This past Saturday was the NY for Biden Unity Rally. As we gear up for the next few months before the Presidential Election, the strategy is clear - Protect states that Democrats won narrowly in 2016, Win Back states that Democrats won in 2008 or 2012 and lost in 2016, and Expand our coalition to include new battleground states that are now in play based on 2018 trends. If you're interested in volunteering or learning more, please email NewYorkforBiden@gmail.com. Here are several upcoming events from the Campaign Trail:

The horrifying and senseless death of George Floyd while in the custody of Minneapolis police has thrown the United States into a state of grief and turmoil.  Racism is a stain on our humanity, and good people must gather peacefully together to resist and repel it.  We must see and hear each other; and we must work together to rewrite the rules so that everyone, with no exceptions, can live without fear, care for their families, have their voices heard, and their rights respected.  

If you are looking for ways to participate and/or support, a number of organizations and resources are listed here.

"In a racist society, it is not enough to be non-racist.  We must be anti-racist."  - Angela Davis
