Call Relay to Schumer
A coalition of New York Indivisible chapters is doing a call relay to Senator Chuck Schumer's office, to encourage him to remain strong and make no compromise on the unnecessary border wall. Your participation is important because Trump allies have been organizing constituents to flood offices with calls in FAVOR of the wall. Sign up for a time on the call sheet linked below; phone numbers and a script are provided.

Reminder: Join the (Hate-Free) Women's March on NYC*
Meet up: 10:30 a.m. at the bus stop on the northwest side of 86th and 2nd
Entrance to march location: 72nd & Columbus
*The Women's March Alliance in NYC -- which has run the New York march since 2017 -- is 100% independent from the anti-Semitic leaders of D.C.-based "Women's March Inc." Women's March Alliance is committed to inclusiveness. "Women's March Inc." is trying to cause disruption by holding a competing march downtown; make sure you wind up at the hate-free march by coming with Indivisible UES! We DO need to be out in the streets protesting this shameful government shutdown. Signs to that effect are encouraged. Dress warmly; wear comfortable shoes; bring snacks, water, and any medication that you may need.
