2018 Campaign Kick-Off: Meet NY’s Progressive Insurgency!
March 4 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Join us for a rally this Sunday at Medgar Evers College as NY’s leading activists and the WFP kick off the 2018 campaign season!
First we’ll hear from our U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, a leader in the fight for single payer healthcare and taking money out of politics, including boldly rejecting all corporate PAC money. Since she has been in the US Senate, she has being working to bring justice to men and women who are victims of harassment or assault, whether in the military, on college campuses and most recently in the halls of Congress.
Next we’ll hear from the progressive challengers to the IDC—a group of 8 turncoat Democrats who empower Republican senate leadership. This is the first time these insurgent candidates will share a stage, so join us to hear them discuss the progressive agenda they will advance in 2018 and beyond.
