When: Wednesday, June 13

Location: “Million Dollar Staircase” at the New York State Capitol Building, Albany

Please join faith leaders and community members for an interfaith service aimed to move the hearts and minds of state leaders to do the right thing for nearly a million New York workers and their families. Afterward we will deliver the faith letter to Gov. Cuomo urging him to do everything in his power to raise the minimum wage from $7.25 to at least $8.50 per hour and index it annually to the rising cost of living.

Eight out of ten New York voters support raising the minimum wage!
