End Family Detention -- Civil Disobedience in DC

Screen Shot 2018-06-23 at 10.12.37 AM.png

On Thursday, June 28th, Women’s March and partner organizations are organizing a mass civil disobedience in Washington, D.C. We call on women from all communities to descend on our nation’s capital and demand the safety and freedom of immigrant families and children. We will put our bodies on the line to demand an end to this administration’s zero-tolerance policy of automatically criminalizing undocumented immigrants and locking children in prison camps. 

Learn more and register to join us at www.endfamilyseparation.us

*You MUST register in order to receive details about training times, meeting location and any other information pertaining to the action*

Marching is no longer enough, not when this administration is enacting policies that violently detains families, incarcerates children in prison camps and automatically criminalizes their parents. Not when we see photos and videos of children held in child prison camps. Not when we hear their cries for their parents and see their fear and trauma. 

We can not allow these atrocities to go unchallenged. The time is ACT is NOW. 

On June 28, we take escalated action in D.C. demanding this administration #EndFamilyDetention. On Saturday, June 30, we will rise up in cities across the nation to say #FamiliesBelongTogether. These children and families are counting on us. . 

*Direct action training and legal support will be provided to all women participating in nonviolent civil disobedience*

Cuomo Walk the Talk on Climate Change -- in Albany!

Screen Shot 2018-04-06 at 11.07.44 AM.png

Governor Cuomo says New York is a “leader” on climate change and that it is “gross negligence” not to address climate change. He also says that he has taken “decisive action.” However, the reality is that New York is drastically behind on our renewable energy goals. Only 3% of New York’s electricity comes from wind and solar. Cars, trucks, buildings, and other sources (aside from the electric grid) make up 80% of our emissions — but we're falling behind on cutting back there, too. New York continues to be a conduit, storage, and dumping ground for the fracking industry, harming us and our neighboring states. This not only contradicts our goals but the principles of Environmental Justice, human rights, and stewardship of the Earth.

On April 23rd, join this energetic and family-friendly march and rally outside the Capitol building that will include an opportunity to participate in a civil disobedience action. This will be the largest climate rally ever directed at Cuomo in Albany. Join us in demanding that #CuomoWalkTheTalk and get New York #OffFossilFuels!

Let NY Vote Rally for Early Voting

Screen Shot 2018-03-06 at 2.15.06 PM.png

Send a clear message to Albany: New Yorkers want Early Voting funding in the budget!

37 other states have Early Voting and it's time that New York does, too. Governor Cuomo did his part - he put $7 million in his proposed budget just like we asked! Now we have to do our part by turning out in numbers to support keeping that funding in the state budget! We need to convince our State Reps to accept the money and include Early Voting in the final State Budget. Negotiations are going on throughout March behind closed doors in Albany, so they need to hear from us loud and clear!

Join us in NYC on Sunday, March 18th at 2pm in Foley Square to Rally for Early Voting.

We'll be joined by elected officials and our partners from the Let NY Vote Coalition. Bring your signs, bring friends and family! New York voters will be heard.

ICE Out of the Courts Rally + March

IMG-9500.JPG

After months of protesting, multiple walk-outs and rallies across the city, and hours of advocacy, Chief Judge Janet DiFiore has still not heeded the call of New York City's immigrant communities to prohibit ICE agents from entering NY Courts.

The time has come to act. This policy of continued cooperation with ICE puts our clients in danger, robs them of their right to due process, and makes the Office of Court Administration complicit in Trump's horrific mass deportation agenda.

On March 15 at 4pm in Foley Square, Legal Aid Attorneys, Public Defenders, Unions and Community Groups will come together and march to the Office of Court Administration to demand that the Chief Judge take immediate action to protect our clients!

Tell Albany: Wall Street Must Pay its Share

IMG-9503.JPG

Join Strong For All, PSC-CUNY, VOCAL-NY, NYCC, CWA District 1, the New York State Nurses Association, the National Employment Law Project, the Roosevelt Institute and the Fiscal Policy Institute this Friday March 9 at 1PM . We'll be gathering at the Stock Exchange to call for a reboot of the existing stock transfer tax as part of this year's state budget, with a particular focus on the explosion of stock buybacks in the wake of the GOP tax scam cuts we all fought together last year. 

Companies That Use Their Federal #GOPTAXSCAM Windfalls to Buy Back Stock and Enrich Investors Should Pay Their Fair Share of Taxes in New York!

As Albany legislators and Governor Andrew Cuomo work to finalize a state budget by the end of the month, we will demonstrate in support of a Stock Buy Back Transfer Tax. Corporations are using their #GOPTAXSCAM windfall to buy back stocks rather than to grow the economy. The Stock Buy Back Transfer Tax is a way to ensure that one percenters who benefit most from the new federal tax law pay their fair share in New York. A .5% transfer tax on stock buybacks could raise $2 billion a year in New York for affordable housing, healthcare and quality Kindergarten - CUNY public education.

New York State currently REBATES $14 billion a year in Stock Transfer Taxes to brokers. This is part of a campaign to reinstate part of that tax.
