Sign Up for March 4 Hunger Action / ES 2 lobby day
Please join us on Tuesday, March 4th for our Legislative Education & Action Day in Albany. Join us to fight for:
Þ Universal Health Care; Supporting expansion of Medicaid and CHP
Þ Raising the Welfare Grant; improve Welfare to Work
Þ Real Jobs for Low-Income New Yorkers; and
Þ Fair Taxes, not service cuts
We will also be urging the legislature to support funding for emergency food programs, affordable housing ($400 million for Housing Opportunities Program), education and training opportunities, and affordable childcare.
With a projected $4 to 6 billion budget deficit, we need to make sure that essential services are maintained!
Please take the time to come with us, make your voice heard at the State Capitol, and take our message to where the decisions are being made! Let’s pack the buses to Albany and tell our legislators that we demand economic security for all New Yorkers!
