Hunger Action Network Rally

On Tuesday, the Hunger Action Network will hold its 22nd Annual People's State of the State Rally.
The rally will call for job creation for welfare participants and other low-income individuals, strengthening the state's safety net and promoting progressive revenue options to resolve the state's projected $9 billion deficit.

It is Time for Wall Street to Bail out Main Street
Make the Minimum Wage a Living Wage, Not a Poverty Wage
Raise Unemployment Benefits
Cut the Military Budget to Fund Human Needs
NYS has a $9 Billion Deficit
Make the Rich pay their fair share of taxes
Protect the Safety Net

On the group's flyer it advocates for food in lieu of bombs. The group negatively characterizes Gov. Andrew Cuomo's fiscally conservative approach, while ignoring his recent decision to let a tax cut for the rich lapse, which seems to be in keeping with the group's philosophy.
The event takes place at the State Street entrance to the Capitol at 11:45 a.m.
