May Events

We have several very exciting and important events this month for you to participate in. First please be sure to join us at our general membership meeting on May 19th where we will hear from our esteemed past President and Councilmember Dan Garodnick.

The independent judicial screening panel is out and so is our own May district leaders’ report.

There are only about 40 days left until the current rent laws that protect affordable housing expire! Please join other Tildenites and the Real Rent Reform (R3) Campaign in Albany. R3 has arranged for buses every week this month to bring the message directly to Albany and will be departing from various locations depending on the day. Please RSVP to to go on Tuesday, May 10th, 17th or 24th or on Wednesday June 1st. Also, there is a Mother’s Day March for Stronger Rent Laws- May 8th at Noon meeting in the Sara D. Roosevelt Park at Hester Street. For more information on the march contact Esther Wang at (212) 473-6485 or

There are also two very important phone banking initiatives underway. First, the Maloney Campaign asks you to spend an afternoon or evening phonebanking for Kathy Hochul- Kathy is a democrat running for the seat vacated by Rep. Chris Lee in the May 24th Special Election against a Republican and a tea party independent. The phonebanking will be Wednesday May 11th from 5pm-9pm and Saturday May 14th from 12pm-4pm. For location, more information and to RSVP call 917-692-6457 or email

Second, State Senator Tom Duane requests our help in the New Yorker’s United for Marriage phonebanks for marriage equality which are being held Mondays and Thursdays from 5pm until 8:30pm at SEIU 1199, 330 West 42 St on the 7th Floor.
