What we're about

People of New York City, unite!

We are members of a Movement for a People’s Party (“MPP”) and we seek to build a national political party, separate from both the Republican and Democratic parties, to represent the interests of the American people in government. More about MPP can be found at our website at https://www.forapeoplesparty.org/

We are building the NYC Chapter of MPP.

We work in coalition with workers, unions, students and academics, and progressive groups. All those who have come to the conclusion that neither the Democrats nor Republicans are willing to represent the American people are invited to join. Those interested in Socialism as an alternative to failing Capitalism are invited. We welcome people who are involved with other progressive groups to also join us and we will work with you collaboratively. All those who are curious about these ideas are welcome to attend to see if we would be a fit for you.
