RALLY TO RESIST VOTER SUPPRESSION

2:00PM

We demand EARLY VOTING & AUTOMATIC VOTER REGISTRATION for New York voters.

We’re taking action to demand Governor Cuomo make New York a leader in election reform, not an example of voter suppression. This year's state budget must include essential voter reforms – early voting and automatic voter registration. Join us to take a stand!

WHAT: Rally to Resist Voter Suppression
WHEN: Sunday, March 19, 2 PM
WHERE: Battery Park, NYC

Join Common Cause/NY, SEIU 32bj, NY Immigration Coalition, TWU 100, 2 Hours A Week, Make the Road New York, Hispanic Federation, Public Citizen, Citizen Action New York, New York Working Families, DuBois Bunche Center For Public Policy, Hugh L. Carey Institute, NYPIRG, NYC Votes, and invited Members of Congress Hakeem Jeffries, Yvette Clark, Nydia Velazquez, and NY Assemblymember Latrice Walker, NYC Councilmember Ben Kallos, Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer and others to demand election reform now!

We reject the false assertion that voter fraud is widespread. The real problem with America’s elections is extensive voter suppression. New Yorkers believe that voting is the lifeblood of democracy and demand that Governor Cuomo include essential voter reforms – early voting and automatic voter registration – in the state budget that will be adopted by April 1st.

We need you at this event, bring your family, friends & neighbors! It’s time for New York’s elections to join the 21st century and to end our state’s shameful record of low voter turnout.

We’ll see you on March 19th.

Thanks for standing up for voting rights!

Battery Park, NYC
