On Wednesday, March 14 at 7 p.m., Action Together New Jersey (ATNJ) will host an online Facebook Live event with Senator Cory Booker for their members and allies in which the Senator will discuss legislation before Congress, update activists on the issues and take questions from the viewing audience
The event aims to connect activists with their Senator and give them an opportunity to ask any questions they have ahead of the work they’ll be doing to register voters and get people to the polls. ATNJ plans to host a series of similar interactive sessions in coming months, to give members accessibility to their elected officials and to encourage open dialogue. Questions will be accepted in advance and also taken during the live stream.
"We appreciate the opportunity to connect with our senator and to hear updates about the causes that matter most to us. I’m especially looking forward to hearing more about the Environmental Justice Act and efforts to oppose toxic nominees to the EPA,” said organizer Christine Clarke, Environmental Director with Action Together New Jersey. “I hope the senator will receive many questions and and have ample time to answer them,” she added.
“Our statewide activist group has been working hard over the last year to defend our progressive values and protect the public interest,” said Uyen “Winn” Khuong, Executive Director of Action Together New Jersey. “Our teams have put countless hours and enormous effort into the issues that matter to us, and we’re grateful for the chance to hear what Senator Booker has to say about them.”
Anyone interested in watching and participating in the event should “Like” or “Follow” Action Together New Jersey's Facebook page to be notified when the event goes live on March 14. Questions may be submitted in advance through a Google form or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
