We here at Staten Island Community News are excited to share a Bay Ridge effort to encourage Congresswoman Nicole Malliotakis to #SealTheDeal and invest in NY-11. We encourage anyone from Staten Island who can make it, to join the rally tomorrow, August 19th at 6pm, to support our NY-11 friends across the bridge!
Constituents will rally at Rep. Malliotakis’ Brooklyn office to demand investments in green jobs and infrastructure. Members of climate, environmental, transportation, and community groups in Representative Malliotakis’ district will demand a federal budget that prioritizes climate, care, jobs, and justice. Malliotakis has voted against infrastructure and transportation funding bills in the past. These “no” votes include keeping federal funds out of the MTA and no stimulus aid for our district’s small businesses.
Tomorrow’s action is one of 8 in New York State and 42 across the country calling on Congress to #SealTheDeal on a $3.5 trillion budget reconciliation package that promotes green jobs and infrastructure. The New York State actions are being coordinated by the Green New Deal Network and NY Renews. NY Renews is a growing coalition of community, labor, environmental justice, and faith-based organizations fighting for climate justice policy,
