Vision: CVH is working towards building a society in which the systems that govern, foster racial, social and economic justice not exploitation – particularly for low-income people of color. CVH seeks a society in which all people are treated with mutual respect and when privileges of one group do not exist.

Impact: CVH organizes around local and state-wide issues, including job security, participatory democracy, housing and public transportation. CVH leads a Special Projects organization, leading the projects: #NOCuts Coalition, East Harlem Neighborhood Planning & Rezoning, Ramarley Graham Youth Organizing Fellowship, Participatory Budgeting NYC, and Member Congress.
