Local Coalitions

Local affiliates listed below affirm the mission and goals of the Labor-Religion Coalition of New York State. Chapters include a decision-making body that meets regularly and is open to all persons willing to work toward the goals of the coalition. Most local coalitions are led by co-chairs representing the religious and labor segments of a region (and sometimes the community-at-large). Local affiliates choose issues of economic and social justice that unite participants and build the coalition.
