Call for Full Membership Activism NOW - Attached is a complete list of all the current members of the New York State legislature who have either voiced their support for passage of the New York Health Act (NYHA) or lack of support during the past session of the Legislature. With these current numbers - assuming the Assembly stays the same - they have enough votes there to pass this Major piece of legislation - legislation that will saves thousands of lives and reduce the debt burdens on all New Yorkers. And we are currently ONE Democratic Senator short of gaining a majority in the Senate. (Not counting on any Republican support) Do what you can do by calling, writing, lobbying those that need such assistance - to express your desire to see this law passed in the upcoming Session of the New York State Legislature.

Democratic Reforms

We want to create a system in which Lincoln’s dream of a “government of the people, by the people, and for the people” becomes a reality.  We support policies that will lead to more transparency in government, weaken the influence of the donor class, encourage higher voter turnout, and provide greater citizen participation in the process.

Economic Justice

We want to create a more balanced and robust economic landscape that works for everyone.  We want equal opportunity for those in the working and middle class to raise the standard of living and foster upward mobility.   We believe poverty can and must be eradicated.

Environmental Justice

We want to create policies that address the reality of global warming, single greatest threat facing our planet, and save the environment for future generations.  We believe that clean drinking water is a basic human right and that government policy must prioritize water rights over corporate profits.

Social Justice

We want to create a society which respects the inherent dignity and worth of every person, regardless of race, religion, ethnicity, country of origin, gender, or sexual orientation.   We will defend the rights of the disenfranchised and work to ensure equal protection under the law.

Let's change together...
