In January 2018, SNP began a six-month, strategic planning process through which we committed to create a new media advocacy platform to elevate the voices of those who have historically been excluded from traditional media.
Most of our clients and community partners lack the platform, tools, and other resources to effectively share their stories.
Since the creation of our media advocacy initiative, we have launched the following digital media campaigns:
#HomelessCantStayHome is a campaign demanding that NYC Mayor de Blasio open 30,000 currently vacant hotel rooms for all homeless people who need a room and enact other protective measures to ensure that our homeless neighbors and our entire city can stay safe and alive during the Covid-19 pandemic.
In May 2018, in the weeks leading up to the passage of the “Housing Stability and Tenant Protection Act,” we released a campaign wherein tenants’ in Queens discussed how major capital improvements (MCIs) threatened them, their buildings, and communities.
