Invest in Our New York Phonebank
Start: Saturday, February 20, 2021• 1:00 PM • Eastern Standard Time (US & Canada) (GMT-05:00)
Legislators across New York State are hearing from the people that we want to tax the rich and invest in schools, hospitals, good public services, housing, and more. We are working with organizations across the state to let people know about the six bills that would tax the rich so we can avoid the cuts to healthcare, education, social and jobs services that Cuomo is talking about. Then we directly transfer the people we reach to leave a message on their legislators' answering machine.
The pandemic has hit most of us hard but billionaires have made more money than usual due to stimulus policies and zero interest loans. But that money isn't trickling down to the rest of us. Meanwhile, unemployment is high, hours are low, people are way behind on rent and facing evictions. The rich got rich through exploitation so we need to take that money back.
Sign-up for a shift today so we can pass the Invest in Our New York Act in the next 6 weeks. It has the support of many state legislators already and we need to push it over the line in this era of Democratic supermajorities in both the State Assembly and State Senate. Democrats claim to be on the side of ordinary people. Now is time to prove it! For this Saturday we are joining with NYC DSA's phonebank on Zoom and still calling CNY residents so it's a great opportunity to work with others in this statewide coalition!
