CNY Solidarity members & supporters:Please find below the weekly legislative ACTION ALERTS from Indivisible NY24.
Nationally, our key focus remains the For the People Act (HR1/S1). That bill must pass in July to prevent Republicans from gerrymandering electoral districts.
We’re also tracking a number of related democracy reform bills, including DC Statehood and the John Lewis Voting Rights Act. On May 8, we participated in a national day of action in support of the John Lewis bill. We gathered with 50+ people on the sidewalk outside Wegmans Dewitt with signs supporting all three bills. Everyone mark your calendars for 11am on Sat., July 10, when we’re planning to reprise the action.
Today (May 24)
