Common Cause New York Action Team continues to grow

February 14, 2017

Last night, over 60 people came to our second NYC Action Team meeting.

We've added the ability for our members to make phone calls from home, which has greatly expanded our capacity. But having 6-8 people in the office on Thursday evenings is wonderfully re-enforcing.
