Whether you want to rally in support of immigrants, advocate with women seeking economic justice and reproductive rights, or help make some plans for May Day or the People's Climate March, there are plenty of ways to actively participate in democracy this week. Oh, also, a dance party, because you could probably use a break.

Beyond The Moment Teach-In
A number of economic, sexual and racial justice coalitions will sit down and talk to confront their differences and figure out how they can build a movement that encompasses all of their voices. You could be there too, if you want to learn or have some ideas.
FREE, Tuesday, April 4, 6 p.m., 25 West 18th Street


Rally to Save the EPA

Critics of President Trump’s proposal to slash the Environmental Protection Agency by 31 percent say the cuts could hinder superfund cleanup sites like the Gowanus Canal and Newton Creek. On Tuesday, a litany of NYC environmental groups will rally outside of Chuck Schumer’s office in midtown to demand that the Senate Minority Leader lead the charge in protecting the EPA. Worth remembering: hordes of shouting constituents has so far proven effective in getting Schumer to oppose the Republican majority.
FREE, Tuesday, April 4, 12 p.m., Office of Chuck Schumer, 780 3rd Avenue

Lunch At Cuomo's-Rally for Reproductive Rights

Last month, the Women's Health And Reproductive Rights (WHARR) committee announced that they’d be hosting a weekly lunch at Governor Cuomo’s NYC office until the Reproductive Health Act is voted on in the Senate. As that hasn’t happened yet, the committee keeps on lunch-ing. Join them on Wednesday to help rally for the bill’s passage and inform New Yorkers about the current inadequacies of abortion law in the state.
FREE, Wednesday, April 5, 12:00 p.m., Office of the Governor, 633 3rd Avenue (between 40th and 42st)

Banner/Art Making for May Day

FREE, Thursday, April 6, 4 p.m., Mayday Space, 176 St. Nicholas Avenue

Ladies First: A Dance Party Celebrating Badass Women of Music
With all the protesting and rallying and organizing you're doing out there, it could be good to dance things out. Don't go to just any dance party though. Go to the one that will have songs almost exclusively from legendary women in the music business, and in which every penny will go to Planned Parenthood.
$7/$10, Friday, April 7, 10:30 p.m., Littlefield, 622 Degraw Street

Action Item Fair
If you're all wound up and don't exactly know what to do with all that energy of yours, hit up the Action Item Fair. There, you'll learn about the movements you can join, pick up a few skills you'll need for your activism ahead and meet other people you can work with to help make the world a better place.
FREE, Saturday, April 8, noon, ThoughtWorks, Inc., 99 Madison Avenue

Protest Anti-Immigrant Lawsuit #RescindOrResign!
Rather than wait for a court to rule on the issue, protesters are heading to Staten Island today to demand Assembly Members Nicole Malliotakis and Ron Castorina drop their lawsuit demanding the city not delete its IDNYC data like it promised to. Beyond calling for an end to the lawsuit, the march will also be against the Trump administration's anti-immigrant agenda in general.
FREE, Saturday, April 8, 1 p.m., Greencroft Playground, Greencroft Avenue between Ainsworth Avenue and Redgrave Avenue
