The 2014 election cycle is here!

Our city government has a new mayor, and his administration is already making its mark. And later this year our state will elect a new assembly and senate, and our county will elect new district leaders and a fresh county committee. It's a big year for New York! We'll prepare by organizing on behalf of strong progressive candidates, educating ourselves about current issues, and helping advocate on behalf of solutions that we can believe in.

This March, we'll be holding our endorsement vote for the congressional race in NY-7, and jumping right into petitioning. Join our mailing list, see our Events tab above, and follow us on Facebook and Twitter for up-to-date information.

We look forward to seeing you very soon!

2014 Exco

(Our new executive committee: Theo, Lacey, Annie, Esteban, Andrew, and Rachel)
