2022 Events and Achievements

Remembrance and Call To Action

June 5 

 

Bergen Indivisible for Democracy was prominently highlighted Saturday June 5th at a "Remembrance and Call To Action" event  sponsored by  Leonia Action and Bergen/Passaic Mom's Demand Action.

BID and other organizations participated in support of the activism in response to  the recent school mass shooting in Uvalde. 

Lori Sackler spoke as part of a lineup of representatives of different grass roots organizations, including Students Demand Action. Her message was clear:  the ballot box is the best means to change the current direction of our country, preserve our democratic rights and fight for common sense gun control legislation. We need to change the composition of government at all levels, state and national, and replace those who are standing in the way of progress.

Our Future Is at Stake!  Protect the Vote: Preserve our Democracy! 

 

In response to the voter suppression sweeping the country, BID organized a series of events to help protect our fundamental right to vote 

 

Pictured here are attendees for the first event, which was held in Tenafly’s McCandless Room on April 20. In coordination with The Action Network NJ, BID rallied community support in a letter writing campaign to encourage individuals to register and vote in advance of the New Jersey’s Primary. Dedicated volunteers prepared registration materials and wrote personal notes to over 500 individuals in the top 10% of those MOST LIKELY to lean Democratic in District 3 (Representative Andy Kim), District 7 (Representative Tom Malinowski), and District 11 (Mikie Sherrill).

 

Upcoming events include postcard writing campaigns to swing states with key Senate races to help highlight what the current administration has accomplished so voters are motivated to turn out this fall.
