Background:

During the pandemic, working-class and poor New Yorkers, black and brown people, and immigrants have borne the brunt of sickness and job loss: 
• Over 1.4 million New Yorkers are facing eviction
• 60% of New Yorkers have lost income
• 1.2 million New Yorkers are uninsured
• 25% of NYC residents face food insecurity 
Our communities were already underfunded before the pandemic — and now, the Governor is making our pain worse by slashing 20% in funding for our housing and healthcare, our schools and teachers, our towns and cities. While we've been enduring this pain, New York's wealthiest have grown richer:

• NY's billionaires grew $77 billion richer during the pandemic -  to a total net worth of $600 billion
• The top 1% of New Yorkers have the lowest tax burden of any income bracket
• Governor Cuomo cut taxes on the wealthiest New Yorkers, corporations, banks, multi-millionaires’ estates, yachts and private jets over the past decade.

Our NY State Legislature and Governor Cuomo can stop budget cuts and protect the future of New York by ending tax breaks for the wealthiest New Yorkers and investing in our New York. Join us this Thursday to learn more and what you can do.
