We need a New York State legislature that works for all of us, not just the wealthy and well-connected. On Jan. 10, we are coming together with progressive activists from across the state to demand an end to business as usual!
This coming Tuesday, social justice advocates from across NY will be converging at the State Capital for The Anger Into Action Day of Action and Rally. We will engage in direct actions that urge State Legislators to protect New Yorkers from the impacts of a Trump-Pence-Ryan national government by passing progressive legislation like the New York Health Act.
You have likely heard that Senators in the Independent Democratic Conference have decided to partner with Senate Republicans this session. This is unconscionable at a time when the nationally, Republicans are determined to destroy public healthcare. We are targeting IDC members who have not yet sponsored New York Health with a spirited petition delivery and vigil for the New Yorkers who will suffer and die if Republicans in Congress have their way. We will INVITE Senators to sponsor the New York Health Act and stand up for the health of New Yorkers.
If you can join us or would like more details or would like to help prepare for the action, please let me know! There will be a number of "actions" occurring simultaneously between 1 and 3PM and then a rally/speak-out at 3pm. We will meet at 1pm in the Well of the Legislative office building and take it from there. For more information, contact (315) 414-7720
