Reproductive Rights Are on the Line and We Need Your Help

With the new conservative majority on our Supreme Court, Roe v. Wade is in jeopardy.

Here in New Jersey we are working to pass The Reproductive Freedom Act. The RFA is ground-breaking legislation that will codify the right to abortion for everyone in New Jersey. It also expands access to pregnancy-related care and birth control with a focus on historically marginalized communities.

Where Our NJ Reps Stand On Removing Trump.

It doesn't matter that Trump has just eight days left in his term, his behavior is too dangerous for us to wait it out. By impeachment, the House takes a moral stand and affirms that incitement to overthrow elected government will not be tolerated now or in the future, and those that try will be held accountable. Anything less sets an unbelievably dangerous precedent. Trump's egregious behavior should make this automatic for every representative.

If you have a NJ Democratic congressional representative, please take the time to thank them for doing their duty and holding the president accountable. Find your representative's contact info here.

We also need to express our concern (outrage) towards those that violate the rule of law.

If you are in Chris Smith's district (NJ04), we are emailing you separately to urge him to vote for impeachment. He has not yet come out in support of removing the President, but he did not participate in the treasonous attempt to vote against certifying the electoral college vote. This small gesture of patriotism gives us hope that he might be swayed to vote for Trump's removal from office.

If you live in the turncoat Jeff Van-Drew's district, please contact his office and demand his immediate resignation. He has completely sold out the people of New Jersey by supporting and disseminating Trump's lies. After his disgraceful party switch, he has become one of Trump's most militant supporters. Not only did he vote to object to the legally certified electoral college results, he amplified dangerous assertions he knew were untrue in a speech on the House floor. This behavior should not be forgiven. If you live in his district, call for his resignation.

This has been a stressful time for all of us. In just eight days Democrats will take control of the entire government. Let's ask our representatives to make sure that Trump will not remain in a position to further disrupt and hinder this constitutionally-mandated transfer of power.

Everyone at BlueWaveNJ hopes you and your families are staying safe and sane.

Donald Trump Must Be Removed from Office

Yesterday, Donald Trump incited a violent insurrection by a mob of his supporters, intended to overturn our democracy. Until yesterday, Trump’s actions were aptly termed a bloodless coup. Now we need to remove the word bloodless.

We must hold the president accountable. These events once again demonstrate Trump's unfitness to remain in office even for the 13 days left in his term OR in the future. His behavior is too egregious and dangerous.  Given yesterday's attempted coup and the continuing threat to the peaceful transfer of power, we cannot just wait for Trump to leave office. This is about maintaining the rule of law over the next two weeks and signaling that mob violence to overthrow elected officials and overturn elections will not be tolerated now or in the future and those that try it will be held accountable.

If the cabinet does not invoke the 25th amendment to remove him, BlueWaveNJ joins Indivisible's call for the House and Senate to impeach and convict him. Impeachment will force Republicans to choose whether they will continue to support a would-be dictator or uphold the peaceful transfer of power. It will also prevent him from ever holding elected federal office again.

Please call our NJ Congressional delegation and demand that the president is held accountable.  We also call for an investigation into the failure of law enforcement to prepare for the violence we all feared would materialize yesterday from the president's incitement. The difference between the police presence and even accommodation of the protestors yesterday compared to their overwhelming and violent response to the peaceful protests at the capital of the killing of George Floyd is chilling.

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.
