Hello. I’m reaching out as a despondent NYC voter facing a “Trump Presidency”. I’m so outraged the election went the way it did, and eager to find a place to focus my energy into a positive outlet for change, support, empowerment and rights for all currently at risk under this impending administration. I’m at a loss as to “where and how” and therefore reaching out to You folks for information about what’s going on and where help is needed. The question “What do we do now?” is running around my brain, I can’t sit idly by and watch the potential decimation of so many rights and liberties long fought for already. Please advise.
Hello Monica! I apologize for my very delayed reply, but in case you are still looking for an outlet for your energy, here are some local groups that align with TBNY’s progressive work! Please check them out. If you happen to live in an area that is far from the meeting locations of these groups, feel free to let me know the general area of where you are located, and I can try to find other progressive groups and let you know!

Hello Camille! There isn’t any organization in NYC directly related to Bernie Sanders. However, these organizations share many of his progressive goals and some of these were started by former Bernie volunteers! Please check them out –
