Manhattan Together is part of the Industrial Areas Foundation, the nation’s first and largest network of multi-faith community organizations—and we have seven decades of experience winning tough battles across the nation.
Our 20+ member organizations have a deep-roots presence in the political and financial power centers in the eastern United States and Europe. Our members pushed the politicians in Baltimore to pass the first living wage law in the country and mobilized a grassroots army for the creation of universal health care in Massachusetts—both of which have become national models for just social policy.
Our local affiliates include: East Brooklyn Congregations (EBC), South Bronx Churches (SBC), Empowered Queens United for Action and Leadership (EQUAL) , Long Island Congregations Associations and Neighborhoods (Long ISLAND CAN), and New Jersey Together. Metro New York IAF affiliates have been in the New York area for over 20 years. Known for building thousands of affordable Nehemiah Homes in Brooklyn and the Bronx, and for launching and overseeing four public schools, these groups work on a range of issues that affect the lives of our members.
