Medicare for All Rally

Join Single Payer Health Long Island, the Women's March on NYC, Black Lives Matter of Greater NY, Campaign for NY Health and others in Union Square.

With the repeal of the flawed and partially defunded ACA on the horizon, and the abhorrent plans to replace it with something that is not care, but a tax cut for the wealthy, it's time to let Congress know we wish to have health care for all people like all other modern industrialized nations. It's very likely that they won't make a decision on #Trumpcare until the end of session in Congress, which is why we need to make our voices heard across the country to tell our elected officials that it is time to stop playing politics with people's lives. It is time for Medicare for All.

Please note:
The NYC event will be a RALLY rather than a march.
We will be gathering in the South Plaza of Union Square from 5PM to 7PM.

We have a fantastic line up of speakers coming. The event is accessible & we will have a sign language interpreter available.

If you're interested in volunteering for this rally please PM https://www.facebook.com/resisterz/

Bank Street Summer School Summit (S3)​​​​​​​

Join INBK as we co-host the Bank Street Summer School Summit (S3)

The Bank Street Summer School Summit (S3) is a day-long event for educators, parents and community stakeholders to meet, plan and engage one another about educational policy issues.

Summer school is generally understood to be a place and time to address that which was not addressed during the academic year.  Similarly, given the current political climate and related challenges to cultivating justice and equity in school communities, space and time is needed to connect with like-minded educators, plan for the year ahead and humanize the struggles and triumphs in education in order to re/claim schools and communities as safe and supportive spaces that nourish the tenets of democracy.

The Bank Street S3 consists of a morning session in which key ideas and urgencies in the field of education are discussed.  The afternoon sessions will provide participants an opportunity to think deeply with a group of interested in others on how to respond to various educational issues and plan next steps on a personal and communal level.  The summit seeks to bring people to think, network, and formulate plans for collective action together.  

The panel will consist of various stakeholders with an eye on are overarching question, how can an educator be an advocate around issues of policy, while working in the field?

Breakout sessions will focus on how an educator can be an advocate around issues of policy, while working in the field. Sessions will focus on networking and organizing to do work throughout the year with colleagues.

Topic areas include: State/Federal Level Policy, Charter Schools, Assessment and Evaluation, Special Education, Immigration, Budget and Funding, Equity and Excellence for All and School Desegregation.

Panelists and facilitators of breakout sessions are persons who have worked closely around specific policy issues through activism, advocacy and public service. Opportunities to learn more about and join organizations doing good work will also be available via tabling.

NY Energy Independence Events

On Thursday, June 29, New Yorkers are standing together to urge Energy Independence for New York State by freeing it from Big Oil and Gas! Events at locations across the State.

EVENT DETAILS (in formation) Thursday, June 29
Smithtown, LI: 2:30pm, location TBC
NYC: 12pm, Steps of City Hall
New Paltz: 2:00pm, outside the DEC Region 3 office: 21 S. Putt Corners Rd.
Albany: 2:30pm, Capitol Park West
Ithaca: 2:30pm, Dewitt Park - 102 E Court St, Ithaca, NY
Syracuse: 2:00pm, outisde the DEC Region 7 office: 615 Erie Blvd West
Rochester: 2:00pm, The Liberty Pole, at the corner of Franklin St. and East Main St.
Buffalo: 2:00pm, outside the DEC Region 9 office: 270 Michigan Ave

Burning fossil fuels is a leading contributor to climate change and the oil and gas industry has known this for decades. Yet, instead of acting, they began a campaign to manufacture doubt and undermine action. New York cannot break its addiction to fossil fuels by permitting new infrastructure that will lock us into decades of fossil fuel use and leave our land and water vulnerable to spills and accidents.

We call on Governor Cuomo to declare energy independence and urge him to use the State’s powers to say NO to fossil fuel infrastructure! Governor Cuomo and the Department of Environmental Conservation must deny permits, Water Quality Certifications, or other regulatory approvals for transmission pipelines, power generating plants, compressor stations, and all fossil fuel infrastructure projects.

New York can lead on energy by 1) accelerating investment in renewable energy like off-shore wind and community solar and in energy efficiency measures; and 2) holding corporate polluters responsible for their actions in the courts.

COSPONSORS (list in formation): Food & Water Watch, Sane Energy Project, United for Action, Veterans For Peace - NYC Chapter 034, Grassroots Environmental Education, PAUSE, Green Education and Legal Fund, Protect Orange County, Stop the Minisink Compressor Station, Fossil Free Tompkins, Environmental Justice Task Force/WNY Peace Center, Western NY Drilling Defense, Mothers Out Front - Finger Lakes, Riverkeeper, New Paltz Climate Action Coalition, Coalition Against the Pilgrim Pipeline, 305NYC, WNY Environmental Alliance, Citizen Action of NY, People's Climate Movement of the Capital Region

Sponsoring organizations (list in formation): Food & Water Watch, NYPIRG, United for Action, New York Communities for Change, Sane Energy Project, Sierra Club New York City Group, Politics Reborn, New York Indivisible, 350Brooklyn, 350NYC, Indian Point Safe Energy Coalition, South Asian Fund for Education, Scholarship & Training, Surfrider Foundation

Vigil to Save Healthcare (from Rise + Resist)

New Yorkers! Please mark some time between 5pm next Tues June 20 and 5pm June 21 to gather outside the Trump Intl Hotel @ Columbus Circle and take part in this 24-hour vigil to save American healthcare! Next Wed June 21 is a NATIONAL DAY OF ACTION to say NO to stripping millions of MEANINGFUL healthcare. While media and the public have been obsessing over the Russia hearings, the Senate has quietly been moving forward a stealth Obamacare-repeal/Medicaid-phase-out bill that may hit the full Senate floor as early as the week of June 26! Inside reports say it's very similar to the horrible AHCA bill the House recently passed...and that Senate only needs 2 undecided votes to pass it! We have no undecided senators in NY (thankfully) but we can still be part of this National Day of Action to send a message of outrage to lawmakers trying to repeal crucial healthcare for millions in favor of tax breaks for the superwealthy! Please gather your friends and allies and join us! I'll be there from 5pm til well into the night on Tuesday.

March for Truth NYC

Join us in Foley Square in downtown Manhattan on Saturday, June 3! People will be gathering starting at 9am, and the march down Broadway begins at 1030am.

There is more than sufficient cause for alarm about the role Russian state-led hacking and information warfare played in the 2016 election, and there are crucial unanswered questions about the relationship between the Russian state and Donald Trump, his associates and his campaign. The legitimacy of the United States government may hinge on the answers to these questions. If the president was elected even in part due to collusion with a foreign effort to interfere in our democratic process, then the will of the people has been subverted.

There is an active FBI investigation into these matters, and revelations may emerge any moment. And now the FBI Director, James Comey, has been fired because of that very investigation.  Congressional investigations in the House and Senate have been slow, under-resourced, and mired in partisan politics. Many Congressional leaders have called for an independent investigation, a special prosecutor or a commission to fairly investigate these concerns. Despite the clear will of the people, their calls have not been answered.  

Therefore, we call for a #MarchForTruth to raise our voices and let our elected leaders know that American citizens want answers. The legitimacy of our democracy is more important than the interests of any party, or any President. So, we will rise together to call for a fair and impartial investigation, for the pursuit of truth, and for the restoration of faith in our electoral system and the Office of the Presidency.

Across the country, peaceful demonstrations will be arranged on Saturday, June 3rd. Our goals are simple:

1. Congressional investigations should be properly resourced and pursued free of partisan interests, or an independent investigation must be established;

2. As much information as possible should be made available to the public, and as soon as possible;

3. Donald Trump should release his tax returns to clarify his business interests and obligations to any foreign entity;

4. If crimes were committed or if collusion is discovered, it must be prosecuted.

We need help. We are asking on cities around the country to organize. We are looking for volunteers to help secure permits, find speakers, and take care of the logistics to make this peaceful assembly matter.

Which Side Are You On, Jeff Klein?

1250 Waters Place, Bronx, NY  

Wonder why New York State isn’t standing up to Trump like California? 

Because our New York State Senate is a WRECK! Get this: Did you know despite the New York State Senate having a Democratic MAJORITY, it doesn't vote that way, thanks to the eight men and women of the rogue breakaway group known as the Independent Democratic Conference (IDC)?

Join Rise & Resist as we push our New York State Senators who are members of the IDC to act like real Democrats instead of Democrats in name only, so New York State can have a Democratic MAJORITY again!

This time, we're going after the man who started it all - Jeff Klein, who founded the IDC in a fit of wounded pride after the Democrats wouldn't make him their Senate leader. He's been amassing power ever since at the expense of true Democrats.

Care about Gerrymandering? Voter Suppression? Single Payer? Rent Control? Women's Reproductive rights? LGBT+ rights? These all happen at the STATE LEVEL. Which is why, with the oncoming Trumpocolypse, it is vital we get the majority back in the New York State Senate IMMEDIATELY. The left has ignored State level races for 30 years, focusing only on the Presidency and US Congress, which has allowed the Republicans to take control of most of the country's state legislatures, which has given them the power to gerrymander districts and disenfranchise voters. Time to put the kibosh on that. WE ARE WOKE!

IDC founder Jeff Klein and his minions like to say they group is for "getting things done" -- but all they're doing is blocking genuine progressive action in Albany for their own selfish power play.

Join us as we show up at Klein's office in the east Bronx to ask him, “Which side are you, Jeff Klein?”

To better understand what the IDC is, here is a recent Village Voice article:

Vigil for Accountability - Demand an Independent Investigation

All day at the Thurgood Marshall United States Courthouse in Manhattan, 40 Centre Street -- come for a shift, or come for the day.

This is a deeply serious moment. It calls for a serious response. 

You've read the headlines. You're watching as Trump openly works to obstruct justice. We must be present and persistent. We must show up in ways unprecedented to show that this movement, these demands for an independent, objective investigation of Russian interference and presidential abuse of power will not go away. 

We'll start with a day-long vigil on Tuesday. You can sign up for a shift (or shifts) here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfIrN9GMQ_bhbkRh0Sc7tpdQMNgn7n1VpHrEN-W0rF4wQMfLw/viewform?usp=sf_link

Imagine a hundred (or hundreds) of people quietly standing strong, holding up signs that say "TRUTH/INTEGRITY" and "ACCOUNTABILITY NOW" in front of our Federal Courthouse in New York... all day long. 

Not your typical step-and-chant: this is a somber vigil. 

We love all your amazing signage chockfull of puns and creativity, but for this we want a clear, unified visual statement/message of indisputable moral clarity. We will PROVIDE SIGNS both in hardcopy on the day of and via pdf on Monday. We only ask that you sign up and show up! 

From 5-6pm, for our final hour, the event will conclude with a rally and speakers; lineup TBD. 

We hope to see you standing in solidarity with the truth on Tuesday!
