Senator on the line: Brooklyn rallygoers make public and literal call to Schumer demanding progressive action


Activists at a Brooklyn rally on Sunday afternoon literally called Chuck Schumer to demand that the Senate Majority Leader live up to progressive policy promises.

Nearly a year since President Joe Biden and several other democratic representatives were elected, and with the passage of time some feel those who campaigned on the promise for swift change to policies regarding citizenship, immigration reform, climate change, healthcare, voting rights, and more have failed to enact meaningful advancements.

“Donald Trump could have kept things the same but we don’t want the same, we want to build back better,” Public Advocate Jumaane Williams said surrounded by protest signs at Grand Army Plaza on Sunday afternoon.
