Protest: Which Side Are You On, Marisol Alcantara?
March 24 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
New York State Senator Marisol Alcantara is a member of the rogue breakaway group known as the Independent Democratic Conference (IDC) that gives the Republicans a Senate majority. Join Rise & Resist as we push Senator Alcantara to act like a real Democrat and stop blocking progressive legislation – like the NY Health Act, which would ensure universal health coverage in our state.
Alcantara represents the 31st district, which includes Inwood, Washington Heights, and a narrow swath of the Upper West Side. Much like the voters in her district, Alcantara is progressive on many issues, which makes her participation in an conference that keeps progressive legislation off the floor of the Senate especially confounding.
Elected to the Senate in 2016, Alcantara is one of the newest IDC members. She is chair of the Labor committee. And she gets paid extra $$ for being in the IDC.
Join us as we show up at her office (5030 Broadway, near 213th street) to ask her, “Which side are you on?”
