Westchester Activists Hit the Road

The road to keeping the House majority runs through New York!
This past weekend, Westchester activists canvassed for Pat Ryan in NY-18, a district just north of Westchester that Democrats must hold this November. Sen. Shelley Mayer organized the bus to transport canvassers and George Latimer joined the crew to knock on doors. With four weeks to go, it’s time to put our energy into knocking on doors, phone banking, texting, and writing postcards to get out the vote!

It’s also time to make sure you and your family members are registered to vote and to start making a voting plan.

Absentee Voting Challenged

The Republican and Conservative parties have filed a last-minute, bad faith lawsuit to prevent New Yorkers from voting absentee under the law created to protect voters from COVID exposure. The lawsuit also attacks how absentee votes are counted in order to undermine the vote-counting process.

Click here to fill out this important survey about absentee voting that’s due Oct. 13th to help mobilize against this interference in our elections.

Postcard to NY Swing Districts

Please help us secure control of Congress by writing to flippable districts in upstate NY. Postcards should be mailed around October 15th. You can use your own postcards or ours. Pickup in Larchmont.

Protect the Freedom to Learn

Teach the Truth – Westchester is a grassroots organization that’s fighting back against attacks on school curriculum (Culturally Responsive and Sustaining Education & Social and Emotional Learning programs). Here in Westchester, we are seeing censorship of teachers, book banning, threats to school board members, and uproars at school board meetings by right-wing activists. Our opponents are well-organized and well-funded. 

Teach the Truth – Westchester, is conducting research in our community to better understand the major challenges, concerns, and priorities that face our school districts. As part of this research, we will be collecting surveys, conducting a virtual community listening session, and gathering personal stories. The conversations and data collected will be used to better understand the needs of our community and guide our efforts moving forward.
