Virtual Vote Blue Buses starting this weekend!

Vote Blue 2020
Dear Tildenites!

While COVID and the need to protect voters and volunteers make Vote Blue buses unlikely between now and November 3rd, that isn’t stopping us from talking with every voter we can in the crucial, must-win state of Pennsylvania

Starting this Sunday afternoon, September 13th, we’ll be calling and texting voters in Pennsylvania for the Democratic Coordinated Campaign, aka “Back to Blue,” in support of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris and Democratic candidates in down-ballot races. Pennsylvania is a swing state this year on the presidential level, but there are also critical congressional, statewide, and state House and Senate races that will affect the lives of working families for years to come.

We need to win them all. Here’s how:

Join Vote Blue NYC and activists from all over New York City on a “virtual bus ride” to Pennsylvania. Sign up for our first virtual bus this Sunday starting at 4:30 pm.
After registering and before the phone bank, you’ll receive a Zoom link for access. You’ll need both a computer running Chrome or Firefox (laptop or desktop; sorry, no iPads) and a cell phone. Don’t worry if you’ve never done this before–we’ll give you a script and all the training you need, just like we do on our Vote Blue buses.

Vote Blue will be running three phone- or text-banks a week through Election Day; this Sunday is the beginning. We’ll send you a weekly list of Vote Blue and other volunteer opportunities in New York City so you won’t wake up on November 4th wishing you’d done more.

Sign up now and join us this Sunday to win Pennsylvania!

Tilden Celebrates Juneteenth !

Join us.

On June 19, 1865 — two and a half years after the Emancipation Proclamation — enslaved people in Galveston, Texas learned that they were finally free. They were informed by General Gordon Granger and his Union troops who declared this:
“All slaves are free. This involves an absolute equality of rights and rights of property between former masters and slaves, and the connection heretofore existing between them becomes that between employer and hired laborer.”
From that day forward, June 19 came to be celebrated as Juneteenth. Black Americans did not achieve equality of rights that day as General Granger said, but freedom was still something to celebrate while equality is something to fight for.
The celebration of Juneteenth has ebbed and flowed on a national scale since its first celebration. But this year, it takes on a different meaning. This Juneteenth coincides with the civil unrest and amplified demands for racial equality and justice that have spread across our country and the world. Black activists and allies are still in the streets, online, in city council meetings, at their statehouses, and contacting Congress demanding change.
This Juneteenth, I’m asking you to take a couple actions against racism, and then to join all of us at the DNC in celebrating Black history:
Watch and share this video to learn more about Juneteenth from Black DNC staff.

Voter roll purges overwhelmingly impact Black, student, and minority voters. Thanks to the DNC Tech Team, we just rolled out a tool for Democratic state parties and campaigns to engage with purged or inactive voters and help get them back on the rolls. Learn more about this important new DNC tool by clicking here.

Tune into the National Museum of African American History & Culture’s all-day Juneteenth virtual programming for some social-distancing celebration right here.
Juneteenth is a celebration of the strength and resilience of Black Americans in this country, but a celebration doesn’t mean the work is done. We’ve got a long way to go, Jeffrey, but today you can take action by getting involved with anti-racism organizations and resources on our website and learning more about Juneteenth.

Tilden update- NYC open restaurants

NYC’s Open Restaurant Program is an effort to implement a citywide multi-phase program to expand outdoor seating options for restaurants and bars to promote open space, enhance social distancing, and help them rebound in these difficult economic times.

NYC’s approach prioritizes geographic equity and allows us to reach the areas most impacted by COVID-19.

Please do share with any restaurant owners you know.
