Call Rally to Speaker Adams - NO MORE 24!

No More 24! Rally and Hunger Strike Planned in NYC

In NYC, home attendants, mostly immigrant women of color, can be expected to work 24-hour shifts for days at a time, causing stress, illness, and unacceptable time away from their own families. And they're not even paid for the full 24 hours! 

NYC Council Member Chris Marte has a bill to end this practice (24 No More), but so far Council Speaker Adrienne Adams refuses to bring it to the floor for a vote. After several months of protesting at City Hall to no avail, 18 workers have committed to a hunger strike starting this Wednesday, March 20. 

You can help! 

  • A growing coalition is organizing to support women during the hunger strike, and Saturday, March 23rd, at noon, is designated Democratic Club Support Day. Please join everyone at City Hall. Bring your club banner!
  • Sign up for Downtown Nasty Women call rally on Wednesday, March 20 to demand Speaker Adams and your NYC Council Member support Chris Marte's bill.
