Dearly Beloved Friends (and foes of the IDC) – You are invited to JOIN US for a New Orleans Style FUNERAL MARCH in ALBANY on the last day of the legislative session to mourn the death of progressive legislation in New York State at the hands of the Independent Democratic Conference. EIGHT SENATORS who were voted in as DEMOCRATS but align with the GOP giving Republicans leadership and control of the Senate (even though the majority of NYS Senators are DEMOCRATS).
MARCH with MUSICIANS as we follow pall bearers & COFFIN as it winds outside the state CAPITOL and HEAR inspiring EULOGIES commemorating the
BILLS whose lives were sadly cut short in the Senate.
It will be a MEANINGFUL and SPIRITED event, capping a long and frustrating season of advocacy by so many groups trying to move our great state forward despite GOP control of our senate thanks to those eight turncoat Democrats in the IDC.
Wear black, carry a parisol/umbrella and embrace the jazz funeral spirit
as we mourn what COULD HAVE BEEN.
This action is co-sponsored by the Rockland Citizens Action Network, Indivisible Rivertowns, True Blue NY, NoIDCNY, NYPAN, Alliance for Quality Education, Lower Hudson Valley Progressive Action Network, & Citizens Action
