You’ve probably heard by now that on Thursday Dec 13 the Senate voted to pass S.J. Res. 54. Thanks to everybody who made calls to our Senators. Now it’s important to thank them! Please call again now to thank Sen. Gillibrand (who was an early co-sponsor) and also to thank Sen. Schumer, who voted in favor. Cong. Switchboard: 292-224-3121 or use their local numbers: Gillibrand: 212-688-6262 or Schumer 212-224-6542.
However, particularly as it appears that similar legislation will be blocked in the House until the new Congress convenes, it’s crucial that we continue to keep this issue in the public eye.
Every Saturday, 11:00 am to 12:30 pm: Join this ongoing weekly vigil at Union Square, SE corner of the park (opposite the atomic clock). Organized by the Catholic Worker Movement.
