Indivisible Mohawk Valley to hold rally

Posted

UTICA - On Thursday, Jan. 6, Indivisible Mohawk Valley, a social justice and progressive action group, will hold a pro-democracy rally, “Don’t get Cold Feet, Democrats,” from 3 to 4 p.m. in front of Utica College at the corner of Burrstone Road and Champlin Avenue.

“To prevent another January 6, 2021 type of attack from happening again, advocates are demanding that elected leaders pass urgent legislation including the Freedom to Vote Act, the Protecting Our Democracy Act, and the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act,” reads a release from event organizers. “This event in Utica is one of more than 175 events that will take place across the country, including at the U.S. Capitol. Here's our message: Senators Schumer and Gillibrand, don’t get cold feet: pass the Freedom to Vote Act, John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act, and Build Back Better Act!,” the release adds.

At the event, the public can also donate warm socks, which will be donated to the Morrow Warming Center in Utica as well as for active military service members — $6 buys one pair for our neighbors and one pair for a soldier, the announcement said.
