push the federal, state and local governments on affordable housing issues. Bethany addressed the housing needs of low-income Asian immigrants through multiracial coalition building and organizing, direct services and policy work. The project aims to empower Asian immigrants to form coalitions across racial lines to advocate for equitable development that makes affordable housing a priority.
