#ProudlyResisting at the March of Pride!

This year, the March of Pride is honoring the Resistance by inviting groups to march in the lead. Please bring signs! The official hashtag is #ProudlyResisting

Our staging area is 41st Street between Park and Madison Avenues (enter from Park Avenue as 5th Avenue will be closed).  Our check-in time is 10AM and we ask that you arrive by 9:45AM.  We are Group 10 and our name, GOBK/Indivisible Nation BK will be posted at our staging location on the block.  The March steps off at noon and takes about 1 - 1.5 hours to complete.   We will march down 5th Avenue, turn right at 8th Street and then disperse to the right at Christopher and Greenwich.  The March will be televised and our group will be announced at several points. This is a wonderful  opportunity to show our Pride as we Resist and Persist.

Other logistics: there will be bathroom facilities in/near the staging areas.  Bring food and water, but no large backpacks. Please observe a moment of silence at 11:58am before the March begins.

Facebook event for RSVP coming soon!

Countering Democratic Rollback: A Talk with Lincoln Mitchell

Want to learn how to better identify, and fight back against, the breakdown of democracy in the Trump era?  Are you outraged by Trump every day, but uncertain about what and how to fight?

Please join Indivisible Nation BK in conversation with Lincoln Mitchell, an expert on democratic rollback around the world for a talk and Q & A. Mitchell, a scholar and author of four books, including The Democracy Promotion Paradox (Brookings, 2016), will draw on his work studying democratic rollback and propose smart strategies for defending American democracy in the Trump era.  

Mitchell will distinguish between policies that we abhor vs. threats to our most basic democratic freedoms; fights that perhaps could be sidestepped vs. battles that must be waged; and how we can fight to save our country in the most deft and effective ways.   

Brooklyn Society for Ethical Culture at 53 PPW.

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.

Courtney Maginnis (Brooklyn Comedy Festival, College Humor, @courtmaginnis)
Jaboukie Young-White (The Fader, Clickhole)

Tommy McNamara (The Onion, Seeso)
Ziwe Fumudoh (Baited with Ziwe, The Onion)

Where: At Thoughtworks, 99 Madison Ave 15th Floor

Please spread the word, attend the event, and, if you can't make it, please consider making a donation to the cause anyway.

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!
