CNY Solidarity members and supporters:
Please find below the weekly action alerts from Indivisible NY24.
Our principal focus remains on supporting the democracy reform efforts in Congress. This means passing S.1: For the People Act, the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act, D.C. statehood, and other key reform bills. By coming together to enact these laws, we can ensure that all of us – no matter our race, zip code or income – have an equal say in our democracy.
During the congressional recess that concludes today, we’ve held three #DeadlineForDemocracy actions in support of these important democracy reform bills. Twice we’ve gathered with signs on the public sidewalk outside Wegmans Dewitt, and once we rallied outside the Federal Building downtown. We’ve also met repeatedly with Sen. Schumer’s staff to reiterate the importance of this effort. At our Indivisible NY24 meeting tomorrow evening (details below), we’ll discuss next steps.
Note also that this Sunday, CNY Solidarity will be holding its first in-person meeting since before the pandemic hit. I look forward to seeing many of you there.

The latter list includes more frequent action alerts and information about local electoral campaigns supported by Indivisible.
