URIP recognizes how important it is to acknowledge those that actively support the anti-racist work that we do. Please see the list of our partners that continue to support us and help our growth every academic year.
People's Institute for Survival and Beyond (PISAB)
PISAB is a national and international collective of anti-racist, multicultural community organizers and educators dedicated to building an effective movement for social transformation. PISAB believes that racism is the primary barrier preventing communities from building effective coalitions and overcoming institutionalized oppression and inequities. Through Undoing Racism®/Community Organizing Workshops, technical assistance and consultations, The People’s Institute helps individuals, communities, organizations and institutions move beyond addressing the symptoms of racism to undoing the causes of racism so as to create a more just and equitable society.
*URIP is the student organizing branch of PISAB and continue to appreciate the PISAB community that we are apart of.
The Anti-Racist Alliance works to undo structural racism from a common understanding as presented by the People's Institute for Survival and Beyond in the Undoing Racism Workshop. In the New York region, The People's Institute organizes not only with social work educators and human service providers but with school teachers, parents and youth, health care providers, criminal justice advocates, and the faith community.
NYC Chapter of the National Association of Social Workers (NASW-NYC)
NASW-NYC is a strong, effective, and diverse membership association that effectively promotes the value and visibility of the social work profession and enhances the profession’s credibility and influence at state and local levels. NASW-NYC exists to serve its members and to address their concerns. Social workers participate in NASW through its Board of Directors, committees and task forces. NASW-NYC’s priorities include addressing issues related to social work licensing in New York State, and assuring that the public understand the value and contribution of professional social workers.
Jewish Board of Family and Children's Services (JBFCS)
JBFCS has one mission - to get help to those who need it. JBFCS offers social service and mental health programs to all New Yorkers. The depth and breadth of our programming is matched only by the diversity of the population we serve. What unites every one of us -- our staff, our clinicians, and the people we serve -- is a common understanding of our personal and family challenges and the mutual aspiration toward a satisfying life for all, regardless of social, economic, or health status.
