SunTrust bank: Stop Financing Immigrant Detention Facilities Now! #BackersofHate
SunTrust is one of the remaining banks that bankrolls oppression. A 2019 data brief shows that SunTrust bank has had a major role in financing private prison companies. We demand that SunTrust joins JPMorgan Chase and Wells Fargo in ending their ties with this inhumane industry. Our communities will not rest until all banks that are involved in the suffering of our communities cease their relationships with CoreCivic and GEO group, the companies responsible for terrorizing people of color and immigrant communities.
Sign on to urge SunTrust to STOP financing private prisons that profit from our communities’ pain!Take Action!
Dear Senator, Thanks for voting for the NY Dream Act – support Driver’s License too!
The NY Dream Act finally passed both in the Assembly and Senate! Now it’s time for Albany leaders to become champions for their communities and support #GreenLighNY to allow undocumented New Yorkers to obtain a standard driver’s license, register and insure their vehicles, and drive safely without fear that simple traffic violation will put them in the crosshairs of President Trump’s anti-immigrant agenda.
The NY Dream Act is just the beginning! We’re now going to keep pushing full force for all our other community priorities! Call your Senator and ask them to support Driver’s Licenses for All now!Call Now!
Gov. Cuomo: Driver’s Licenses Now!
Immigrant families cannot wait for protection any longer. It is time for New York to restore access to undocumented New Yorkers to obtain a driver’s license, register and insure their vehicles, and drive safely without fear that simple traffic violation will put them in the crosshairs of President Trump’s anti-immigrant agenda.
Sign the petition to demand that Governor Cuomo includes driver’s licenses for all in the 2019 state budget now!Take Action!
Mayor de Blasio: We Demand That NYC Include Delivery Workers In The Framework By Legalizing E-bikes!
Most e-bikes in New York City, particularly those used by tens of thousands of low-wage, predominantly immigrant workers, are excluded from this new legal clarification. This means that workers are still fined up to $500 solely for operating an e-bike in New York City, and their bikes are confiscated – leaving them unable to provide for their families while their cases linger in court. There needs to be a clear way for workers to convert their e-bikes and make them legal. It’s time to #DeliverJustice!
Sign this petition to demand Mayor de Blasio #DeliverJustice on behalf of New York City’s working cyclists!Take Action!
Governor Cuomo: Create One Fair Wage for Tipped Earners Across New York State!
Did you know that workplaces that pay people in tips are getting away with paying New Yorkers LESS THAN the minimum wage?
Restaurant servers, bussers, hosts, bartenders, car washers, and nail salon techs have rallied to end the subminimum wage that keeps them in poverty. To make game-changing progress for 400,000 New York residents who live off tips, we need to outnumber the corporate fat cats.
Sign our petition to Governor Cuomo to voice your support for One Fair Wage for tipped earners in New York!Take Action!
