rally Union Sq. 9/15

Yesterday, Uion Sq., we enjoyed an early evening rally organized by NOW which included speaking guests such as State Senator Tom Duane and numerous musical guests including "Disappear Fear". See photos below.

We have limited time as the final vote on Roberts' nomination will be decided no later than Sept. 30th.

It can make a difference to contact our NY State Senator (Schumer). Although senators pay attention more to their constituents than to someone from another state, we can still contact senators in other states. Or better yet, CONTACT SOMEONE YOU KNOW who lives in another state (check the list below) and URGE them to write and or to call their state senators with a message that we don't approve of Roberts' track record on civil rights, women's rights, and workers rights. The following list consists of senators who make up the committee reviewing Roberts nomination.
