We are just over a week away from the November 3rd election, and we wanted to provide a few resources and updates on pre- and post election news and events.
We are in a troubling time, and the future of our democracy is at stake. We are headed into a historic election that will shape our communities and impact our rights for years to come, and we are simultaneously facing a right-wing attempt to rush through the confirmation of an anti-choice, climate science questioning Supreme Court nominee.
This is a big election year, and there is a lot on the line for our country, our state and our democracy. We are hard at work mobilizing with our movement partners to defeat Trump so we can begin healing our communities, and it is just as important to show up for our New Hampshire state and district candidates.
President Trump recently nominated Amy Coney Barrett to fill the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s seat on the US Supreme Court. We must not let this happen.
Barrett has a conservative voting record and has openly criticized the Affordable Care Act and Roe v. Wade. If appointed, she poses a serious threat to the healthcare and reproductive rights that Justice Ginsburg did so much to advance, and that generations of organizers and activists have fought so hard for.
There is still time for you get involved and help our candidates win in the September 8th primaries, and make sure they go on to the General Election in November. To help you take action, we have assembled a “one-stop shop” here for all of the RAD-endorsed candidates in New Hampshire.
From municipal boards to the presidency, we need movement champions in office at every level of government, who will advocate for the change we need and ensure that the communities most impacted by the multitude of crises confronting us, and whose voices have been excluded from decision-making spaces will be heard and included.
What happening this week? Check out RAD’s upcoming events, key actions, resources and more!
We’re especially proud right now to be parents and grandparents. The Trump administration has finally gotten so out of hand, a Wall of Moms had to “stop this car” to intervene in Portland, Oregon.
With half of the year behind us, we’re looking towards what’s ahead with new energy. For us at RAD, June was about finding our balance in a wild spectrum of emotions and responses to the crises and movements escalating around us – a balance between introspection and action, leading and listening; and transitioning while staying still.
For one of the wealthiest countries to ignore the struggles of everyday people and their families is why we at Rights & Democracy and our national affiliates are demanding that our Senate leaders do their job when they return to Washington, DC next week.
