For the past three years, Up2Us has driven political action to support Democrats across NY and the USA. We have petitioned, trained, canvassed, registered voters, phone-banked and staffed several campaign offices.
But we have done more than that. We have stepped up.
In 2017, three of our members-- Kristen Browde, Gail Markels and Ivy Pool, ran for the Town of New Castle Town Board, resulting in a gain of one seat.
In May of 2018 , our Executive Director, Holly McCall, ran successfully for the Board of Education in the Chappaqua School District.
One of our founding Board Members, Francesca Hagadus is currently running for Town Council in the Town of Mt. Pleasant, NY.
We are enormously proud of these members who have had the courage to put their names on ballots.
We are equally proud when candidates and electeds join.
If there are any other of our over 4000 members who are running or considering a run for office, please shout out below!
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
June 27, 2018
NEW YORK — Today , a coalition of Indivisible and grassroots groups issued the following statement:
“This week we witnessed irreparable damage done to our communities by an extremist Supreme Court that upheld the discriminatory Muslim Ban, ruled in favor of discrimination against LGBTQ individuals, supported states’ voter suppression tactics and dealt a massive blow to public sector unions and their members’ livelihoods.
“We cannot afford another lifetime appointment of a conservative zealot to the Supreme Court.
“The Supreme Court should be focused on upholding the law, not tearing it down to benefit corporations and bigots. With the unprecedented corruption, dishonesty, and intolerance displayed by the Trump administration, Democrats must stand united in opposing ANY judge put forth by President Trump until after the 2018 midterm elections.
“Senator Schumer, our fundamental civil rights are at stake. You have our support to do everything in your power to unite Democrats to keep this seat empty —for as long as necessary.”
