We Need Johnson’s Support!
We need YOUR help to call on Corey Johnson, Speaker of the New York City Council, to support Resolution 747A so that NYC can go on official record pressing Congress to move money from the $740 billion U.S. military budget to aid municipalities like NYC in our time of need.
Join us in using phone calls, emails and social media to impress upon Corey Johnson the importance of his active support of Resolution 747A. We’ve learned that bombarding the council office with emails and phone calls DOES work. It will be hard for the Speaker to ignore us when our issue is constantly being raised via email and other forms of contact.
The city-wide coalition to Move the Money has launched a call-in campaign for Mondays: but you don’t need to wait for next Monday! Take one of these actions TODAY. Mark your calendar to follow up every Monday until we win.
- CALL — Call the Speaker’s Legislative Director Jeffrey Baker at 212-788-7210 or District Office 212-564-7757. Leave a voicemail if you don’t get through to a staff member, and try again later. With this script.
- SEND an EMAIL — to SpeakerJohnson@council.nyc.gov with this script, or write your own.
- TWEET — @NYCSpeakerCoJo: We need jobs, education, and healthcare, not militarized police and endless wars. MOVE THE MONEY from WAR to OUR COMMUNITIES. City Council, pass RES 747A now! #MoveTheMoneyNYC
