BlueWaveNJ Endorses Donald Payne For Congress

BlueWaveNJ is proud to endorse Donald Payne Jr. for Congress.

 

Congressman Payne is a leader grounded in the needs of his district. He has consistently voted for and advanced economic, racial, environmental, and social justice issues. He has worked to advance collective bargaining rights, expand healthcare access (Medicare for All sponsor), and economic justice, for example, by calling for reparations. 

 

BlueWaveNJ President Marcia Marley said, "Rep. Payne has been a strong progressive voice for New Jersey and his district in Congress and I look forward to working with him on enacting policies that support working families, protect our environment, secure voting rights and reproductive justice.”

Putin or Biden? (G.O.P. Must Choose)

Small “d” democracy

By Mark Lurinsky

For those who have been paying attention, it’s apparent that Joe Biden’s accomplishments in mustering a massive and effective united front of nations countering Putin’s naked aggression on Ukraine have been nothing short of astonishing. Most recently, 140 countries have joined us at the U.N. General Assembly in deploring the invasion and demanding that Russia “immediately, completely and unconditionally withdraw all its military forces,” leaving the Russian autocrat virtually isolated on the diplomatic front. And Fortune reported on February 28 that “the sanctions against Russia went from toothless to devastating overnight as its economy began collapsing.”

“Junior” Kean: Integrity DNA May Have Skipped a Generation

Small “d” democracy

By Mark Lurinsky

It’s well known that New Jersey Republican politician Thomas H. Kean, Jr., now gearing up to challenge Rep.

A grassroots, progressive organization seeking solutions through community

BlueWaveNJ has become a respected grassroots organization recognized for the know-how and energy of its thousands of committed volunteers and supporters.

Our working groups, conferences, marches and special events have mobilized voters and coalitions to demand positive change from our legislators at the state and federal level in such critical areas as health care, the economy, marriage equality, the environment, education, electoral reform and sensible gun control. We have held major conferences on gun violence, stem cell research, Middle East peace, diversity and commercial sexual exploitation of children, and our nation’s growing health care crisis. We have distributed thousands of educational flyers, circulated petitions,  and written hundreds of letters and directly lobbied legislators and officials demanding that they save Social Security, protect net neutrality, restrict corporate media concentration, promote alternative energy production, provide universal health care, promote “clean elections,” install reliable voting machines, ensure quality education for all, and pass marriage equality legislation. We have also trained thousands of volunteers who help elect progressive leaders at local, state, and national levels. 

Join us as we continue our fight in areas like electoral reform, social justice, and economic justice.
