Nefertiti Macaulay is a new lead organizer/community organizer for Crown Heights and Bed-Stuy for New York Communities for Change, a community-based organization. Macaulay works in the community five days a week speaking to people on issues such as affordable housing, gentrification, education budget, and living wages. These issues really hit home to people in low to moderate income communities, trying to keep a roof over your head while making little to nothing. Legislation needs to change, and one way to actually make an impact is to have power in numbers. Macaulay rallies members around their issues in order to see positive change in their neighborhoods, their city, and state-wide.
