WHAT IS MOVE THE MONEY – NYC?

We are a coalition of some 60 New York City organizations— labor, peace, community, lay, civil rights, tenants—who have come together to urge passage of NYC Council Resolution, 747A. The resolution was introduced in February 2019 by Councilmember Ydanis Rodriguez. Since then it has received the sponsorship of 17 or the Council’s 51 members. MTM-NYC has collected over 3,000 postcards addressed by constituents to their Councilmembers, urging passage of the resolution.

WHAT IS RES 747A?

If passed, it will put our city on the record opposing bloated Pentagon war budgets that rob the city of urgently-needed funds to carry on vital public programs: public education, mass transit, sanitation, affordable housing, health care—you name it. The resolution also mandates in-depth public hearings so that New Yorkers and the Council can now just how much money goes missing by the lopsided spending priorities in Congress.
We say MOVE THE MONEY…
  FROM WAR TO OUR COMMUNITIES!
   PASS RES 747A NOW!
