"Over the past year, Rise and Resist has used a variety of tactics to achieve this goal, including holding protests outside each IDC member’s office, phone-banking and canvassing to raise awareness, sending voter postcards to Cuomo, and even targeting anti-IDC Facebook ads to people who live in IDC members’ districts." — Occupy the Bronx

RAR Elections operates on the idea that in these times the best defense is an aggressive, local offense. To that end we’re working toward making state government progressive, humane, and able to protect New Yorkers from the damage being inflicted on the state by the regime in Washington.
RAR Elections is a group working to turn the NY State Senate blue, so that progressive legislation can be passed. We are currently focused on dismantling the IDC (Independent Democratic Conference) who are a group of 8 Senators elected as Democrats, but empower the Republicans, thereby standing in the way of progressive legislation. We have staged protests at IDC Senators offices, have ongoing anti-IDC education programs (phone banking, flyer-ing), have an ongoing anti-iDC postcard campaign, have an ongoing campaign to pressure Cuomo to call for special elections for the 2 currently vacant State Senate seats.
