This is the time for you to act! NYCLT has been in Albany for weeks and we finally have a bill number (8409) in the Assembly. Now it’s vital that we put pressure on the Assembly to pass the bill. We still have an uphill battle in the Senate, so it’s important right now that we hold our Assembly members accountable. Simultaneously, there are several critical cases coming before the Loft Board Thursday, June 15, and we need bodies in the room to show the Board that loft tenants won’t let our members be pushed out of their homes. These are the two actions:
1. Call your Assembly members!
Please get on the phone with your Assembly members today and encourage everyone you know across the state to do the same. Look up your Assembly member here.
Here’s the calling script:
“Hello, my name is ________. I’m a constituent from _________, zip code ______. I don’t need a response. I am calling to express my support for Assembly bill 8409, the Loft Law Clean-Up Bill. I strongly encourage the Assembly member to vote for 8409 and to please urge Speaker Heastie to support the bill in end of session negotiations with the Senate and the Governor. If this bill doesn’t pass this session, many people will lose their homes!
Thank you for your hard work!”
2. Attend the Loft Board meeting!
Thursday, June 15th – 2:15pm
280 Broadway, New York, NY
Skip work, skip school, just do it! We need to fill the room with loft tenants – several people are faced with losing their homes and we need to put a lot of pressure on the board to table their cases until we can get changes to the law in Albany.
Together we can win this!
