WHAT WE DO
We empower every New York woman to vote, run for office, and hold our elected officials accountable.
Forward March New York was created by the organizers of the Women’s March on Washington New York Chapter, to empower women to engage in politics and fight for a more progressive New York.

NEWEST EPISODE: PRIMARIES, KAVANAUGH, AND SPECIAL GUEST ALESSANDRA BIAGGI
Alessandra Biaggi, Democratic Candidate for NY State Senate District 34 (Westchester and The Bronx) talks about how her campaign started from an idea in her parents’ living room to a dream come true. On September 13th, she beat Senator Jeff Klein, founder and leader of the IDC (Independent Democratic Conference, AKA those Democrats who always vote with Republicans) becoming the Democratic nominee for her district. Now she has the General Election to win on November 6th.
Anat and Danielle also recap what else happened in that primary (spoiler alert: it was great), as well as what’s going on with the Brett Kavanaugh nomination.

FIGHT THE IDC
Join us in voting out the turncoat members of the Independent Democratic Conference (IDC) in 2018. These eight Senators run as Democrats, but vote with Republicans once they get into office, giving republicans a majority and a chokehold on our state government.
These are the members of the IDC. 6 of the 8 are representatives of New York City. Could one of them be your representative? If so, get ready to vote them out in 2018.
