February 11 is Indivisible National Day of Action - No Money for the Wall and #NoTrumpShutdown
What to do?
February 15 is the deadline for an agreement about border security. Trump still wants his wall and has not taken a second shutdown off the table. All Members of Congress need to hear from us to ask them to fund the government with no new funding for Trump’s wall, ICE, or CBP. Call and/or fax.

Green Light Campaign - Albany
Campaign to Win Equal Access to Drivers Licenses for Immigrants in NY
Right now, undocumented immigrants cannot obtain driver’s licenses in NY State. This makes people vulnerable to ICE arrest and hinders their ability to access healthcare or other daily needs to care for themselves, along with their families. Join #GreenLightNY in Albany for this important legislation
Postcards and Calls to NYS Representatives
It's not too late to send Valentines and thank you's to our New York State representatives. Our State Senators and Assembly people need to hear from us! (even if you miss Valentines Day, it's never too late to say thank you)
Our State legislators are being barraged from far-right constituents, fighting back against the progressive legislation that's been voted in over the last few weeks. They need to hear from their constituents who support this legislation. Numbers matter - the numbers of cards, phone calls, emails, faxes.
These can be short and sweet messages on topics such as:
Reproductive Health Act
We also need to reach out to our representatives to ask that they vote to REMOVE PART R from the Governor's proposed "Good Government and Ethnics Reform" bill, which proposes lowering the threshold for "being a lobbyist" from $5000 to $500. That affects concerned citizens who are volunteering time, not lobbyists.
