Uplift Syracuse- Launch Party & Fundraiser

Hosted by: Uplift Syracuse

Come join us for a night of great music, good friends, and come discuss how we can make Syracuse a more equitable city, and Onondaga County a more progressive and beautiful place to live.

Live Music from: Eric Thomas, Elaine Dermady, Destynee Raines, Ben Blujus, Ryan Vendetti, Irv Lyons Jr., Edgar Pagan, and many more!!

Uplift Syracuse is a progressive advocacy group, working to create a more equitable city by supporting social justice efforts throughout the surrounding region.

We are developing a grassroots network to push for changes we hope to see in New York; including a single payer healthcare system, a transition to renewable energy, increased educational funding and equality, housing and economic justice, and reversing the trends in urban segregation.

We plan to organize events that will increase outreach efforts and education, to actualize this vision.

We will support progressive candidates running for public office who share these goals, and continue to push for legislative and electoral change at the city, county, and state level.
