New York, NY – On October 17, 2021 Fair Elections for NY and New York organizations working on the Build Back Better package gathered at Grand Army Plaza in Brooklyn, to urgently call on Senator Schumer, as the Majority Leader, to deliver on the host of critical issues facing our country, using every tool at his disposal to pass the Freedom to Vote Act, the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act, and the infrastructure bill and reconciliation package that make up the Build Back Better agenda.
Protecting our democracy. Climate justice. Pathway to citizenship. Taxing the super-rich. Affordable housing. Infrastructure. Care economy. And more. It’s time for Congress to deliver on these promises.
Activists say: We can keep saying pass this bill or that bill, but we know that everything on the progressive agenda will be blocked by Republicans utilizing the filibuster, unless Chuck gets the Democratic Senators to end the filibuster.
Concerned citizens participated on a rally to demand that Schumer delivers on voting rights, climate change, immigration, housing, infrastructure, the care economy, and more,
Members of Rise And Resist organized prior to the rally, a “Schmear The Filibuster” brunch table in front of Schumer’s apartment in Prospect Park, serving bagels, cream cheese, and coffee while passing flyers to the public.
