With 6 weeks left in this year's legislative session and scandals continuing to rock Albany, we're determined to keep attention on the scandal of New York's first-in-the-nation inequality. That's why we're returning to the State Capitol for four more Moral Mondays vigils, continuing to call on our leaders to pass urgently needed legislation to benefit the most vulnerable in our state.
Join us on May 18, June 1, June 8, and June 15 at 5:30 pm in the War Room to keep the pressure on our state government to act in the people's best interest.
On May 18, we'll be partnering with a coalition of other groups to call for Paid Family Leave. This important legislationwill give all workers the option of paid time off to care for newborns or seriously ill family members. Low-wage workers in particular will benefit from the ability to care for loved ones without losing needed income. Click here to RSVP, then share the Facebook image below to help spread the word.
On June 1, June 8 and June 15 at 5:30, we will again converge on the Capitol calling for action on all the issues we have worked on that remain unresolved: Strong public schools, fair taxation, living wages, strong social safety net, the DREAM Act, the HALT Solitary Confinement Act, Raise the Age legislation, implementation of a Special Prosecutor, ethics and campaign finance reform, and environmental justice. Mark your calendars and meet us in the War Room at 5:30 6/1, 6/8 and 6/15!
We cannot afford for the status quo of corruption and inaction to continue. Too many of our neighbors are suffering today for us to put off change until tomorrow. Join us at the Capitol for these final Moral Mondays of the session and make your voice heard!
