Action Alerts – Week of February 15, 2021

Nobody Is Above the Law in Syracuse

CNY Solidarity members and supporters:
Please find below the weekly legislative action alerts from Indivisible NY24. The House has introduced badly needed legislation to revive our threatened democracy.  This week we need to continue to get wavering Democrats (at least) to support H.R. 1, the For the People Act.  More information about H.R. 1 found  here.

Monday (Feb 15)

For the People Act (H.R. 1) Phone Bank

House members have reintroduced H.R. 1, the For the People Act, which seeks to preserve our democracy by ending partisan gerrymandering, reducing money’s influence on politics, securing voting rights, improving election security, and fighting corruption. Sign-up here to phone constituents of wavering House Democrats to pressure them to sign on at 6 p.m..

Tuesday (Feb 16)

Write your lawmakers to support H.R. 1, For the People, (and now S. 1. In the Senate)

Use the format provided by Common Cause to write your Representative and Senators here.

If you haven’t already, please consider writing a Letter to the Editor Supporting H.R. 1

You can go here for a list of talking points and automatic submission of your letter to area outlets. 

Wednesday (Feb 17)

Restore Voting Rights 

Governor Cuomo restored voting rights to New Yorkers who have completed a prison term by executive order. We need to make this partial repudiation of Jim Crow law permanent. Ask your representatives in the state legislature to support S830A.  You can email, tweet, and/or phone them from here.

Thursday (Feb 18)

You’re receiving this email because you’re subscribed to the CNY Solidarity Coalition announcements list. This is a low-volume list (typically no more than 4-6 messages per week), which now has more than 2,000 subscribers. We also maintain higher-volume listservs as venues for discussion of general Coalition-wide issues (discussion-cnysolidarity), key state and local action team organizing priorities (stateleg-cnysolidarity), and key Indivisible NY24 organizing priorities (IndivisibleNY24). The latter list includes more frequent action alerts and information about local electoral campaigns supported by Indivisible. If you’d like to be added to any of these lists, please reply to me and let me know which ones.
