More than a dozen local activist groups are hosting this rally. The event page says, "Join New Yorkers to denounce the #TrumpShutdown.

Share Voter Registration Info
If you know people who might not be registered -- or who might need to update their registration due to a change of name, address, or political party -- let them know they can easily get the process started on their phones. Tell them to text P2P (which stands for Power to the Polls) to 788-683. They'll be connected to the correct Rock the Vote page for their zip code.
