NY Public Campaign Financing Commission Launches

August 21, 2019 @ 12:15 pm - 3:00 pm

The New York State Public Campaign Financing Commission will hold its first meeting on August 21, 2019 at 1 p.m. in New York City. The meeting is open to the public, and this is our first opportunity to show the commission how much support there is for creating Fair Elections in New York!

Please join us outside of the CUNY Graduate Center (365 5th Avenue, New York, NY) starting at 12:15pm to rally in support of Fair Elections for New York. We’ll hold a press conference at 12:30pm and head into the building for the meeting at 1pm.

New York has a big opportunity to lead the nation in the fight against big money and open up our democracy to truly serve all communities. The Governor and the Legislature set up a commission tasked with creating a public campaign financing system by Dec. 1 that incentivizes candidates to fundraise from small donors, by matching small contributions with public dollars – making small donations worth more, and enabling people of color, immigrants, and working-class New Yorkers to increase their political power.

There will be no public comment opportunity at Wednesday’s meeting, so let’s show our strong support at Wednesday’s rally outside the meeting. Hearings will be scheduled across the state to allow for public comments in future.
