Stand up New York!

Empire Center

We’re calling on Governor Cuomo and the Legislature to immediately release the 121 data sets as identified by the Empire Center and eight other civic groups in a joint letter to the governor.

The Empire Center successfully sued the New York Health Department to force release of the full count of deaths in nursing homes -- which was a victory for the public’s right to know and ended months of disinformation from Cuomo and other top officials.

As important as that breakthrough was, it barely scratched the surface of the vast amounts of data that the state has been collecting but withholding from the people who are its rightful owners.

There is no priority more urgent than bolstering the state’s pandemic defenses to make sure nothing like this can happen again.

That starts with opening every scrap of data to public inspection and subjecting it to honest and independent investigation.

Join us as we petition Governor Cuomo and the Legislature to release the information that is rightfully ours.
