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.
Do you want to be more informed about New York local politics, but:
A. Don’t know where to look?
B. DO know where to look, but it’s so boring that you fall asleep while reading?
Never fear! We’re excited to be launching WOMEN WHO POD: a political podcast to answer all of your questions.
As part of our “Women Who Run” series, we chat with Jasi Robinson, NY State Senate Candidate in the 23rd district. This Staten Island/South Brooklyn district has been IDC member Diane Savino’s since 2005, where she often runs uncontested. Jasi talks about why she decided to take on this 13-year incumbent to affect real change in her home district, and why she wants to inspire more women of color to run. In her own words: “Martin Luther King had a dream. Jasi Robinson has a plan.”
ELECTION ALERT: The next NY election is the

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.
