Oyate Group’s Rising Initiatives aims to address the healthcare disparities and lack of access to care that negatively affect marginalized New Yorkers.


To support the response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Oyate Group launched a vaccination initiative, financially supporting clinics in the community, vaccinating seniors in NYCHA housing and fighting disinformation in the Bronx and Upper Manhattan through its Bronx Rising Initiative and Uptown Rising Initiative.

Taking Action to Save Lives

“This is the worst public health crisis in our history, and it is hitting our Bronx community harder than most places in the world. Now more than ever, our community needs help. Our federal government is not doing enough for us, so Oyate Group will continue to secure resources that help support the organizations that are working on the front lines.

We will get through this together!
