Latino leaders, activists, and voters from across NY are coming together to pledge to vote the Working Families Party ballot line on Election Day. Watch this video to see why, then join us and pledge to vote Working Families next Tuesday, November 4th.
There is no question who is to blame for the failure to pass the NY DREAM Act. There is no question who is to blame for the failure to raise the minimum wage. The Republican state Senate majority in Albany has continually blocked progress on these and other key issues.
But this Election Day, we have the chance to change all of that. We can vote to flip the state Senate. We can vote to make our movement and our party stronger. And we can vote to send a message to all of our leaders in Albany who have promised to fight to raise the minimum wage, pass the NY DREAM Act, and so much more: that our issues matter, our votes matter, and we want promises to turn into action.
Our vote on the Working Families Party ballot line is a vote to stand with DREAMers, it’s a vote to stand with low-wage workers, and it’s a vote to hold all of Albany accountable to the priorities of working families.
That’s why elected officials including Congresswoman Nydia Velazquez, Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito, Sen. Adriano Espaillat, Sen. Gustavo Rivera, Sen. Jose Peralta, Asmb. Felix Ortiz, Asmb. Victor Pichardo, Asmb. Francisco Moya, Council Member Julissa Ferreras, Council Member Carlos Menchaca, Council Member Ydanis Rodriguez, Council Member Antonio Reynoso, Council Member Ritchie Torres and more are joining together to say in one voice: join us in voting on the WFP ballot line this year.
When we stand together on Election Day, I know we will be heard.
Thank you for all you do, and see you at the polls,
Secretary, Working Families Party
Co-Executive Director, Make the Road Action Fund
