GINY is a group of concerned citizens living and working in the Greenwich, NY area. We welcome everyone to participate and join in making our voices heard by our representatives at every level – local, NY State and Federal. One needn’t be a Greenwich resident to participate, we are interested in action, not address.
Greenwich Indivisible Goals:
- Replace Elise Stefanik in NY-21 with a Member of Congress who represents the citizens of our district, not party leadership and dark money
- Inform and involve our members in local issues directly impacting the residents of Washington County – local governance including our Village and Town as well as how national policy and issues impact us
- Inform and involve our members in NY State issues impacting the residents of Washington County and all of New York – healthcare, education, etc.
- Support Democrats and Progressives in their runs for office at all levels of government
- Support our members with information and resources for connecting with our representatives
GINY’s regular meetings are held monthly, usually the 3rd or 4th Thursday. We generally meet at the Cossayuna Fire House.
We focus on the concrete action we can take to impact our goals. We have three active teams that focus on Local Issues, Healthcare, and Environment. The work these teams do is shared with members to provide accurate and up to date information all can use when contacting our representatives through calls, post cards and letters to urge action on pending legislation. A major focus of our meetings is the 2018 Congressional election and the role we can play in identifying candidates.
We also sponsor ad hoc meetings and gatherings such as our “Card Party” in May. We got together in an informal home setting, with snacks, to talk and write post cards to the White House, our Members of Congress and NYS Legislators. We shared information to help one another compose strong, fact-based post cards urging specific actions. This produced over 100 post cards in the time it would take to write one well thought out letter. We got good coverage in the May 23 Saratogian.
