NYC events: Pridefest, W Train Funeral, SB 1070 Protest and more!


PrideFest, W Train Funeral, SB 1070 Protest & more!

Summer's here, and we can just about see November elections on the horizon. Greater NYC for Change and our partners are swinging back into action and gathering our collective resources to continue to fight for New Yorkers.
Join us for 2010 voter registration drives, to push for comprehensive immigration reform, and show support for legislation towards a green energy economy.
And let's not forget last year's success — this week is a good one for health care reform! President Obama announced regulations for the implementation of a Patient's Bill of Rights, which will officially take effect on September 23, 2010.
