Save Our Post Office Rallies Across New Jersey

Post Offices Across New Jersey

There are over a dozen locations currently planned. Please view the below link to RSVP to a specific location.www.bluewavenj.org/postofficeDonald Trump’s attacks and defunding of the postal system are a direct threat to the right to vote and the integrity of the election and even now are delaying Americans from getting the medicine and mail they need. We must act now to stop this attack and protect our election process.Trump is hoping to make his false and self-serving attacks on the ability of the post office to handle mail-in voting a self-fulfilling prophecy. His new Postmaster General, Republican mega-donor Louis DeJoy, is orchestrating a general slowdown in operations, reducing the time that mechanical mail sorting machines operate, cutting overtime for postal workers and reducing delivery standards so that mail is now routinely left behind on workroom floors and loading docks.We can’t allow this to happen. Join BlueWaveNJ and other New Jersey grassroots activists to demand that the full Postal Service funding passed by the U.S. House of Representatives be immediately enacted into law and Trump’s political appointees cease their sabotage of mail operations and prepare the postal service for the surge in mail-in ballots this fall.Join a “Save Our Mail! Save Our Vote!” event in front of a Post Office near you. Face masks and 6-foot Social Distancing Requirements will be strictly complied with at all events.www.bluewavenj.org/postoffice...

How to Understand & Fight Bias Registration Link in note

Wed Jun 24th, 2020, 7:30PM - Wed Jun 24th, 2020, 9:00PM

You must register to attend. womenforprogress.z2systems.com/event.jsp?event=2&At Women for Progress, we want to acknowledge the moment we're living through, with unprecedented numbers of protesters taking to the streets to affirm that Black Lives Matter and to decry police brutality. By now, you've probably engaged on social media. Maybe you’ve also attended a protest and donated to a BLM organization. What's the next step you can take in engaging in anti-racist actions? Learning & undoing our implicit bias.Join us on Wed., 6/24 at 7:30pm for a discussion on how good people fight bias, with acclaimed author & educator Dolly Chugh. Dr. Chugh is the author of “The Person YOU Mean to Be” and is a Harvard-educated, award-winning social psychologist at the NYU Stern School of Business. She is an expert on unconscious biases and the psychology of good people. It’s not enough to just talk the anti-racist talk; we also have to walk the walk. We have to put our money where our mouth is - literally! That’s why we’re purchasing our copies of “The Person You Mean to Be” from Source of Knowledge, a Black-owned bookstore in Newark. Check out their website: bit.ly/2MANSo3They are taking phone orders and will ship or do curbside pickup.If you prefer to order on-line, The Lit. Bar is another Black-owned bookstore that gives you that option. www.thelitbar.com/If you do not have time to read the book before this event, please at least watch Dr. Chugh's Ted Talk Here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=s2cixaL9H3UOnce registered you will receive the Zoom link to the event.
