February Community Update

Introduction of “Vehicular Violence Accountability Act” To Crack Down on Dangerous Drivers:

With violent injuries to pedestrians and bi-cyclists at an all-time high in New York City, especially in Manhattan, I have joined with State Senator Tim Kennedy of Buffalo, Chair of the Senate Transportation Committee, to sponsor the Vehicular Violence Accountability Act (S. 7298/A. 9605).

Join me at 5:30 today in marching against hate violence

The increase of hate violence targeting the gay community in Manhattan was marked most recently by the murder last week of a 32 year old gay man in the West Village. All New Yorkers must stand together and let the world know: discrimination and violence are unacceptable in New York City.

There is a march today, Monday, May 20, 2013 starting at 5:30pm at the LGBT Center, 208 West 13th Street, which will conclude with a rally at West 8th Street and Avenue of the Americas. Please attend the march and the rally if you can.
