Friends of hers decided to hnor her life by wearing orange - the color that hunters wear in the woods to protect themselves and others. On June 2nd, 2015 - what would have been Hadiya's 18th birthday - more than 200 organizations and influencers asked people nationwide to join them by wearing orange to honor Hadiya's life, along with the lives of other victims and survivors of gun violence.

Rally Against Cuomo’s Nuclear Bailout

  • Office of Governor Cuomo

Like Donald Trump, Governor Cuomo is subsidizing corporate polluters at our expense.

Cuomo is behind a $7.6 billion bailout of three upstate nuclear power plants.

Join us in sending a message to Cuomo: Don’t waste our money on dangerous nuclear power!

Climate, Jobs & Justice Accountability Forum

  • 2 W 64th St

EN ESPANOL DEBAJO

Looking for a way to take local climate action after the national People's Climate March? Please join hundreds of your fellow New Yorkers at a citywide forum for Climate, Jobs & Justice!

With our national administration taking us backwards in the fight against climate change and inequality, it is now even more vital that NYC step up our defense of the environment. Our city produces massive pollution which continues to choke our communities and threaten our livelihoods. We can fight both of these moral crises at the same time - but only by urging our top elected leaders to take comprehensive action, en masse and in person.

Join us for a mass people's interview of NYC Mayor de Blasio, PublicAdvocate James and Comptroller Stringer. Come learn about the issues that NYC needs to tackle locally, hear our leaders' views, and hold them accountable to taking the bold policy action we need to protect our people and our city from the threats of climate change.

Please be sure to spread the word, invite your communities and networks to participate, join our coalition as a co-sponsor, and be sure to RSVP here: https://actionnetwork.org/events/climate-jobs-and-justice-accountability-forum

This event is co-organized by:
The People's Climate March - NY, 350.org, 350NYC, ALIGN-NY, Bronx Climate Justice North, Faith in New York, Food & Water Watch, Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), New York Communities for Change (NYCC), New York Lawyers for the Public Interest, Sane Energy Project, Transform Don’t Trash NYC, WeACT for Environmental Justice and the Working Families Party (event co-sponsor list in formation).

******************************

Vamos a transformar la energía de la Marcha de Clima y la resistencia contra Trump hacia un impacto político en Nueva York!


¡Únete a una entrevista del Alcalde de Blasio de NYC, del Abogado Público James y del Contralor Stringer y sosténgalos responsables de tomar la acción política que necesitamos!


Con Trump llevándonos hacia atrás en la lucha contra el cambio climático y la desigualdad, ahora es aún más vital que NYC presione a sus líderes. Nueva York produce una contaminación masiva del clima, y ambién está dividida por la desigualdad. Podemos luchar contra ambas crisis morales al mismo tiempo, instando a nuestros líderes elegidos a actuar.


Únase a cientos de sus compañeros neoyorquinos en este importante foro para detener el cambio climático, crear buenos empleos y garantizar la justicia para todos.

Children's March NYC

  • Cadman Plaza

Let’s give those who can’t vote yet a voice, and a chance to feel empowered! This is a march for independent thought. This march is a space for kids to talk about issues in their own terms - and to teach them that they can have an influence on their future. We're hoping to create a space for this community to celebrate inclusivity - of people, ideas...everything. Join us as we celebrate our children's vision of the future and encourage independent thought for our youth!
#childrensmarchnyc

We're working to create a repository of resources for talking with our children - of all ages - in a way that gets them to ask questions - questions that go beyond what they're hearing in the news, in their school yards, and at their kitchen tables. We are working with educators and other professionals from a variety of backgrounds and interests to support this endeavor. Stay tuned for more - and please let us know if you've come across articles, curriculum suggestions, or anything that has resonated with you.

We're planning to hear from some inspired kids and teens and sing along with several entertainers at the rally. If you’d like to help out in any way, let us know.

Next Generation Now: Children's March NYC / People's March for Truth and Transparency

  • Cadman Plaza

UPDATE: THIS EVENT HAS JOINED WITH Next Generation Now: Children's March NYC

 

On MAY 13th, we march to DEMAND an independent Russian ties investigation of #45 and other member of his inner circle.
We are march against propaganda, lies, and inciting of violence by #45 by spreading these lies and propaganda to lesson the "impact" of his Russian ties and (hopeful) Treason investigation, the lies about the wall and the racism being incited, the lies about our Muslim brothers and sisters, etc- to his core base.
At a time when journalism is called "Fake News" in attempts to delegitimze our Press and exclude them from the conversation in an attempt to turn nearly half the nation against the truth, we are precariously on the ledge of the rabbit hole to full blown fascism.


These are dangerous times, and without a free press able to report truth to us, even a facade of a Democratic Republic is gone.
Please join us.

From 12 to 1 we will be listening to speakiers in Bryant Park, as well as a musical performance. We are honored that Congressman Paul Tonko is one of our speakers!

At 1 p.m. we march! Please see map below (in the discussion) for exact route. 

The march will wind back to Bryant Park at approximately 2:30 with closing speeches.

I can use ALL of your help contacting press to cover the event, doing live video feeds, working on a particular vignette or song that you've come up with~! Let's make this exciting.
Inviting http://www.davidmoriya.com/ and our other awesome photographers back, as well as #GetorganziedBK and #OurFlag and even Bus For Progress. Let's make it work this time!
As well as March Chorus NYC and http://www.artsforart.org/ and Artists Speak Out

Saturday May 13- Starts at Noon: Please see map below for exact route. Permits being applied for.
Sound system being purchased.

Please use this link to donate directly to costs via our ActionNetwork page, if able! https://actionnetwork.org/fundraising/march-on-new-york-keep-us-marching

As it should be, our march is a GRASSROOTS effort. It belongs to you as much as it does to me. Please get involved!

DeFund DAPL NYC Divestment Day

  • Union Square Park

Divestment can put an end to the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) just as it has ended injustices, like South African apartheid, in the past. 

Seattle and San Franciscio recently divested billions of dollars' worth of transactions from DAPL-funding banks, and Mayor De Blasio recently came out in support of divesting NYC's pensions from offending banks.

Let's build momentum for city- and state-wide divestment from banks funding the DAPL by closing our accounts together on May 13th!


Sign up here to divest: https://goo.gl/forms/PWjJTFrds5B8XjEB3


HOW TO DEFUND DAPL:

1) OPEN an account at a socially responsible bank or credit union. 

Find out which banks are and aren’t involved in DAPL atgrassrootsactionny.com/divest

2) TRANSFER everything to your new account. 

Switch over all direct deposit info and auto-payments to your new account. Edit the auto-payment info for your rent, utility bills, apps, and/or subscriptions. Double check a recent bank statement to make sure everything has been transferred to your new account.

3) WITHDRAW everything but a “protest penny” from your old account and transfer it electronically to your new account. 

This makes life just a liiittle more difficult for your old bank before you close your account.

4) DIVEST from your old bank on #DivestmentDayNYC

Let your old bank know why you and your peers are closing your accounts with a letter from grassrootsactionny.com/divest. Then, publicize your action on social media, and call on your city council members and state legislators to divest the city’s and state’s pension funds, too!

Event Cancelled: NYC 4 CEDAW Day of Action

  • New York City Hall

On May 12, NYC4CEDAW will host a Day of Action! 200 community members from all parts of NYC are encouraged to attend. 

**We plan to meet at Brooklyn Bridge Park at 9:30 AM and walk across the Brooklyn Bridge to rally on the steps of City Hall.

OBJECTIVE:
We look to pass a local ordinance in NYC, which honors and reflects the obligations outlined in The Convention on the Elimination of all Forms of Discrimination Against Women, to properly support and fund programming to positively benefit women in all five boroughs.

The City Council and the Mayor’s Office have a shared vision to evolve the Commission on Gender Equity. We recommend passing a bill which links the Commission on Gender Equity to the CEDAW framework and which appropriates the necessary fiscal and personnel resources to make manifest what is already a crucial underpinning of our widely lauded and publicized Safe Cities Agreement with UN Women.

NYC Protest: Firing of James Comey..Drive Out Trump/Pence Regime

  • Trump Tower

Come to Trump Tower to protest the firing of the FBI director James Comey. 

5PM - Trump Tower

The firing of FBI director James Comey is an outrageous escalation in the un-relenting onslaught of the fascist moves from the Trump/Pence Regime. It reveals theTrump/Pence's regime total disregard of the rule of law and due process & justice. We must not wait it out. Take to the streets, demand Trump, Pence, Session and the whole regime be driven from power.

Read the Full Statement from RefuseFascism.org

The firing of FBI Director James Comey is an outrageous escalation in the unrelenting onslaught of fascist moves from the Trump/Pence Regime. This firing further reveals the Trump/Pence Regime's total disregard of the rule of law, due process and justice. Firing FBI Director Comey is an ominous and dangerous move – another in a succession of steps towards consolidating fascism.

Echoing Richard Nixon's firing of Special Prosecutor Archibald Cox in 1973, Donald Trump's firing of the FBI Director who is reportedly investigating the Trump campaign and administration is a desperate attempt to obstruct justice and tighten their grip on power. It is a gross violation of the norms that were established through Watergate. People must mobilize, take to the streets, and demand that Trump, Pence, Sessions, and their whole regime be driven from power. Rallying people all across the country to do this is the mission of RefuseFascism.org

RefuseFascism.org's Call to Action states that the “Trump/Pence Regime is a Fascist Regime.” 

Again and again, they have shown that they “fully intend to shred political and social norms with catastrophicconsequence.” And, that “Fascism is not just a gross combination of horrific reactionary policies. It is a qualitative change in how society is governed.” It requires knocking down obstacles to its power from the people or within the institutions of the government. 

We must not try to “wait things out” hoping that a special prosecutor, or the 2018 midterm elections will deal with the grave danger that the Trump/Pence Regime poses to humanity and the planet, including threatening use of nuclear weapons. We must act together now, strengthen every act of resistance, and build towards the time when millions of people take to the streets day after day and night after night Demanding to Drive Out the Trump/Pence Regime.

Trump Tower Divestment Teach-In and Rally

  • Trump Tower, Public Terrace, 5th floor
  • We love NY. And we’d love New York to lead on fighting climate change - by cutting its ties to the dirty oil, coal and gas companies controlling Trump's White House. Those same fossil fuel and pipeline interests are driving the rollback of climate action on the federal level. Our communities, especially low-income communities of color, will pay the price. 

    We're fighting back - and we need New York City leaders to do the same: NYC Comptroller Scott Stringer must stop pouring billions of dollars into fossil fuel companies and pipeline developers through our city's pension fund investments.

    The big oil, gas and coal companies and pipeline developers aren't changing, but by divesting NYC government can stop fueling their climate-destroying ways.  Comptroller should stop investing public money in the destruction of our collective future.  Join us in Trump Tower’s public garden to #TeachTrump about climate change inside his own home and to demand Comptroller Stringer stand with New Yorkers and not Donald Trump and climate destroyers. 

    Speakers will include NYC climate & justice leaders in our movement. Expect music, speeches, chanting, teaching, merry-making and colorful signs!

    Organized by the #DivestNY coalition, which includes 350.org, 350NYC, New York Communities for Change (NYCC) and the New Economy Project.

    • DeWitt Clinton Park

    Donald Trump is coming to New York City for the first time since his inauguration. In the last 100 days, he's threatened to deport our neighbors, take away our healthcare, reject refugees from our shores and give even more tax breaks to billionaires. Not to mention spend millions of our money to protect Trump tower. 

    Join us on May 4th to show President 45 exactly how New Yorkers feel about his presidency! #NoTrumpNYC!

    We ask that you wear white in honor of past immigrant rights movements, civil rights movements (see Silent March of 1917), and suffragettes. And being that it's May 4th (Star Wars Day), we'll show we're on the light side of the force! Bring your Statue of Liberty signs and Jedi lightsabers!

    Meet at 11th avenue side of DeWitt Park. We will be rallying there!

    *Exact timing TBD -- we'll finalize once we know exact time of his visit. More info here: http://www.nydailynews.com/news/politics/trump-meet-australia-pm-nyc-trip-president-article-1.3100002

    ===============================

    Trump is coming to NYC May 4th. We are going to let the entire world know what New Yorkers think about his violent, racist, misogynistic, ignorant and hateful policies. 

    Among other things, Trump wants to cut funding for NIH, the EPA, National Parks, Health Care, Meals on Wheels, the National Endowment for the Arts, and Public Schools in order to pay for massive tax cuts for giant corporations and the wealthy, a deportation force, an ineffective border wall, and weapons.

    Be LOUD and be ANGRY. This will be a non-violent protest but it will not be a passive one. Bring signs, bring noisemakers, bring friends. Marching bands encouraged. Dance parties requested. Game face required.

    Climate March on NYC

    • Washington Square Park

    Sister March to the People's Climate March in Washington D.C.

    Donald Trump is a threat to the future of our planet, the safety of our communities, and the health of our families.

    The new administration has attacked the hard-won protections of our climate, health, and communities, and the rights of people of color, workers, indigenous people, immigrants, women, LGBTQIA, young people, and more.

    We've fought back with a wave of protests larger than at almost any other point in history — let's make sure that we mark the 100th day of his presidency with another mass action that stands up for our communities.

    Join us on April 29th at 12pm at Washington Square Park. Let's march together.

    For flyers and posters, check out our google drive. https://drive.google.com/open?id=0BxjZ1ChZwR0EUHcxV3hhbGZObkU

    Rally and March: Stop The Raids @ New York City Hall

    • New York City Hall

    Join family members and grassroots community groups as we rally and march against NYPD and federal "gang" raids that are devasting communities of color across the city. 

    Under the banner of fighting "gangs", local and federal law enforcement agencies are conducting militarized raids and takedowns that lead to the over-prosecutions of young people from poor neighborhoods of color – especially in public housing. More than 1,000 people were arrested in over 40 such takedowns last year alone. Most never see trial because they're pressured to take plea deals and are vilified through the media before they've even seen a judge. 

    We rally on the 1 year anniversary of the massive NYPD and federal takedown, which include the Department of Homeland Security, centered in the Eastchester Gardens Houses in the Bronx, the largest "gang" takedown in NYC history, resulting in 120 indictments. Young men and families from the #Bronx120 have spoken out but have been punished with solitary confinement and other forms of retaliation. 

    We rally to defend families from across the city who've not only had to deal with pre-dawn military-style raids but also RICO and conspiracy charges and even efforts to displace them from their housing. It is by no coincidence that areas targeted for gentrification have also been targeted by raids. 

    Authorities believe that by simply stamping young some residents as "gang bangers", that no one will advocate for them or help their families. Some young people have been swept up in indictments in large part due to the loose gang criteria, designed by police, that imply whomever associated with alleged "gang members" or wears certain colors are involved in a complex criminal syndicate. Police and prosecutors are also using their social media to build cases. This is a recipe for wrongful convictions and follows in the footsteps of the era of mass incarceration and fearmongering politics of the 'Super-predator' days.

    There are solutions to community violence that work to help people and that don't rely on raids and incarceration. We can build communities instead of targeting them with raids and collective punishment.

    #StopTheRaids and end the abuse of RICO/conspiracy laws.

    Join #CLOSErikers on the steps of City Hall!

    • City Hall

    The #CLOSErikers campaign launched on the steps of City Hall in April 2016. One year later, we have grown in power and numbers, and achieved concrete wins. Mayor de Blasio has committed to shuttering the Rikers Island jails for good, and the Lippman Commission's final report recommended closure, as well as concrete policy reforms to reduce incarceration in New York city and state. 

    We should all celebrate these important wins, but our work is not done! must continue to rganize, pressure takeholders, and make sure that impacted communitie emain at the enter of the process. We must ensure that the closure of Rikers happens in a timely manner, and results in a significantly smaller, more just and humane system overall.

    Join the #CLOSErikers campaign, back on the steps of City Hall, as we celebrate this historic moment, and double down on our efforts to #CLOSErikers and #buildCOMMUNITIES!

    RSVP@CloseRikers.org to let us know that you're coming!

    Times Square Armenian Genocide Commemoration

    • Times Square

    Join thousands to commemorate the 102nd anniversary of the Armenian Genocide at the crossroads of the world in Times Square, New York, on Sunday, April 23, 2017 from 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm.

    While a century has passed, the Armenian Diaspora continues its unyielding efforts to remember, to honor and to educate the world about this catastrophic event in Armenian history that claimed the lives of close to 2 million Armenians -- a piece of history that goes unrecognized to this day by the Turkish government.

    Let us come together in solidarity alongside noted politicians, academics and artists to show the world we will continue to remember and to honor the victims of the Armenian Genocide while advancing our fight towards global recognition. 

    The annual Armenian Genocide Commemoration in Times Square is sponsored by the Knights of Vartan and Daughters of Vartan, a national
    fraternal organization, and co-sponsored by the Armenian General Benevolent Union, Armenian Assembly of America, Armenian National Committee of America,
    Armenian Democratic Liberal Party, and the Armenian Council of America; participating organizations include the Diocese of the Armenian Church, Prelacy of the Armenian Church, Armenian Missionary Association of America,
    Armenian Missionary Association, Armenian Evangelical Union, Armenian Catholic Eparchy, and several national Armenian youth organizations.
