The Movement Builders Awards are ALIGN’s annual fundraiser to support our work for clean air, green jobs, and dignity and justice for New York’s workers.

This year, workers are rising up to fight for fair wages, safe working conditions, and a just transition to a green future—and winning. Join us on October 11th to celebrate our movement’s power and the leaders who are making a difference. 

ALIGN stands in solidarity with workers fighting for fair wages, safe working conditions, and a just transition to a green future, and we’re proud to lift up the work of bold leaders in the movement who are charting the path forward.

For the 2023 Movement Builders Awards, we’re thrilled to be honoring:


SAG-AFTRA and WGA East, who have shut down Hollywood, striking to protect their members’ livelihoods and win a fair contract in the face of a changing industry.

Public Power NY coalition, who built the grassroots campaign that won the Build Public Renewables Act so New York can lead the nation in building publicly owned, 100% renewable energy while creating green, union jobs and making energy affordable for working families.

Maritza Silva-Farrell, a long-time organizer—including a 12-year tenure at ALIGN, six of them as Executive Director—and current leader in the Ford Foundation’s Future of Work(ers) program, who has left an indelible mark on New York’s movements for worker and climate justice.
