Organizing for Action

How did we get here? Late last Thursday, the Senate came one vote -- one single vote -- away from passing a health care bill that would have devastated the lives of millions of Americans.

The fact that it failed is an undeniable testament to you. To the calls you made, the letters you wrote, the rallies you attended. To the mantra we always believed in during the Obama administration: One voice can change a room.

But we got to this moment, quite simply, because every part of this process was wrong -- and understanding that will help us with an equally important question: What comes next?

There's only one answer: We work together to make people's lives better.

Mitch McConnell and Senate leaders wanted to help this administration score a win. Now is the time to forget about political points.

They wanted to draft the bill in secret committees and back rooms. Now is the time for transparency, debate, and an open process that seeks bipartisan solutions.

They wanted to ignore health care experts, doctors, insurers, hospitals, and worst of all, the American people. Now is the time to listen and solicit valuable feedback.

Here's what cannot happen next: an administration scheming to sabotage Obamacare, rooting for the failure of markets and pulling resources away that could help Americans get the relief they need.

It must be a real and honest attempt to help all Americans get access to quality, affordable health care.

That's the only way forward -- and to make sure they understand that, we need to keep standing strong:https://my.ofa.us/Keep-Fighting-For-Heath-Care

The Restaurant

Across a bridge, over a river, into a dream.
Located in one of New York’s most unique settings, The River Café has become very well-known around the world as a culinary destination.
Nestled riverside under the Brooklyn Bridge with sweeping views of the New York skyline and the Statue of Liberty, The River Café serves a classic New American menu using only the finest and freshest ingredients available.

40th Year Anniversary at The River CaféThe changing tides of fashion and trends may come and go, but Michael O’Keeffe’s vision of timelessness expressed as a Restaurant will always be
The River Café.
It has never left its mooring under the Brooklyn Bridge, but still journeys ahead each day toward the goal of seeking out the finest ingredients for every detail of the dining experience and delivering them to guests from all over the world.
To endure so consistently as a culinary destination for forty years accompanied by an unwavering commitment to excellence is nothing short of marvelous. Bravissimo Buzzy.

Projects 105: Cinthia Marcelle

Through September 4

Tickets available at MoMA PS1
For Projects 105, MoMA PS1 presents Education by Stone(2016), a new site-specific installation by Cinthia Marcelle (born Belo Horizonte, Brazil, 1974) and the artist’s first solo exhibition in New York. Marcelle is known for installations, performances, and videos that stage forms of labor to produce poetic situations. The installation introduces chalk, a traditional teaching material to which Marcelle has returned throughout her career, into the Duplex gallery of MoMA PS1—which is itself a former school building. Numerous rods of chalk will be lodged into the fissures and openings of the gallery’s brick walls from floor to ceiling, revealing the material’s inherent instability and fragility.
Cinthia Marcelle has had solo exhibitions in South America and Europe. She recently participated in the 11th Sharjah Biennial (2015), and will represent Brazil in the 57th Venice Biennale (2017). In 2006, she was the recipient of the International Prize for Performance for her work Gray Demonstration (2006). In 2010, she was awarded the Future Generation Prize.
Organized by Giampaolo Bianconi, Curatorial Assistant, Department of Media and Performance Art, The Museum of Modern Art.
The Elaine Dannheisser Projects Series is made possible in part by The Elaine Dannheisser Foundation and The Junior Associates of The Museum of Modern Art.
