Calls to action for the week of October 6, 2019:
1) Impeachment: Keep calling Congressman Malinowski to thank him for speaking out so clearly about the horror of President Trump explicitly asking foreign governments to interfere with the 2020 election. He has shown real leadership, grounded in his deep experience in foreign policy. You can see his October 2 appearance on Chris Hayes’s show on MSNBC here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=23Yv1ivfe1E.
2) October Service Project: This month, the Western New Jersey Democrats Community Service Team is collecting donations for our vets residing at Vet Haven in Glen Gardner. The dropoff date is Sunday, Oct. 13th, 1:00-3:00, at Ironbound Hard Cider (360 County Rt. 579, Asbury).
