This spring we've been reminded yet again how badly New York's political system needs reform. April's primary highlighted New York's low voter turnout and antiquated registration process. Then May brought the sentencing of former Senate Majority Leader Dean Skelos AND former Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver on corruption charges.
We're gearing up for our annual Faith for a Fair NY Retreat, held this year on Sept. 16-17 at the Dominican Retreat Center in Niskayuna! Join other faith leaders - both lay and clergy from many denominations and faiths - as we build relationships, learn together, and plan powerful action toward economic justice in New York State. Our workshop topics this year will include Single-Payer Healthcare, Effective Advocacy, Moral Budget, Low-Wage Worker Campaigns, and Immigrant Rights. Come be inspired and get connected to great work happening across the state!
