City Hall Rally for a "People's Budget"

VOCAL-NY joined allies from the May 12th coalition and the New York City Council Progressive Caucus for a rally at City Hall on June 21st to announce a People’s Budget that raises revenue to prevent the worst cuts proposed by Mayor Bloomberg. View our proposed revenue solutions on the Strong Economy for All website.

We have been focused on restoring more than $8 million in funding cuts Mayor Bloomberg proposed for supportive housing, rental assistance and nutrition programs serving low-income New Yorkers living with HIV/AIDS, along with preserving harm reduction programs.
