Thank you for visiting the new Unshackle Upstate website. Take a moment to learn a bit about our organization and what makes us tick.

Unshackle Upstate is a bi-partisan coalition of over 80 business and trade organizations representing upwards of 70,000 companies and employing more than 1.5 million people.

We hail from across Upstate New York with one goal: To achieve reforms in Albany that make Upstate New York a stronger place to do business.

Thousands of Upstate New York residents have already been heard by sending an email through our website to the decision makers in Albany. Progress has been made and the coalition continues to work for more.

Make sure your voice is heard and send an email by clicking on the "Contact Albany" button. You will find a template email of support for Unshackle Upstate's reform agenda already done for you. Sending an email will only take a minute or two, and is sure to make an impact.
