We’re excited to announce we’ll be hosting our first virtual town hall on Tuesday May 12 at 7pm! Our very own co-Executive Director, Leah Greenberg, will be moderating a joint discussion with congressional candidates Arati Kreibich (NJ-05) and Melanie D’Arrigo (NY-03).
Both Arati and Melanie have been endorsed by the Indivisible movement after being nominated by local groups in the New York metro area, and they’re both taking on conservative, corporate-backed incumbents. In fact, these incumbents are Democratic leaders of the "Problem Solvers" Caucus, a bipartisan group of lawmakers funded by billionaires through a front group called No Labels Action. This caucus has predictably represented these wealthy special interests in Congress by repeatedly watering down progressive priorities.
Arati and Melanie are running to fight for people, not corporations, and to champion bold, progressive ideas like Medicare for All and a Green New Deal. Both of these districts deserve a real, grassroots-supported Democrat representing them in Congress.
