Senator Jesse Hamilton: Caucus with Democrats or Resign!

This petition had 233 supporters

Sen. Hamilton was voted in as a Democrat and he needs to act like one! In November 2016, he joined the Independent Democratic Conference (IDC), a group of NY State Senators elected as Democrats but aligned with Republicans. They allow Republicans to BLOCK:

  • DREAM Act to provide tuition assistance to children of undocumented immigrants
  • Women’s Equality Act to codify Roe v. Wade in New York law
  • GENDA to protect LGBT New Yorkers from discrimination
  • Voting Reform including early voting and automatic voter registration
  • Criminal Justice Reform including “Raise the Age"
  • Campaign Finance Reform and Ethics Reform to clean up Albany corruption
  • Single payer health insurance
  • Tenant protections to keep housing affordable and reversing Vacancy Deregulation, which has removed tens of thousands of rent-controlled and rent-stabilized apartments necessary for working class families and seniors

As voters in his district, we demand that Jesse Hamilton immediately return to the Democratic Caucus or resign from office to allow for a special election.
