Women's March on New York City

Join the world! On January 20th NYC (61st and 62nd Street on Central Park West at 11:30 EST) will raise its voice again to demand equality for all people at the 2018 Women’s March on NYC.

Why March?
Over the past year, basic rights for women, immigrants, LGBTQ+, people with disabilities, the religious and nonreligious, people of color and even Mother Earth have struggled to survive under the weight of the current administration. America’s First Amendment has been challenged and healthcare for millions has been threatened. We must stand together
to demand and defend our rights. Let your voice echo from the streets of New York City to the capital city. Show the world that red, white and blue are colors of tolerance. (Please click here for flyer and location map)

Say “No!” to a Constitutional Convention

Every 20 years, New York voters are asked whether the state should hold a Constitutional Convention. The question will be on the ballot in November 2017.

And we should answer, "NO."

A convention would cost taxpayers more than $300 million. That is a ridiculous price to pay to give special interests the opportunity to weaken public employee protections and slash government services. (please click here for flyer)

Message from the Administration
