And as we mobilize for tomorrow’s Demonstration, let's keep up the pressure by making phone calls to elected officials asking them to support the exemption!

MAKE YOUR CALLS! KEEP IT UP!

GOVERNOR ANDREW CUOMO: 518-474-8390

ASSEMBLY SPEAKER CARL HEASTIE: 518-455-3791

SENATE MAJORITY LEADER ANDREA STEWART-COUSINS: 518-455-2585

We also need to keep up the pressure on State Senators and Assembly Members by flooding their offices with calls! You can look up your representatives by entering your address at this link for your Assembly Member and at this link for your State Senator. Or call the office at 718-706-9892 or email media@nytwa.org so we can look them up for you!

When you call your Senator or Assembly Member, you can use this script:

My name is ___, and I am a member of your district. I drive [yellow cab/green cab], and I am a member of the Taxi Workers Alliance. I need an exemption from the Congestion Pricing surcharge because I cannot afford to lose any more income. More than 90% of my fares take place in the affected zone, and I could lose up to $15,000 per year in income at a time when I am already struggling. I need the assembly member/senator to support an exemption for yellow and green cabs!
