Come canvass for Zephyr Teachout!

http://berning4zephyr.org

Join fellow Grassroots Action NY and Team Bernie NY for a day trip to the Hudson Valley (Congressional District 19) to help elect Zephyr Teachout to Congress! We’ll be going upstate four Saturdays in October: October 8th, October 15th, October 22nd, and October 29th.

We’ll meet on 9th Avenue, between 40th and 41st Streets in Manhattan at 9AM sharp. We will be renting a 15 passenger van for each day, driving upstate, door knocking for the afternoon with local grassroots groups and Bernie volunteers and ending the day with a festive local happy hour. We will be back in the city by 9PM.

Seats on the van are $20. We will post a Brown Paper Tickets option soon, or if you prefer Venmo or Paypal, that will also be an option. We will be raising money to defer the cost for those who may need a scholarship. Please RSVP at this link if you would like to join us.

Newsletter 06/10

A nook in a pub, a sunset and one of the hundreds of organizing meetings happening across the state and the country.

All over the country, grassroots groups are meeting, creating structure and continuing to build on the networks that have been formed by Bernie’s movement. Bernie has told us all along that we need to elect more progressives at local levels and push for the many legislative changes this country needs. Members of the Team Bernie NY network have begun work on some new projects aligned with Bernie’s platform. Moving forward, we will highlight new projects and any updates that go along with them. If you are interested in spearheading a project and presenting it at a future TBNY meeting, please email the details to projects@teambernieny.org to be added to the agenda. The next meeting is Wednesday, June 15th.

Project Updates

 

Debbie Medina for State Senate

Debbie Medina, long time housing activist in South Williamsburg is running for State Senate in district 18 as a Democratic Socialist and Bernie supporter. TBNY members are excited to begin collaboration with the Medina campaign and our first goal is getting her on the ballot. Petitioning began 6/7 and runs through 7/11. If you petitioned for Bernie, you can petition for Debbie. Join us at her campaign’s kick off this Saturday
 

Democracy at Work

Support for Worker Co-ops in the City and State. How can we bring democracy to the workplace? Paul Sliker will be leading the collaboration with the Democracy @ Work group.

“Simply put, when employees have an ownership stake in their company, they will not ship their own jobs to China to increase their profits. They will be more productive. And, they will earn a better living.”  -Bernie Sanders
 

County Committee Races

Candidates for county committee spots have stepped up and petitions will be ready to go soon. For an update on this project or to get involved, attend the 6/15 Team Bernie NY general meeting or contact Michael Blecher at michael.blecher13@gmail.com.

There were so many Phone Bank events (go NY callers!) we couldn’t list them all. Click here to find the one closest to you! Calling those upcoming primary states is one of the best ways to help Bernie!

In my view, you don’t need much to register voters – just a clipboard, pen, registration forms and a smile.
Pants optional.
