Tell Albany leaders: Reform Atlantic Yards now!

On Saturday, June 11, community members, civic organizations and elected officials came together to hear about how legislation now before the State Assembly and Senate can help make Atlantic Yards accountable to the public. Assemblyman Hakeem Jeffries explained how, against the lobbying efforts of developer Forest City Ratner, a bill to require the Empire State Development Corporation to form a subsidiary for Atlantic Yards oversight has cleared two key Assembly committees, and is one step away from going to the floor. But as State Senator Velmanette Montgomery warned, it’s critical that New Yorkers make their voices heard because “we are dealing with an environment where money trumps almost everything. It is only the voters who are going to be able to match the leverage."

If you weren’t able to join us on Saturday and sign a letter to the State legislative leadership, please take a minute to email each of them now by clicking the links below. It just takes a minute, and your voice will make a big difference!
