As you know, the NY State legislature passed a budget early last week. And while there are small measures of improvements and in some cases reform, the vast majority of critical issues facing poor and Black and Brown communities - criminal justice reform, affordable housing, public education and tax fairness - were ignored or even worsened.
It's difficult to understand the nuances and intricacies of many of the policies included in the budget - like Raise the Age - especially when our Governor and members of the Independent Democratic Conference are busy running victory laps for coming in last.
So this Sunday, April 23 at 5:00PM, we're bringing together leaders from Alliance for Quality Education, NY Communities for Change/Alliance for Tenant Power, Citizen Action NY, Stronger for All, Women's March on Washington, Justice League - and more - to host a special Facebook Live Town Hall "The Truth About the Budget".
We hope you'll join us for what promises to be an important conversation with critical leaders in the fight for equality and liberation for our communities.
