Week of January 19, 2020

1) Malinowski Town Hall: The next town hall with Congressman Malinowski is next Saturday, January 25 from 1:30-3 pm at Millburn High School. Please keep showing up at these town halls to give Congressman Malinowski support as he faces an increasingly divided constituency. Be there to thank him for voting to impeach President Trump and to limit the President’s war powers, while also fighting for local issues like restoring the SALT deduction and making progress on the Gateway project.

2) Volunteer: Tomorrow marks Martin Luther King Jr. Day. Spend it in service to our communities by volunteering. Our fellow resister Gina Sampaio coordinates an all-ages service event at the Lower Valley Presbyterian Church in Califon from 12-2 pm tomorrow (Monday). Please come or volunteer elsewhere. More information is here: https://www.facebook.com/events/582245259176141/.

3) Impeachment: The fact that the President has chosen Kenneth Starr for his defense team tells you how little he regards Congress’s oversight. Call Senators Booker and Menendez to ask that they do their best to ensure that the Senate call witnesses and act impartially on all the evidence that can be obtained. This is critical as new evidence from Lev Parnas is slowly revealed to the public.

4) Support Malinowski’s Reelection: Congressman Malinowski has been working overtime on our behalf, on local, national, and international issues. It is critical that we reelect him and keep the checks-and-balances that a Democratic House offers. There are two opportunities this week at the DCCC office in Bridgewater, 1311 Prince Rogers Avenue. Come on Monday or Tuesday, 5-8 pm, to phonebank and send out letters. RSVP to Aidan Hughes at hughes@dccc.org.
