SUPPORT CITIZENS UNION FOUNDATION
Citizens Union Foundation is the engine that powers the positions we take and the policies we press forward. Together with volunteer committees, we research solutions to reform city and state government, develop reports and analyses, and translate this information for various audiences: elected officials, the general public and the media. We formulate sound reform policies that can appeal across a wide spectrum of views; then we appeal to elected officials to embrace these policies and work for their passage in city and state government.
SUPPORT GOTHAM GAZETTE
Gotham Gazette, published by Citizens Union Foundation, is an award-winning online news source covering the intersection of politics, policy and the issues faced by everyday New Yorkers. The Gazette educates and informs the public through independent reporting that enlivens the debates that shape New York City and State. As a resource and a public record, Gotham Gazette is highly valued by a wide audience of policy makers, advocates, elected officials, students and members of the public.
