United in defense of our community and our neighbors

Action Alerts – Week of March 1, 2021

Nobody Is Above the Law in Syracuse

CNY Solidarity members and supporters:
Please find below the weekly action alerts from Indivisible NY24. 

While millions can’t pay their rent of put food on the table, New York’s wealthiest billionaires have grown $87.7 million richer during the pandemic. New York desperately needs more investment in housing, healthcare, schools and teachers, our towns and cities, and our works and youth. Accordingly, we’re supporting the Invest in Our New York Campaign—which supports a package of six bills that ends tax breaks for the wealthiest New Yorkers and raises $50 billion to invest in meeting these vital needs. More information about CNY effort on this here.

In addition, the House will probably vote on H.R. 1, the democracy reform bill, this week. So, this is a good week to make a push on that. 

Monday (March 1)

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

H.R. 1, the For the People Act, 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 (March 2)

Call or Email your State Representatives to Urge them to Include the Invest in our New York Act 

We especially need constituents to contact Al Stirpe and William Magnarelli. But calls, letters, or emails to all of our representatives are welcome. (Rachel May and Pamela Hunter are supporting these bills). You can reach them here.

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.
