Organized by:
The Hampton Institute, a working-class think tank dedicated to not only providing commentary, theoretical analyses and research on a wide range of social, political and economic issues from a distinct, working-class perspective; but also to focusing on the continuation of transforming these ideas into practical steps towards revolutionary social change.

Why #MoralFriday:

Patterned after the successful Moral Mondays Movement in North Carolina, a political grassroots movement calling for peaceful demonstrations and civil disobedience to fight social injustices, we will use this template in Albany during this special weekend.

When I See Them, I See Us!

It is time for us to talk about how our struggles are indeed connected. It is time to work together and fight!
Two important issues we must fight are the Anti-Refugee Bill being considered in NY (SB 6253) and the New York State Terror Registry Bill (S3464B-2015) introduced by Senator Thomas Croci (R-Sayville).
