New York State's Trump Democrats

The Independent Democratic Conference (IDC) is a group of 8 New York State Senators who were elected to office as Democrats but align with Republicans — giving Republicans control of the State Senate.

“For many liberal New Yorkers who assumed their state was thoroughly blue, the Independent Democratic Conference’s very existence has come as a nasty, if galvanizing, surprise.” — New York Times, Feb. 6, 2017

WHO IS IN THE IDC?

Tony Avella - Queens
David Carlucci - Rockland
Jesse Hamilton - Brooklyn
Jeff Klein - The Bronx

Jose Peralta - Queens
Diane Savino - Staten Island
David Valesky -  Onondaga
Marisol Alcantara - Manhattan

WHAT LEGISLATION DOES THE IDC-GOP ALLIANCE BLOCK?

More rent-regulated apartments
The Reproductive Health Act
And countless additional progressive legislation

Single payer healthcare
The State DREAM Act
The Gender Expression Non-Discrimination Act

WHAT DOES THE IDC GET OUT OF ITS ALLIANCE WITH REPUBLICANS?

Bigger offices, extra salary, more power, and district-specific goodies while statewide progressive legislation lingers.

WHAT CAN YOU DO?

Help elect REAL Democrats and remove the IDC from power.
