Tell 5 People About the IDC
This action was suggested by Indivisible Brooklyn: Educate at least five fellow New Yorkers about the Independent Democratic Conference. The IDC is a group of eight state senators who run for election as Democrats but vote as Republicans, consistently preventing any progressive bills from becoming law. Many New Yorkers don't know this group exists, so pick five and let them know about it. You can share our fact sheet and this video voiced by Edie Falco.
