When We Stand up Together, We Win
RUNNING ON PEOPLE POWER
We are at a moment in history where we need dramatic shifts in priorities and plans. Our system is brittle and subject to collapse at the first disruption. We see that now as a virus destroys our businesses and our livelihoods, swamps our healthcare facilities, and turns our world upside down.
But this is just the beginning. The climate crisis is knocking at our door. We must get serious about implementing bold policies that prepare us for food shortage and economic insecurity. We do not have time for slow incremental change. We do not have time for the status quo. We must create a more resilient system now.
We have a once in a lifetime opportunity as we emerge from the coronavirus crisis to create a better world. To do that we have to stand together and make massive shifts in priorities that don’t come at the expense of each other’s needs. But we have a lot of work to do. We can give every New Yorker who wants it a good job working to secure our future. The work is here, the ideas are here, the resources are here, and the people are here.
I have spent my life mobilizing, empowering and activating people to make big changes. I have the experience and the passion to go to bat for us in Albany. Together we can make real change.
There is no limit to what an energized citizenry can do. The time has come to do it. Let's get to work!
