We did it. Democrats have taken back the White House, the Senate, and maintained their majority in the house. We hope you got a chance to exhale and recharge this week, because the fight doesn't stop now. We're ready to push harder than ever to make sure Democrats pass real progressive policy that will improve people's lives. If you're ready to join us, or curious about what we're planning for this year, we hope you'll come to our first ever Persist Brooklyn Welcome Gathering on Wednesday! Our community is made up of people with all different skill levels and experience, so whether you've never volunteered before or this is your 500th campaign, we'll help you get in where you fit in. Get ready to dream big & fight hard, Persist Brooklyn PS - If you missed the #BKMayoralForum last week hosted by a coalition of 20+ grassroots organizations, including Persist BK, you can still hear from the 17 candidates by watching the recording here.
