Keep Bannon Out of New York

  • Midtown Manhattan — exact location TBA (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

 

On December 14, Steve Bannon will be in NYC fundraising for Rep. Lee Zeldin. It's Bannon’s first fundraiser for a House Representative, and we have to show up big if we're going to make it his last. 

After Steve Bannon was ousted from the White House (we helped do that!), he set his sights on Congress with a plan to elect extremists who support Trump and his white supremacist agenda. 

We need to make it clear that Steve Bannon and his white supremacist agenda are NOT welcome in New York or in Congress.

Help us bring our message to Rep. Lee Zeldin and every Member of Congress: if they're willing to threaten our communities by giving a platform to Steve Bannon's hateful agenda for their own political gain, we're going to do everything in our power to hold them accountable. 

Share and invite your friends, and sign our petition:

More details to be announced!

Cuomo Walk The Talk: Move Off Fossil Fuels

Screen Shot 2017-12-03 at 9.20.27 AM.png

On December 14, Governor Cuomo is holding a fundraiser in Manhattan – and we’ll be outside, urging him to get New York off fossil fuels.

We’ll be calling on Cuomo walk the talk on climate change by stopping fossil fuel infrastructure and leading a transition to 100 percent renewable energy. The fundraiser features special guests Bon Jovi and Bill Clinton, but we’ll be rocking our own rally for clean energy!

New York faces an onslaught of pipelines, power plants, and other projects that transport and burn fracked oil and gas, including the Williams pipeline, the Pilgrim pipelines, the CPV power plant, the Albany micro-grid and much more. Governor Cuomo must be a true climate leader by halting these dangerous projects and moving New York to 100 percent renewable energy.

We will be joined by housing affordability activists who will be calling on Cuomo to support housing policies that prioritize and deliver real affordability for the most economically vulnerable households.

This rally is hosted by NYRenews and sponsors include INBK, New York Communities for Change, Food & Water Watch, Sane Energy Project, Empire State Indivisible, 350Brooklyn, Riverkeeper, Surfrider NYC, 350NYC, United for Action, NY Renews, NYC Chapter of Democratic Socialists of America, Three Parks Independent Democrats.

MeTooRallyNYC

  • Father Duffy Square New York, New York (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

A simple hashtag - #metoo - spoke for millions who were sexually abused and opened the floodgates for us to speak out, be seen, and support each other. Silenced no longer, we rise to give voice to our experience and to change the tide of how sexual abuse victims are treated in America. Let us stand and be counted together to put an end to smearing anyone who dares to speak out, an end to questioning why we wait so long after our bodies, hearts, souls and psyches first suffered. Let us rise together and be counted. #metoomarchnyc

Do It Again, Dan! : A Solidarity and Recommitment Rally

Hosted by Fight Back Bay Ridge and Staten Island 4 Change
at 265 New Dorp Lane in Staten Island.

Next Tues., Dec. 5th, scores of activists from across the county are descending on Washington DC for a mass march and rally against the Tax Bill. Many will be conducting civil disobedience to “stop business as usual” in the Capitol. It’s possible that the House may be holding a vote on the Senate bill that day. Our press rally will be in solidarity with those down in DC.

Also, by bringing all our forces together, both across NY-11 and the broader city, we’ll be joining in solidarity with each other to oppose the tax bill and call on Rep Dan. Donovan to do the right thing for ALL NYC residents, our health care system, our city, and our state. We’re all in this together!

The NY-11 Healthcare Coalition is calling on Rep. Dan Donovan to stand strong in his opposition to the GOP Tax Bill when it comes back to the House next week. We will thank Donovan for voting against the House health care repeal bill in May and the House tax bill in November. Please come support this event and bring a friend!

Climate Solutions Town Hall

Brooklyn College, 2705 Campus Road, Brooklyn, NY 11210

*FREE EVENT - ADVANCE REGISTRATION REQUIRED*

As part of the Superstorm Sandy fifth anniversary week of action, 350Brooklyn and Brooklyn College Urban Sustainability Program invite you to our upcoming Town Hall on climate change. The Climate Solutions Town Hall on October 24th is an important opportunity to demand that our state legislators provide meaningful leadership and take aggressive measures to address the crisis of global warming.

Our panel includes representatives from New York Renews, the New York City Environmental Justice Alliance, Turn the Tide and Sean Sweeney, Director of the CUNY International Program for Labor, Climate and Environment. All State Senators and Assembly Members representing Brooklyn are invited, and we look forward to engaging them in this critical conversation.

As Trump succeeds daily in his war on the environment--dismantling regulations that safeguard the land, water and air, protecting the fossil fuel industry and accelerating climate change--states must take action and our representatives must be held accountable. Rising temperatures, devastating storms, and increased flooding are all major problems in Brooklyn and New York State, and will only get worse as we continue to heat the planet. Join us in urging our elected officials to build resiliency in our communities, and make New York a global leader in the fight against climate change. On the 5th anniversary of Hurricane Sandy, we put our state politicians on notice: engage for change!
