Highlights this week include two events on Friday—a 12 noon march in downtown Syracuse to #CloseTheCamps and a 4pm lecture at SU by Ezra Levin, co-founder of Indivisible and co-author of We Are Indivisible: A Blueprint for Democracy After Trump. We’d like to make a big showing for both events, so please pencil them in now. More details below. Friday is also the voter registration deadline for this Fall’s elections. 

On Saturday, please join us at noon in North Syracuse for a rally and canvass in support of Onondaga County Legislature candidates Jessica Bumpus and Nodesia Hernandez. More details on that one below too.

Today (Oct 7)

Where’s Katko on Impeachment? 

For two and a half years, Rep. Katko has been telling us that he’s willing to stand up to Pres. Trump when needed. The time for doing so is long past due, but now more than ever. If you haven’t done so already, please call his office today and demand that he stand up for the rule of law, support the ongoing impeachment inquiry, and schedule a public meeting with constituents to discuss it. As always, Katko’s numbers are 315-423-5657 (Syracuse), 315-253-4068 (Auburn), or 202-225-3701 (DC).

City of Syracuse Redistricting Meetings

Syracuse Common Council President Helen Hudson will be hosting multiple informational meetings on Proposition 1 that will be on the City of Syracuse ballot this year. This proposition would change the City Charter to mandate that redistricting be conducted by an independent non-partisan group of citizens. 6pm at Westcott Community Center.

Wednesday (Oct 9)

One online comment today, plus another redistricting meeting tonight

Send testimony to the Public Campaign Financing Commission

Let the commission know that you support #FairElections and that you are counting on them to make our democracy work for everyone, not just big donors. The Commission has until Dec. 1 to create a brand new public campaign financing program for New York State. This is an opportunity to limit the power of big money in politics and give everyday New Yorkers a bigger say in the political process through a small donor matching program. This means:

• Creating a permanent public financing program covering primary and general elections

• Implementing at least a 6-to-1 match on small donations

• Lowering contribution limits for all candidates

• Creating an independent enforcement unit

Use this form to send an email to all the commissioners with your testimony in support of a strong small donor matching program.
