Why this petition matters

When we first started this petition it was to show support for Amazon HQ2 in LIC. Now it's to show Amazon we want them back. 

Read the open letter in the New York Times  signed by NYC community members, industry leaders, and political figures, all signing in support of Amazon, and an appeal to welcome the company and Jeff Bezos, back to New York City.

It's now or never.  If you have not signed yet, the time is now. If you have, please share with your family, friends, colleagues and communities. Let's tell Amazon we want them and 25,000 jobs in New York City.
