NEVERTHELESS we PERSISTED in writing well over 10,000 + postcards to voters leading up to this election (special shout-outs to the fabulous NYC4WARREN and Central Brooklyn Independent Democrats for making this possible!)
PBK representing at GRAND ARMY PLAZA for JAIME HARRISON and the rest of our ALL-STARS!
Ballots are being cast, the White House is a Covid Hot-spot, and climate change remains an existential threat. What is one supposed to do? Well the truth is no one can do everything but you can at least do "some thing." And all of those "some things" together add up to BIG THINGS. And that is what PERSIST BROOKLYN is all about. JOIN US at any one of our upcoming events to make your difference!

We are increasingly concerned with Trump’s assault on the election and our democratic rights. Persist Brooklyn is committed to mobilizing in defense of the election. As a result, Study Group Session 5 will be focused on the Republican efforts to undermine the election and how we can respond to an election-related power grab. Sign up here!
We call on the media to uphold their responsibility to report elections accurately. An election ends, not when the polls close, but only when the last vote is counted. Media should begin NOW to normalize the idea that we will probably have to wait weeks after November 3, 2020 for final results and should lay the foundation that a delayed result is not due to a corrupted process. SIGN & SHARE THE PETITION NOW The stakes are our DEMOCRACY!
