New Neighbors Partnership is looking for New Neighbors Clothing Partnership volunteers. New Neighbors Partnership matches newly arrived refugee families with local families who have older kids and can share ongoing hand-me-downs from season to season. By partnering with a newly arrived family to contribute ongoing hand-me-down kids clothes, you can help a family feel welcomed and supported in their new life here. 

End Street Harassment: Street harassment is a form of violence with roots in different and intersecting forms of oppression. It hurts people and communities by causing fear, anxiety, distrust, and by limiting their mobility. When people feel unsafe in public spaces, they are less likely to spend time outside or join group activities. We all have a role to play in preventing and responding to street harassment. Check out “End Street Harassment: A NYC Resource Guide” to learn ways to prevent and respond to street harassment in the moment or as a bystander, and for supportive tips and resources.

Contact the Tenant Helpline: The Tenant Helpline is a one-of-a-kind tenant resource to inform New York City tenants about their rights and connect them to housing-related resources, including free legal services. The new live call system will be a critical resource for New York tenants who face potential eviction, landlord harassment, or unacceptable living conditions. Call 311 and ask for the “Tenant Helpline”
