(Archive) Stop Debt Collectors from Taking NYers’ Stimulus Funds

The NYS Legislature has just passed a critical bill that prohibits debt collectors from taking New Yorkers’ stimulus payments. The bill will ensure that relief funds actually provide relief—not windfalls for the debt collection industry. 

Take Action! Urge Governor Cuomo to sign this bill into law, to protect New Yorkers from financial predation and ensure a just recovery.

  1. Call Gov. Cuomo at 518-474-8390 and urge him to sign S5923A/A6617A.
  2. Share this alert with your networks.

Thank you for joining us in calling on the Governor to sign the bill—as an urgent matter of racial and economic justice.

New Economy Project sends special shout-outs to our friends at the Feerick Center for Social Justice and Mobilization for Justice, with which we helped craft the bill—and to all the groups around the state working to advance this vital legislation.
