Racial Justice is on the Midterm Ballot
Whether you vote early or on Nov. 8, be sure to flip your ballot over and vote YES on Ballot Proposals 2, 3 and 4 to demand racial equity and an end to systemic racism in New York City government. While change does not happen overnight, the three amendments to the NYC Charter give city government unambiguous instructions to pursue racial justice and equity for all New Yorkers:
- Prop. 2 adds a Preamble to the NYC Charter, a statement of values and vision.
- Prop. 3 requires far-reaching structural changes to the NYC government.
- Prop. 4 requires the NYC government to measure the true cost of living and thus the actual costs of meeting essential needs.
