As we celebrate the New Year and head into 2019 we want to thank you for making BlueWaveNJ's 2018 accomplishments possible.
BlueWaveNJ members participated in over 1,700 canvassing shifts, that resulted in knocking on over 51,000 doors. We handed out over 20,000 postcards at train stations and canvassing events comparing the candidates positions on healthcare and the environment. The blue wave swept through New Jersey and we are proud that almost our entire congressional delegation is blue.
But BlueWaveNJ's work did not stop with the election. During the last two months, our issue advocacy at the state level continued to expand, working with both the Governor and legislature to push back against a bad redistricting / gerrymandering bill, supporting a $15 minimum wage and expanded voting rights, as well as helping to launch a No Fossil Fuel Projects Campaign for our state. In addition, our health care group was busy ensuring that New Jerseyans were aware of the Dec. 15th deadline for continued ACA coverage.
Our 2019 plans are even more ambitious and include both state and national advocacy. Read our national priorities below:
And thanks to your grassroots activism that flipped the house, BlueWaveNJ will be busy working with New Jersey's newly elected Congressional delegation to demand the House pass critical national priorities from health care and infrastructure to the protection and restoration of our Democracy and Constitutional Rights. Remember electing Democrats is only the first step, the next is to remind our politicians why we elected them. Support our efforts by signing up for a bus to Washington during the last week in January.
