INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S DAY

Today is International Women's Day. A coalition representing dozens of grassroots groups and labor organizations is organizing a number of actions in support of labor campaigns, immigrants' rights, sanctuary campuses and more. At 4 p.m. there will be a rally in Washington Square Park. At 5:30 p.m., activists will march to Zuccotti Park with stops along the way in front of the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory site, the Varick Street Immigration Detention Center, Stonewall, City Hall, the African Burial Ground and the former slave market, various financial institutions funding the Dakota Access Pipeline, and more. This rally is only one of many events planned for today. Click here for full listing. 

MUSICIANS MUST TAKE ACTION! 
 
This week, we ask you to provide input to the city's Department of Cultural Affairs for the #CreateNYC plan, and challenge you to take our State Constitutional Convention challenge: call your state representatives and tell 10 people why you're against the Constitutional Convention! This convention could open our state constitution to high-powered, well-financed, anti-worker and conservative special interests, and the risks simply outweigh the rewards. At the federal level, we are asking people to contact their representative about the Affordable Care Act. For background, tools, scripts and more, click here.
