CNY Solidarity members and supporters:
Please find below the weekly ACTION ALERTS from Indivisible NY24 and our legislative action teams.
The priority for the next two days is to Get Out the Vote for the June 23 primary. Absentee ballots must be postmarked by June 22 or delivered to the Board of Election on June 23. If you don’t already have an absentee ballot, vote in person on June 23. Sign up to phone bank for Dana Balter. Details below. Let us continue our support for protesters for police reform such as Last Chance for Change, which is on its 23rd day of a 40-day commitment to march for the cause. They meet most every day at 2:00 at Institute of Technology near Adams and South State Streets (sometimes at other locations), and typically march by 3:00.

Stress the need to keep the $3.6 billion in election funding and the $25 billion to found the Postal Service, which are essential to have a safe and fair election in November.
