Demand Action

We have all watched with awe as a generation of American teenagers has swept from tragedy a triumph that progressives have long dreamed of--to challenge the NRA and the lawmakers in its pocket and push for real action on gun control.  As March 14th, and the first round of student-led actions, approaches, we have the opportunity here in the 8th District to lend our voices to the cause.

On Monday, March 19th, join the first ever Moms Demand Actionmeeting in Jersey City, at Hudson Play on Brunswick Street.  The organization's Throw Them Out campaign focuses on unseating members of Congress in the pay of the NRA, and is lending its support to Democratic challengers in three New Jersey districts--NJ-03, NJ-07, and NJ-11.  Thus, this meeting is not only a chance to organize against gun violence, but as part of the #Voltron as well.  

And lest we forget--NJ-08 for Progress would love you all to join us in Teaneck for Vote Pledge Canvassing next Sunday the 18th, and at our Time for Action organizing event on March 28th!
