About Metro IAF – New York

Metro IAF NY has 118 dues-paying member institutions - congregations, schools and neighborhood organizations -  located in:

We believe that people working together have the power to change their communities and their country for the better.

Political and corporate leaders often don’t embrace change, unless they’re pressured by the people they serve. But too many people don’t realize they can join forces and create change in their neighborhoods and across the country.

We build people power to create a more just New York. We are part of the nation’s first and largest coalition of multi-faith organizations—and we have seven decades of experience winning tough battles across the nation.

Metro IAF – New York’s Victories Include:

  • Building or rehabilitating more than 6,400 units of affordable housing and apartments
  • Partnering with the NYC Department of Education to start four small quality public high schools and two charter schools, and create $300 million in school construction.

  • Helping pass NYC’s first living wage in 1996
  • Helping pass NYC Charter reform in 1990
  • Leading countless successful actions to improve bus, postal and senior services, and the conditions of our parks and grocery stores
  • Engaging thousands of congregational & community leaders each year in the democratic process.

METRO IAF 2014 ASSEMBLY

On March 30, 2014, more than 2200 leaders met Mayor Bill de Blasio to accelerate ongoing efforts to build affordable housing; improve conditions in NYCHA; create new communities of diverse schools focused on performance; reduce the threat of gun violence; and to announce new initiatives in senior housing and other areas.

This assembly was a follow up to the three mayoral candidates' assemblies that Metro IAF co-sponsored in January, February, and March of 2013.
