NY State Senate Protest – Which Side Are You On, Tony Avella?
February 24 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm| Free
New York State Senator Tony Avella (11th district, Queens) is a member of the rogue breakaway group known as the Independent Democratic Conference (IDC) – which caucuses with the Republicans, giving them the majority.
Join Rise & Resist as we push Senator Avella to act like a real Democrat. Elected to the Senate in 2010, he joined the IDC in 2014. He is chair of the Children and Families committee and the vice-chair of the Environmental Conservation committee – although he co-sponsored the recent bill that killed the 5-cent bag tax. He gets paid extra $$ for being in the IDC.
Join us as we show up at Avella’s Bayside office to ask him, “Which side are you, Tony Avella?”
