We cannot allow this pandemic to deepen inequality in our state. This is not a time to balance the budget on the backs of children and families. [INSERT HANDLES] vote no on any budget that doesn’t #FundNYSchools & #MakeBillionairesPay!
NY’s 112 billionaires with a combined wealth of $525 billion, nearly 5 times our entire state budget, need to pay more to protect our schools and hospitals. [INSERT HANDLES] go back to the negotiation table and demand to #MakeBillionairesPay to invest in our communities and #FundNYSchools!
Stand up for children, families, educators and healthcare workers. We need to #FundNYSchools #CancelRent & #NoBailRollbacks #NoMedicaidCuts. [INSERT HANDLES] reject any budget that cuts our health care, schools, and rolls back bail protections!

The only winners in the #NYbudget right now are New York’s billionaires and ultra rich! Tell your State Senator and Assemblymember to VOTE NO on this budget that fails to protect our most vulnerable New Yorkers bit.ly/VOTENO20
The #NYbudget is devastating. It cuts school funding. @NYSA_Majority & @NYSenate are still considering cuts to hospitals in the middle of #COVID19, rolling back the historic bail reform changes that keeps innocent New Yorkers out of over crowded jails. And there are still no rent protections. Tell legislators to VOTE NO! bit.ly/VOTENO20
Our representatives are in Albany to work on behalf of the people, not millionaires and billionaires! They must VOTE NO on any budget that harms our communities! bit.ly/VOTENO20
