CNY Solidarity Coalition

Anchor Organizations

  • The Syracuse Peace Council (SPC), founded in 1936, is an antiwar/social justice organization. We are community-based, autonomous and funded by the contributions of our supporters. SPC educates, agitates and organizes for a world where war, violence and exploitation in any form will no longer exist. We challenge the existing unjust power relationships among nations, among people and between ourselves and the environment. We work to replace inequality, hierarchy, domination and powerlessness with mutual respect, personal empowerment, cooperation and a sense of community.
  • The Workers’ Center of Central New York is a grassroots organization focused upon workplace and economic justice. Through community organizing, leadership development, popular education and policy advocacy, the Workers’ Center of Central New York aims to empower marginalized, low-wage workers to combat workplace abuses and improve wages and working conditions throughout the community.
  • The Central New York Area Labor Federation (AFL-CIO) is the area federation representing over 100,000 members of 200 local unions in eleven central New York counties. Our mission is to improve the lives of working families—to bring economic justice to the workplace and social justice to our state and the nation.
  • Syracuse Cultural Workers, founded in 1982, SCW is a progressive publisher committed to peace, sustainably, social justice, feminism and multiculturalism. We see cultural work as an essential part of and support for political and economic change. Many of our materials celebrate movements for social change and their leaders, thus helping to legitimize history that is largely ignored or trivialized by commercial media and school textbooks. SCW also helps to unite socially concerned artists with a growing audience hungry for meaningful artwork.
  • Urban Jobs Task Force An organization made up of community groups; faith based organizations and concerned citizen, dedicated to creating a local economy that provides good jobs and job training for local communities of color, low income families and more opportunities for local woman and minority-owned enterprises.
