​​We are against repealing the Affordable Care Act.  We want to see the New York Health Act move out of committee in the New York State Senate and pass, bringing single-payer healthcare to all residents of New York State.​​​  ​We have a subcommittee on this topic, and new members are welcome.  Please send us a message through our "Contact Us" form if you are interested in joining this subcommittee.

​The Trump Agenda
​We resist the Trump agenda.  We believe Trump's agenda is racist, authoritarian, and corrupt, and it must be stopped.  We focus on local, defensive congressional advocacy and demand that our own local members of Congress embrace progressive values.

​Environment/Climate Change
​We are passionate about protecting our environment, educating ourselves about the realities of climate change, and taking actions to limit our carbon footprints.  We have a subcommittee on this topic, and new members are welcome.  Please send us a message through our "Contact Us" form if you are interested in joining this subcommittee.


​Voter Registration
​We are very aware of how critical it is to our democracy to protect voting rights.  We are strongly against voter suppression in any situation.  If voter registration is your passion, please join our sister Facebook group NY 22 Votes.

​We support a comprehensive, streamlined, and simple process for refugees and immigrants to become U.S. citizens.  Many of our members volunteer for the Mohawk Valley Resource Center for Refugees.  We are thrilled that the city of Utica passed a Welcoming City resolution in June.  We know that diversity is a strength in our community.

​World Affairs/Russia/The Wall
​We believe that Russia interfered in the 2016 election and stand in solidarity with Bob Mueller's special investigation into Trump's campaign connections to Russia.
​We are against the building of a wall between the U.S. and Mexico.  Donald Trump's proposed wall is both wasteful of tax payer dollars and widely considered by security experts to be completely ineffective.  #bridgesnotwalls.

​Women's Issues
​Our Women's Issues subcommittee explores all topics of concern to women.  Donald Trump and the Republican Congress continue their assault on women every time they try to limit funding for teen pregnancy prevention and Planned Parenthood, which provides primary care to millions of women.  Women deserve equal pay, a living wage, accessible child care, and equal protection under the law.  If this is your passion and you would like to join this subcommittee, please send us a message through the "Contact Us" form.
