Over the past six months Reclaim has engaged in several surveys of concerned citizens in New York State. The Surveys were a resounding success in terms of learning more about Reclaim's base and how Reclaim can help New Yorkers make their government more transparent and accountable. We are now planning our first program based on your input and thought you might like an overview of the survey results, which are described below. Thank you!


The surveys yielded an above average level of input, attention, engagement, and activism compared to other groups and not for profit organizations. In addition, given the unusually high numbers of Reclaimers who stated that they are registered to vote, it appears that Reclaim New York represents one of the larger, most dedicated voting blocks in the State.

As we had hoped, your responses have helped Reclaim gain insight into what is needed in order to help New Yorkers become DIY Activists and Citizen Owners of their government.

We are pleased to announce that, in response to the interest expressed in this topic, Reclaim will host a Webinar on the NYS Freedom of Information Law (FOIL) to help Citizen Owners exercise their right to know what their local and state governments are doing.

The Webinar will be held on
Tuesday, April 20th, from 6 - 7:00 p.m.

This will be a highly informative, hands-on, how-to webinar and we hope that you join us. Sign up link coming soon!

On behalf of all of us at Reclaim, thank you.

About Us

We love New York, but our politicians won't police themselves. Albany politicians believe that government knows best and their friends come first. They're robbing us of our families, our finances, and our future. Their belief in the politics of envy will be the death of New York.

Somebody must stop this socialist slide, protect the taxpayer, and fight for the basic freedoms that made New York the Empire State. That somebody is Reclaim and the battle has begun.

We envision a freer New York made prosperous and competitive by improving public policy, nurturing civic engagement, and strengthening state and local government accountability.


Reclaim New York is a non-partisan, 501c3 non-profit organization that empowers freedom-minded citizens to understand the real story behind state and local policy.
