Phonebank with us on Thursday at 6pm ET to get out the vote for Rep. Jamaal Bowman before his primary.

My name is Susan. Like Rep. Jamaal Bowman, I was once a school teacher. I used to teach kids how to find and use their power. Now I show adults.

That’s why I’m writing to ask you to join Bend the Arc: Jewish Action Riverdale in getting out the vote for Rep. Bowman ahead of his primary for NY-16.

This race may define who controls Congress. No matter who wins the White House, we need progressive champions like Rep. Bowman — either as Congressional allies to push progressive legislation with Biden or as critical roadblocks on Trump’s highway to authoritarianism.

Rep. Bowman was sent to Congress on the promise that a high school teacher turned progressive leader would take on gun violence to make schools safe. That a kid who grew up in public housing could be a Congressman who fights for affordable housing. And that a student raised in public schools by a single mother could be a champion for education and child care. Not just because of who he was, but because of who he chooses to be today: a transformational leader who kept his promises and shares our values.

RSVP to phonebank with us this Thursday to get out the vote for Rep. Jamaal Bowman before his primary.

Because of his fight for working families like mine, he’s facing an opponent who is funded and recruited by MAGA billionaires and private prison profiteers. In fact, they’re the same donors who helped end Roe v. Wade and supported Trump’s failed efforts to end democracy and steal the White House.

Rep. Bowman has brought back $1 billion to our housing, education, and child care crises, but this race will also have consequences nationally, in our backyard and yours.

That’s why the right has a record-breaking war chest of over $100 million to spend against him. That’s millions in anti-Black, anti-truth television ads, mailers, and phone calls.

That’s why our chapter joined #JewsForJamaal to beat his opponent’s anti-abortion GOP money with people power.

And that’s why we’re counting on you to have our back and RSVP to get out the vote for Jamaal.

Let’s teach these Republican donors a lesson,

Susan W.
Bend the Arc: Jewish Action Riverdale
