On one out of every four days, raw sewage over flows in New York. According to the NRDC, as little as one tenth of an inch of rain will overwhelm the city’s sewers and sewage treatment plants.
The NRDC is leading efforts to insure the safety of New York City’s waters by reducing sewage and pollution runoff and to enforce the provisions of the federal Clean Water Act. Sign the petition to Mayor de Blasio and city leaders to keep sewage out of NYC waterways. Please note that we can add our own messages about how overdevelopment exacerbates these problems. Thank you for lending your voice!

LIC Coalition’s Response to A Better Deal

We very much want to win the 2018 mid-term elections and we absolutely must win the next presidential election in 2020. Our democracy depends on it. But victory is only possible if we are willing to boldly and unapologetically speak to our values, rooted first and foremost in human rights, fairness, justice and compassion for all. As so aptly stated by the late Senator Wellstone, “We all do better when we all do better.” In this same vein, the Party also must speak to voters’ most fundamental concerns, explain clearly how a Democratic majority will translate into a better future not only for this country and all Americans, but for themselves and for their families. To this end, we believe that a return to a Democratic majority can and should be achieved with a united electorate. As borne out repeatedly throughout the history of this country, Democratic values are universal values, after all.
