ELECTION ACTION 2018: BID HIGHLIGHTS
HOW WE'LL WIN BACK CONGRESS - MARCH 3, 2018
Excerpts from email sent March 8, 2018, by Lori Sackler, BID President
We had a wonderful morning at the Unitarian Church in Paramus on March 3, 2018, where we demonstrated our resolve and determination to work together to Win Back Congress in the all-important 2018 midterm election.
Mark your calendars: Tuesday, November 6, 2018.
Please make sure you and your friends and family members are registered to vote and, if you plan to travel, send in your absentee ballot!

The energy, enthusiasm and commitment was clearly heightened by the joint participation of our group, Bergen Indivisible for Democracy (BID), with Indivisible NJ 5 and NJ 11 for Change, and the other groups that attended.Elizabeth Juviler and Saily Avelenda of NJ 11 and Jeff Fox of NJ 5 provided a special kind of inspiration with their stories and successes in their respective districts, while Anna Wong of NJ 5 and the NJ 5 Coalition, and Marguerite Suozzo-Gole of Indivisible National inspired us with their technical know-how and tools and tips for registering and getting out the vote.

The bottom line for BID, mainly representing NJ Congressional District 9, is that we will support NJ 5 and NJ 11's efforts to elect Democrats in their districts and will provide door-knocking boots on the ground, card writing initiatives, and help in getting folks registered.
Get ready to further your skills as community organizers and activists. We will be calling on you again soon, so stay tuned.

We now turn our attention to the upcoming March For Our Lives on March 24, 2018, when students and their families “will take to the streets to demand that their lives and safety become a priority, and that we end gun violence in our schools and communities.”
There are three marches organized near our area: in Newark, Bergen County and Rockland County, NY. You can find more information about a march nearest to you by clicking here.
