The Invest in Our New York Campaign is a state-wide effort to rebuild New York’s economy. We advocate for deep investments in working-class and low-income New Yorkers, and communities of color funded by increasing taxes on New York’s millionaires, billionaires, and big corporations.
**In 2021,** our statewide coalition and supporting legislators successfully secured changes to our regressive tax systems, which generated billions of dollars in new public funds. Invest in Our NY also joined in demands to fund critical government programs, including $3B to provide unemployment benefits to workers left out of the state's Unemployment Insurance program, $2B in rental assistance for tenants during the pandemic, $10B to fund the first year of the state’s child care program, and more.
**In 2023,** the Invest in Our NY Campaign is calling on the Governor and State Legislature to continue raising public funds by making corporations and the ultra-rich pay what they owe and to invest in funding universal childcare, free public higher education, social housing, climate justice programs, and helping New Yorkers make ends meet.
If passed, the historic suite of legislation would represent the single largest measure taken to close New York’s inequality gap in decades.
