ALEXIS PLEUS (Truthpharm)
 The Founder of Truth Pharm, Alexis Pleus, works selflessly as an advocate for change surrounding the tragic epidemic of opiate addiction.  As a mother who lost her son to addiction, Alexis knows intimately the painful turmoil of this plague.  Alexis harnessed her anguish and turned it into Truth Pharm, an organization whose mission is to reduce the stigma of addiction, advocate for policy change, as well as helping individuals navigate avenues for treatment.  Alexis and Truth Pharm are in the business of saving lives and she works tirelessly to lead us in a more compassionate direction to combat this rampant epidemic.
 
AMELIA LoDOLCE (vines)
 Amelia LoDolce sees a task that needs to be done and does it. Amelia grew up on her family farm, went on to work in Washington, DC on sustainable agricultural issues. She returned to Binghamton as the Sustainable Development Planner for the city. Amelia is passionate about creating access to healthy food for her community and protecting our environment. Her energy, leadersip and spirit led her to establish the successful organization VINES. She continues to stay true to her principles that further ecological, social and economic values of her community and region.  All this because her college friends didn’t know where their food came from.
 
CECILY O’NEIL
 Cecily O’Neil has devoted her life to social justice.  Cecily’s passion and
values are depicted by the many ways she gives of herself and time. We
often see awards go to the people who are bravely out-front leading the
charge. Cecily O’Neil exemplifies the quiet heroine rarely seen – in
 the background working tirelessly to accomplish whatever task is given
her. She, and others like her, are the bedrock of all movements for justice.
Cecily is a retired special education teacher and a dedicated volunteer at
the Unitarian Universalist Congregation, Citizen Action, Peace Action, and
Veterans for Peace. Wherever there is a need, she answers the call without
acclaim or reward.

Cuomo Walk The Talk On Climate Event: FREE Bus Trip
In a time of record-shattering hurricanes, with our federal government bought and sold by the fossil fuel industry, states like New York must step up and fight climate change. But Governor Andrew Cuomo is effectively all talk - and too little action. It will take more than fine words to keep our families safe from the growing crisis.
That’s why on April 23rd, New Yorkers from across the state are descending on Albany to tell Governor Cuomo to walk the talk on climate. From Rochester to Rensselaer, Buffalo to Brooklyn, we will join forces to demand 3 bold actions to fight climate change, create jobs, and ensure justice for all:

Tax Bill Will Hurt Working Families in Central New York

November 17, 2017 by imc-editor

Albany, NY -- In response to the House passage of the tax reform bill, Citizen Action of New York Executive Director Karen Scharff and Central New York Citizen Action President John Furman issued the following statements:

"The passage of the House tax reform bill is a kick in the teeth to working families in New York State. This bill is nothing more than a giant bonus check for billionaires and large corporations. At a time of rising inequality, we can't afford to shift more wealth from poor and working class families to the excessively wealthy. Rep. Tenney should be ashamed at supporting a bill that hurts so many of her constituents. The bill not only makes taxes more unfair to working people, but it also will lead to deeper cuts to education, health care, and other vital programs we depend on,” said Karen Scharff, Executive Director of Citizen Action of New York

“We are very disappointed that Rep. Tenney voted to pass a giant tax cut for corporations and the wealthy. We know from experience that instead of generating economic growth and jobs, tax cuts and the resulting lost revenue leads to unacceptable cuts in education, health care, and vital public services. Currently, corporations already pay far less than their top statutory tax rate of 35%. The tax bill will not bring jobs back but instead will encourage corporations to send work offshore, replace labor with machines, and give higher compensation packages to their CEOs. This tax bill is a disaster for Central New York families. Corporations and the wealthiest among us will receive trillions of dollars in tax breaks. At the same time, needed revenue for investments in education, infrastructure, housing, and health care will be taken away from Central New York communities. Low- and moderate-income families in our congressional district will pay twice–by seeing their taxes go up, and by losing services such as Medicaid, SNAP, housing vouchers, education, and child care,” said John Furman, President of Central New York Citizen Action.
