The COVID-19 vaccine is free, but lack of access to child care can be a barrier. That’s why four of our nation’s largest child care providers are offering free care for parents and caregivers getting vaccinated from now until July 4: http://vaccines.gov/incentives.html
Reminder: Uber and Lyft are giving FREE rides for passengers going to get their FREE COVID-19 vaccine until July 4.

Our democracy is under attack! Whether the Republicans voting rights assaults or the Democrats' #HR/S1's campaign finance section that makes it even easier to buy elections, both ruling parties are doing their best to make sure your vote doesn't matter.

More than 30M Americans live in areas without reliable broadband. The American Jobs Plan would connect every household.
As we connect America, we'll create good-paying jobs. We'll help our students succeed. We'll help our small businesses. And we'll help our nation compete.

Dems killed single-payer NY Health Act again yesterday.
Dem majorities in both houses "say" they support it.
But no vote on it before legislative session ended.
Dems are for it until they have the power to do it.
See also CA, HI, VT.
Watch what Dems do, not what they say.

So if Cuomo (D/WFP) so weak, then it is democratic state legislative leaders who killed action on things like single payer health care, climate change / carbon tax / halt fossil fuels, SWEAT Wage theft, lots of criminal justice, Compassionate Care, public power and so much more.
Last minute deal falls apart in Albany to restructure MTA and pass meaningful criminal justice reform. Insiders say scandals have greatly weakened @NYGovCuomo, and his ability to run the table. https://www.ny1.com/share/nyc/all-boroughs/news/2021/06/11/state-lawmakers-head-home-as-deal-over-mta-restructuring-falls-apart?cid=app_share
Keystone XL pipeline is now officially dead. Congratulations to the Indigenous-led resistance.
Now we keep fighting to stop the Enbridge Line 3 in MN, Enbridge Line 5 in MI, Dakota Access across ND, SD, IA, & IL, and all new fossil fuel infrastructure.

Our democracy is strongest when everyone participates. We should be fighting to make it easier for every eligible voter to cast a ballot, not harder.
DSA should not surprised that corporate Big Energy bought off the Democrats. The "decade of the Green New Deal" started with the Green Party’s campaign in 2010. When will DSA socialists support the ecosocialist Green Party rather than the capitalist Democratic Party?
NYC DSA says failure to pass major climate action this session amounts to "climate denial" by Democratic lawmakers

Biden has the power to stop Line 3 for dirty Alberta tar sands oil. Demand he do it.
New fossil fuel infrastructure like Line 3 locks in fossil fuel burning for decades more. Stopping Line 3 is a first step toward climate sanity & environmental justice.
Biden's climate plan is more too little, too late policy from the Democrats. We don't have time to wait, we need real climate action!
