A Town Hall For Democracy: Fair Elections For New York!

  • Washington Irving High School 40 Irving Place New York, NY 10003 (map)

A healthy democracy prioritizes and empowers the people it represents. A healthy democracy welcomes average citizens contributing to make their communities better. But for far too long, big money politics and the systematic disenfranchisement of voters has been chipping away at those ideals.

We have the power NOW to re-ignite and re-engage the people and build a stronger democracy, but we need our elected representatives to lead the charge.

Join us for a Town Hall For Democracy where elected officials from our Federal, State, and City government will speak to the opportunities we have to get big money out of politics, to give everyday New Yorkers a bigger voice with small donor matching, and to lead the way on voting rights. It's time for Fair Elections for New York!

Doors open at 1:00 PM. Town Hall begins at 1:30 PM. Seating will be first come for ticket holders.

Featuring Congressman Jerrold Nadler and Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney, as well as State Senate Deputy Majority Leader Michael Gianaris, Chairman of State Senate Committee on Elections Zellnor Myrie, State Senator Liz Krueger, State Senator Brian Benjamin, State Senator Robert Jackson, State Assembly Member Richard Gottfried Additional speakers to be announced.
