C-27 RALLY 13- IT'S RECESS! CAN CHRIS COME OUT? final rally & post rally picnic

Start: Tuesday, April 25, 201711:30 AM

End: Tuesday, April 25, 201712:30 PM

Sigh...We've pushed & pulled, begged, serenaded, written, declared, dogged, marched & invited our congressman, Chris Collins, to no avail except we that we did it together in rain, snow, sunshine, bitter cold. We've reached the end of our commitment, resisting the first 100 days of the Trump admin. called for by MoveOn.org in early days.  Those who wish to continue rallying are welcome to but they will not be coordinated by C-27. Instead we turn our attention towards organizing a town hall in the fall when the SUNY Geneseo students are back.


Initially a town hall was planned for 6/4 but after attending the very well organized town hall event in Attica on 4/21 we decided that a month was not enough time to plan one and that it would be better to collaborate with students at SUNY Geneseo.

Please join us for a post rally celebratory picnic after our 4/25 rally. Informal & barely planned. Bring a dish to share or just your own lunch. Supply your own drinks & serving/eating utensils. Rain location - Wadsworth Library.

NO PARKING IN OFFICE LOT -
RALLY GOAL- secure town hall meeting with Rep Collins who, to date, has never had one. To that end please sign this petition -

COLLINS SAYS MOST OF US ARE NOT IN HIS DISTRICT - NOT AT OUR RALLIES! at this posting we've endured over 60 days of this administration. Are we exhausted yet? NO,  (well. yeah...but) we will keep this up through, at the least, the end of the first 100 days of the administration. And, btw, when you take an oath of office at the federal level, Mr. Collins, you don't just represent people in your district. The laws you pass affect the whole country and/or the world. So everyone is welcome at our rallies regardless of location and you need to answer to them as well. What a scaredy cat!


Come prepared to take action and meet others who are working to resist Trump's agenda. You can engage in your free time, and there are ways for everybody to participate. We’ll be encouraging our Members of Congress in Senate and House to represent us, not Trump. If we stand together, indivisible, we will win. Welcome to the resistance!
