Stay Updated on Amazon
In November 2018, Amazon announced its intent to build one of its HQ2s in Long Island City, Queens, after receiving $3 billion in tax subsidies from New York State and City, a helipad, and a boutique process that avoids NYC's local land-use review procedure.

Bring Ranked Choice Voting to NYC
Ranked Choice Voting (RCV) allows voters to rank candidates for office in order of preference, rather than only voting for one candidate. If no candidate achieves greater than 50% of the vote in the initial count, this ranking system allows for an automatic recounting (or “instant runoff”) to determine the winner of the election, based on all voters' order of preferences. RCV has been used successfully in Maine, San Francisco, Minneapolis and across the world -- and it's time to bring it to NYC.
Shape Civic Engagement in NYC

The scientific evidence is overwhelming: we are choking our planet with plastic. Let’s work together to reduce plastic waste and help New York City make the right choice between #PlanetOrPlastic.
