Undo Poverty: Flushing is an innovative collaborative initiative, created by Mobility LABs anchor partner Chinese-American Planning Council in partnership with other Robin Hood grantees and community based organizations with a shared mission to fight poverty and promote economic mobility for residents of Flushing, Queens.

Undo Poverty: Flushing does this by connecting individuals to local community resources such as English literacy courses, emergency food relief, and career training, while also driving hyper-local community-drive narrative change work, like their recently produced documentary “The Cost of Living,” which delves into the lives and struggles of low income Flushing residents.
