Our Voice PA: Engaging Millennials to Govern

OUR VOICE presents an afternoon townhall discussion featuring former DNC Chair candidate Samuel Ronan and other guests at the Sanctuary Stunt Studio in beautiful downtown Hazleton, PA.

Samuel Ronan was the ONLY DNC Chair candidate who proposed getting big money out of politics.

Samuel Ronan was the ONLY DNC Chair candidate who could unashamedly say BERNIE GOT SCREWED and the DNC colluded with Hillary Clinton to steal the nomination.

Samuel Ronan was the ONLY DNC Chair candidate to call out the party for not letting the Bernie Sanders supporters speak at the Convention.

Risking the peril of a political career, Samuel Ronan stood on stage against the chosen party elites and used his opportunity to speak to be OUR VOICE by calling out the injustices of a Democratic party who SOLD OUT to corporate lobby interests.

He used an international platform on CNN to speak TRUTH TO POWER and hold these greed driven leaders of ours accountable.

AND HE'S NOT YET DONE!!!

Now Sam is traveling around the country to motivate outsiders and millennials to not only register to vote, and to show up at the polls, but to take action by putting themselves on ballots for local, state, and federal positions.

JOIN US for a free night of political interaction. This is your chance to use YOUR VOICE to a man who has been charged to speak OUR VOICE!

The event is free, but seating is limited.

Tax March on Plainfield NJ

IF YOU PLAN TO ATTEND YOU MUST RSVP - FOR PLANNING OF BATHROOMS, FOOD, SECURITY, SOUND, ETC - THE ORGANIZERS AND THE CITY MUST KNOW THE SIZE OF THE CROWD.
Throughout the presidential campaign, Donald Trump promised that he would release his tax returns "later." Then, just a few days after Trump assumed office, his top adviser, Kellyanne Conway, said that he wouldn't release his tax returns ever, because the American people "don't care." We're here to say that we do care.

Join us at Cedar Brook Park in Plainfield on Saturday, April 15, 2017, to march and show Donald Trump that he owes us transparency. Two-thirds of Americans are concerned that he may be putting his interests ahead of the country's. Until we see his tax returns, we will not let let up.

To help organize and volunteer sign up below:

President Trump’s xenophobic immigration policies and harsh rhetoric against immigrants threaten our country’s values while isolating immigrant communities that are the fabric of our nation. On Thursday, April 13th, campuses across Boston will stand together to show solidarity and support for immigrants in our communities and on our campuses. Join us as we have members of our communities share their narratives, celebrate diverse cultures, and speak out against this administration’s attacks on our friends, family, and neighbors. 

We support Cosecha, a nonviolent movement fighting for permanent protection, dignity and respect for the 11 million undocumented immigrants in the United States. Cosecha is determined to build the resistance that will dramatically shift the public opinion around immigration in this country and win permanent protection, dignity, and respect for the entire immigrant community. We will be building support and momentum for A Day Without Immigrants on May 1st to remind the American public that this country cannot function without the labor of our community - the immigrant community.

We support The Safe Communities Act, which would protect the civil rights of all Massachusetts residents by making sure our tax dollars are not used to help the Trump administration deport immigrant families or to create a Muslim registry. We recognize that our communities need protection in this moment, but that we also need a strategy of resistance to mobilize our communities for the long-term and national fight for permanent protection.

Students, faculty, staff, and workers are also organizing to make their respective campuses a #SanctuaryCampus. The movement is about claiming spaces of resistance and protection for our country's most vulnerable people - including undocumented immigrants, Muslims, people of color, women, transgender, and queer folks.

Organizers and co-sponsors include Sanctuary Campus Coalition Northeastern University, Movimiento Cosecha, the Student-Immigrant Movement (SIM), COMBAT (Coalition to Organize and Mobilize Boston Against Trump), EmersonUNITE, Berklee Activist Network, and Harvard Graduate Student Union-UAW Organizing Committee.
