NEW YORK POLITICAL COALITION

New York Civics Agenda:

Voter Apathy has now become a real threat to our local and national safety, prosperity and future. This threat is being highlighted prominently by the precipitous rise of socialism and political partisan extremism nationwide.

Furthermore, the ongoing partisan voter suppression measures being enacted by states legislators have made the matters even worse.

Democracy and free market capitalism are what propelled our nation to the top of the world in good governance, personal liberty and economic superpower, among others.

Democracy, however, works best when citizens proudly take part in their civic affairs as patriots. Political Apathy that leads to chronic low voter turnout, particularly in communities suffering from inadequate constituent services, is a constraint to residents’ socioeconomic progress. Take the Bronx, for example.

Our public safety, community Peace building and quality of life crusades are all tied to this mission of countering voter apathy. Instead of helplessly begging politicians to address them, we will support the elections of candidates who prioritize them.

Against this stubborn voter apathy challenge, New York Political Coalition (A nonpartisan political organization) and its growing partners are launching “New York Civics Agenda” initiative to combat civic apathy in New York and beyond.

In our judgment, two of the reasons contributing to voter apathy are: Ineffective political incumbency and unexcitable political candidates, and both are addressed through our proprietary ‘Candidate Questionnaires’ and ‘Constituency Index’.

New York Civics Agenda consists of programs and activities that educate and excite citizens about their civics, and it is funded by individuals, corporate donors, foundations and government grants.
