Action Alerts – Week of October 5

Nobody Is Above the Law in Syracuse

CNY Solidarity members and supporters:

Please find below the weekly ACTION ALERTS from Indivisible NY24 and our legislative action teams.

The election is just 4 weeks away.  This Friday, October 9 as the last date to register to vote for the upcoming election.  If interested in Get Out the Vote opportunities, contact Joan Durant at joandurant69@gmail.com for a list of opportunities.  In addition, if you would like an 8.5 x 11 Get-Out-The Vote poster, designed by Elaine Denton, for your office, faith community, neighborhood businesses, etc., contact Elaine Wolf at elainewolf0148@gmail.com.

Phone-banking and text-banking opportunities to support local and national campaigns continue this week.

And, please sign up to PROTECT THE RESULTS in response to the possibility that President Trump may try to contest or ignore the election results if he loses. If it comes to that, defending the election results may require mass, sustained, non-violent demonstrations nationwide. If you haven’t done so already, please sign up at https://protecttheresults.com/.

Today (Oct 5)

Pass the Right to Know Act

Continue to contact your Syracuse Common Councilor to support the Right to Know Act, which would require Syracuse police officers to identify themselves, tell people why they’re being stopped, and ask for consent if a search is intended.

The bill was tabled from Sept. 28 and is on the agenda for next Monday, Oct. 12. at 1:00.  This week is the time to get commitment and support to end police abuse.  See additional information in Save The Date for Monday, Oct. 12.  Call the Common Council office (315-448-8466) or your District Councilor
