You Can't Deport a Movement!

Screen Shot 2018-02-04 at 11.35.38 AM.png

Immigrant rights activist, Ravi Ragbir, is scheduled to report to the immigration building to be deported on February 10th. New Sanctuary Coalition and their allies are calling for an emergency rally to show solidarity with Ravi and immigrant communities across America.

This moment is urgent. This is bigger than any one case. ICE is escalating its attack on immigrants, and only our movement can stop them.

Bring your friends, your colleagues, your love and solidarity to demand a #NEWSANCTUARYCITY and show ICE that they cannot deport this movement.

Things are changing minute by minute. Ravi has a hearing on February 9th that could delay his deportation - but this rally against ICE will happen no matter what. For the most up to date developments about the rally on Saturday, text ISTANDWITHRAVI to 41411, follow us on Twitter (@NewSanctuaryNYC) and Facebook, and track the hashtags #IStandWithRavi and #NewSanctuaryCity.

The People's Hearing on Climate

On Wednesday, February 7th, people from across New York will descend on Albany to demand Governor Cuomo commit to funding an equitable transition to 100% renewable energy by making corporate polluters pay for the damage they're doing to our health and our planet.

RSVP HERE: http://bit.ly/bustoalbany

Governor Cuomo's recent executive budget doesn't go nearly far enough. So we'll be having a People's Hearing, concurrent to the official budget hearings, to call on Governor Cuomo to pass the Climate and Community Protection Act for 100% renewable energy and to implement a fee on big polluters to fund the transition. Then we'll march to Governor Cuomo's office to give him a giant $7.1 billion check--the exact amount he's leaving on the table by failing to commit to a climate polluter fee.

This is a critical opportunity to put direct pressure on the Governor, raise our profile in Albany, and lift up our campaign in the media. Plus, everyone who comes will get an NYRenews Tshirt. See you on February 7th!

Get Organized BK Full Meeting

Channel the energy and activism of the Women's March into tangible strategies and concrete wins in 2018. And it all starts with our next GOBK meeting, this Tuesday, January 30th from 6:30-9PM

We’re lucky to be opening the evening with Linda Sarsour, civil rights activist and a National Co-Chair of the Women’s March, whose powerful leadership and fearless advocacy have been emblematic of the resistance.  No doubt, Linda will be able to fire us up and give us the vision we need to end the Trump regime.

You’ll also be able to hear from Liuba Grechen Shirley. She’s a mother, community organizer, business and non-profit leader, and running in Congressional District 2 against Republican incumbent Peter King, and Zellnor Myrie, a Brooklyn lawyer, community activist, and an outspoken critic of the Independent Democratic Conference (IDC), running in State District 20 against incumbent IDC member Jesse Hamilton.

These three leaders will help us build a framework to take back the government from the GOP and our own State leadership away from the IDC, Plus, #GOBK’s Civic Activism working groups (who have been doing electoral work for the past year) will talk about what they’ve learned -- and what they are doing in the year ahead. So be sure to mark your calendars for the first #GetOrganizedBK meeting of 2018.

Our Lives Are On the Line, Chuck! #DreamActNow

Screen Shot 2018-01-22 at 7.42.30 PM.png

Join us outside Senator Schumer's house to remind him: Our lives are on the line, Chuck! We need a clean Dream Act Now--not in three weeks. Now. 122 Dreamers will continue to lose their status every day, potentially losing their jobs and being put at risk of deportation. Congress can’t continue to push the lives of 800,000 youth and their families aside. Dreamers are tired of false promises and need a legislative solution NOW!

Join us, Make the Road NY, United We Dream, CREDO Mobile, NY Working Families Party and more at the Grand Army Plaza Arch at 5:15, before heading over to 9 Prospect Park West.

New Yorkers Against the #TrumpShutdown

Screen Shot 2018-01-21 at 6.11.09 PM.png

Join New Yorkers to denounce the #TrumpShutdown. The shutdown is the clearest possible illustration of the failure of Trump's leadership: he's the one who ended DACA, blew up negotiations on numerous occasions, refused to prioritize aid for Puerto Rico, and keeps trying to move the goalposts on immigration, CHIP, and other issues, all while 122 Dreamers lose status every day. 

Join us, Make the Road NY, CREDO Mobile, NYIC, Empire State Indivisible, JFREJ, NY Working Families Party and more at 26 Federal Plaza (Broadway Side) in Manhattan at 12pm.

Drunken Civics - Pussy Grabs Back

Screen Shot 2017-12-29 at 9.38.03 AM.png

It's been a year hasn't it?

To celebrate the first year anniversary of the Womens March, visAbleblackwoman Productions presents: Drunken Civics ~ Pussy Grabs Back.

We are bringing together an all female ensemble of some of New York City's finest improvisers to celebrate the resilience, diversity and determination of the 21st century feminist movement.

We open the evening with our voter registration happy hour led by our Community Coalition which includes Indivisible Nation Brooklyn (IDK). Then comes an hour of comedy! The theme of the evening is "If I could Turn back Time". The first set will be a storyteller will share an experience harassment and the improv actors will flip the script and make it funny. The second set will be inspired by audience member's stories of coexisting with a crumbling patriarchy.

Enjoy complimentary glass of wine for happy hour and, feel free to BYOB.

The wins in Virginia and Alabama prove that our organizing efforts ARE working! It's time to unite forces and get to know one another in community and laughter so that we can continue working towards change for the next three years.

In addition to raising the joy factor, Drunken Civics provides the opportunity for New Yorkers to take immediate civic action because a percentage of each ticket purchased is donated to the US Virgin Islands Recovery fund. We do this because laughter provides healing; connection provides a space to learn; and compassion and donations, no matter how small, make a difference.

If you can't make the show, please make a donation to The US Virgin Islands Recovery Fund.

On Tuesday, December 19th, immigrant youth and allies will rally outside Sen. Chuck Schumer’s office to call on him to bring home a clean DREAM Act before the end of the year.

Last week, the immigrant rights movement led its largest-ever showing of civil disobedience in its history and the urgency for a clean DREAM Act is increasing daily, as more than 100 youth lose DACA every 24 hours.

As budget negotiations head to their conclusion, New Yorkers need Senator Schumer to use all of his legislative might to ensure a clean Dream Act is passed before the end of the year

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.

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:

  • Father Duffy Square New York, New York (map)

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!
