CNY Solidarity members and supporters:
Please find below the weekly action alerts from Indivisible NY24 and our legislative action teams.
First up, please note that this Friday, May 31, is the voter registration deadline for our upcoming June primary. As you know from previous emails, there are several progressive Democrats running in races with competitive primaries. If you know anyone who’s not yet registered to vote in New York, please pass along this link and encourage them to do so by Friday.
Second, note that Congress is on recess this week. As usual, Rep. Katko does not appear to have any events scheduled at which he can hear from a genuinely diverse group of constituents in a public setting. If anyone hears of such events, please pass along the details.
And now, on to the action alerts.
Monday-Tuesday (May 27-28)
No actions, as we honor our veterans on Memorial Day. Enjoy the time with friends and family.

From our friends at the Campaign for NY Health: Join a community forum to hear from community advocates about why they are committed to fighting for healthcare justice and a system that puts patients before profits.

Attendees will also gain an understanding of why the fight for universal healthcare must center disability rights and racial justice. 5:30-7pm at Beauchamp Library in Syracuse. More details here.
