March On Billionaires

July 17, 2020 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

Thousands of New Yorkers are months behind rent. Thousands of children, families, adults do not have survival income.
Those who are undocumented or recently incarcerated and work in the cash economy are completely excluded from unemployment benefits. We can pass a billionaire wealth tax to create emergency income for all.
Governor Cuomo continues to protect the wealth of billionaires over the wellbeing of New Yorkers most in need.
Join over 100 carwashers, sex workers, day laborers, domestic cleaners and immigrant workers excluded from unemployment benefits fasting to #FundExcludedWorkers.
We will honor Eric Garner, a Black man who was murdered by NYPD in 2015 and name the billionaires who fund and enforce the racist system of policing.
We are joined by Batala New York, an all women Afro-Brazilian sambae reggae percussion band, many of whom are excluded workers themselves.
We will have testimony from directly impacted community members and break the fast, served by

Street Vendor Project at the Office of the Governor.
