MOBILIZATION FOR DEMOCRACY. JANUARY 6, 2022

Despite the right wing’s attempted coup on January 6, 2021, today we have a sane, reasonable, measured leader in President Biden. However, one year later, the attempt to undermine the will of the people remains under attack, with Trump-aligned Republicans working to subvert free and fair elections in many states. At this critical moment, we must stand together and urge our elected leaders to pass legislation to shore up the principle that American government is “for the people and by the people.” 

Our mobilization to defend our democracy launches this Thursday, January 6, 2022 at 6:30 p.m. in Spiotta Park in South Orange. Uniting with similar gatherings planned throughout the country, we will remember the violent insurrection and those who died defending the Capitol, and learn how each one of us can take action now. 

The boundaries of NJ Congressional Districts 10 & 11 have shifted recently. This creates fresh challenges for this year’s election cycle. Let’s get engaged! 

Please be masked and vaccinated and let us know you’re coming!
