Please join us for a BBQ fundraiser for NH State Representative Candidates Francesca Diggs and Kevin Maes!
As we’ve seen from the horrific policy of ripping children from their parents at the border, we are in a battle for the soul of our country, and we’re lucky to have a chance to meet with one of the leaders in that battle: Senator Jeff Merkley, at this event.
Senator Merkley has led the effort to change the child separation policy, first drawing national attention to the problem when he had the police called on him when he tried to visit a child detention facility in Brownsville, Texas in early June. In fact, he has been in the middle of many battles for opportunity and justice – passing legislation to end predatory mortgages and stop the big bank gambles that wrecked the economy, outlining a bold vision of moving America past fossil fuels, writing legislation to end LGBT discrimination, and filibustering the nomination of Neil Gorsuch to a stolen Supreme Court for over 15 hours, to name a few.
He’ll be coming to the Plymouth Area to talk about the stakes in the 2018 election and how we can build a blue wave to put some checks and balances on this administration and begin transforming our state and our country to work for “We the People” and a vision of equality and fairness, not for the privileged and powerful.
Senator Merkley has spent his life building teams to take on tough fights. He sees grassroots organizing as the key to the tough fights in front of us and looks forward to hearing from all of us as well as sharing his views about how we build the grassroots team to win!
