We are a public interest advocacy group
Advance New York exists to promote intelligent, efficient, good government to improve citizen health, safety, and well-being. We are eager to expand tools for effective political advocacy and engagement with the state legislative process to citizens across New York.
Advance New York is built on the idea that good, sensible policy-making deserves the same type of robust advocacy that special interest groups place on legislators for their favorite pet projects. Unlike your typical lobbying group, Advance New York has no vested economic interest in legislative outcomes. We are concerned with promoting the common good, and are focused on drafting well-written model bills and amendments to help state and local legislators improve the health, safety, and well-being of their constituents.
Our aim is for New York to become a model for intelligent policy-making. We are particularly interested in bridging the gap between social research and legislative action. We vigorously promote evidence-based policy-making and believe that many of our problems can be solved by adopting policies already proven to work.
We are Advance New York, and we invite you to join us.
Towards a better New York,
Lisa and Nick
