Rise and Resist is organizing an action on Thursday, June 15th at 6pm outside of Governor Cuomo’s Manhattan office (633 Third Avenue): The IDC is Failing New York. This will be the culmination of a series of protests against the Independent Democratic Conference (IDC), a rogue breakaway group that gives the Republicans a majority in the State Senate.
With the end of the legislative session looming, it’s time to shine a spotlight on all the progressive bills that they have blocked. To do so, we want to bring together activists representing a range of issues and constituencies. We’ve chosen to gather outside Cuomo’s office because of his complicity in Albany’s dysfunction – and because it’s a relatively central location for protesting all 8 IDC members at once! Please join if you can!
