About FPWA

FPWA is a social justice, anti-poverty policy and advocacy organization committed to economic opportunity and upward mobility for all. FPWA has advocated for New Yorkers experiencing challenges and the community based agencies that serve them for nearly 100 years, and has provided grants to help them meet their basic needs. FPWA’s member network of more than 170 faith and community-based organizations reaches more than 1.5 million people in New York’s diverse communities each year.

Roll Up Your Sleeves NY is FPWA’s community organizing campaign centered on creating and disseminating culturally appropriate and trusted information to promote vaccine confidence and uptake among vaccine eligible individuals in Black, African, African-American, Afro-Latino, and Afro-Caribbean communities. 

To expand our reach in communities of color, FPWA is partnering with the NAACP, the National Urban League, and the National Action Network, three other leading organizations that have been and continue to be at the forefront of vaccine equity and education in the state’s Black communities. FPWA is also funding community based and faith organizations in areas with the greatest need to support COVID-19 vaccine outreach, education, and access.

This campaign is being funded by the New York State Department of Health, in partnership with the FPWA.
