New York City District-by-District

As its first project, Rights Here is sharing the stories of people throughout New York City who are transforming the way we build: from Council District 51 in Staten Island, to District 1 in Manhattan.

Rights Here shines a spotlight on the impacts of the real estate and construction industries in New Yorkers’ daily lives and elevates local solutions for change – people and organizations working for affordable housing, workers’ rights, racial justice, protection from climate change and more.
