Moral Monday 6/15/15 - Senate 'Indictment'

The following 'indictment' was read by 100 protesters outside the New York Senate Chambers on Monday, June 15, 2015, at a Moral Mondays rally. Earlier, faith, labor, and community leaders, workers, and people of conscience criticized the State Senate's inability to enact ethics reforms, fully fund public education, raise the minimum wage, enact criminal justice reforms, or implement fair and equitable taxation. Sixteen protesters, including six clergy, were arrested for blockading the Senate doors.

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.

While it could have been worse, this year's state budget is far from the moral budget that we need to combat devastating poverty and inequality in our state. We will continue fighting and we need your help.
