Carlina Rivera Fundraiser Tomorrow! Carlos Menchaca Day of Action Saturday!

Tomorrow: Please Join Us For A Fundraiser for Carlina Rivera!

Tomorrow – Wednesday, August 2nd – we're proud to be co-hosting a fundraiser for Carlina Rivera, an up-and-coming young star in New York City politics whom we endorsed in her race for City Council last week.

We hope you'll come and meet Carlina in person, enjoy a drink and hors d'oeuvres on us, and make a donation to her campaign for the open seat in the City Council's 2nd District, which extends from Murray Hill through the East Village and Alphabet City.

There's more info on our Facebook event page – please share it! We'd also appreciate it if you would RSVP to Tatiana Jorio at tatianajorio@gmail.com or (917) 583-0897, so we can have an idea of headcount.

There are only a small number of open seats up for grabs in the City Council in this election, and electing Carlina will ensure that the 2nd District is represented by a safe-streets and pro-transit champ. Please join us Wednesday and help make it happen!

Carlos Menchaca Office Grand Opening and Day of Action, Saturday, August 5!

Speaking of our endorsees, Brooklyn City Council Member Carlos Menchaca, who was one of the very first candidates we backed in 2013, and whose re-election effort we endorsed last week, is holding a campaign office grand opening and day of action this Saturday, August 5.

Carlos, who has been a real standard-bearer in the City Council for complete streets, is facing one of the toughest re-election battles of any sitting Council Member.  He's been there for all of us who care about making sidewalks and bike lanes and crosswalks safe from his first day in the Council, and now it's time for all of us to be there for him.

So we're calling all volunteers to come out this Saturday at 10 a.m. to hear directly from Carlos as he opens his campaign office, and to pitch in for a day of action to help him kick off  his ground game in earnest. Even if you can spare just an hour or two, it will mean a lot in making sure this livable-streets champion wins another four-year term in the City Council.

See you there!
