Friends of NYCC

New York Communities for Change is one of the most badass organizations in New York. These guys unionize fast food workers, fight stop-and-frisk, did serious relief work during Hurricane Sandy, and are the essence of solidarity not charity. Honored to be a supporter.

I’ll be drinking at their event. If you sign up as a $40/month donor, you get this exclusive signed print of New York Communities for Change member Pamela Flood, one of the organizers of the fast food workers’ strike.
