On Friday, July 23, 2021, in the blistering heat, dozens rallied for Reparations in New York State. Speaker, Assemblyperson Charles Barron, explained how the Historic Reparations Bill in the New York State Assembly passed and now is up for a vote in the New York State Assembly.
Attendees were urged to call New York State (NYS) Senate Majority leader, Andrea Stewart-Cousins and demand the bill be passed. Senator Stewart-Cousins NYC Office number is (914) 423-4031.
We demand that NYS Senator Andrea Stewart-Cousins, leader of the Senate Majority (Democratic Party) call a special session of the Senate to vote on the reparations bill that passed in the assembly.
The Democrats have a supermajority in the NYS Assembly so there is no reason this reparations bill can’t pass if Andrea Stewart-Cousins tries. First, she has to call the NYS Senate back from vacation to vote.
