CNY Solidarity members and supporters:
This month’s primary election day is Tuesday of this week. In Syracuse, there are important Democratic primaries for mayor, common council, and school board. Some county legislature districts have primaries as well. For those of you in Onondaga County, you can find your sample ballot here.
Nationally, our principal focus remains on supporting the democracy reform effort in Congress. This means passing S.1: For the People Act, the John Lewis Voting Rights Act, D.C. statehood, and more. At noon on June 28, we’re hosting a Deadline for Democracy rally at the Federal Building, part of a national call to action. More info here and here. Please help spread the word.
See below for some additional ways to get involved.

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.
