MONROE COUNTY Canvassing Training

Let's learn how to canvass our neighbors and local businesses to raise awareness and garner support for important issues. We'll have prepared materials, we'll work in pairs, and it'll be fun!

We're specifically focusing on the issue of The Surety Bill:  New York State requires that shippers of hazardous materials by water must cover the liability of a catastrophic accident. Shippers of hazardous materials by rail are under no such obligation. With the number of train cars that run through Monroe County every day (approx. 200) that are full of volatile fracked crude oil, this is absolutely unacceptable.

While the state Assembly has passed a Surety Bill THREE times (which extends this insurance requirement to railroads), the legislation has never even had a hearing in the state Senate. This must change! Join us at this training to get started!
