Not Your Typical Email Blast

Four days ago, Doug Jones stunned the nation by declaring victory over Roy Moore, becoming the first Democrat to win a U.S. seat in the state of Alabama since 1992.  At Politics Reborn, we didn't want to flood you with one more uplifting email that simply asks you to donate. Instead, I want to speak from the heart and write the following:  

We should have tremendous joy in the fact someone as despicable as Roy Moore will not be serving in the U.S. Senate. However, we must not become complacent now that the election has ended.

I have been involved in this field for some time now and I have seen how our obsessions with elections have often hindered our ability to effectively organize. Elections can not be the be-all and end-all for social movements. 

At Politics Reborn, we are trying to do something different. At Politics Reborn, our goal is to build a sense of community and give power back to the people. Instead of simply sending out mass email blasts asking members to donate or sign an online petition, we make more personal asks such as asking members to schedule a conference call with us so we can better understand who they are and how we can truly empower them.

We organize Film Nights and Book Discussions so we can form more effective social connections with our members, while becoming more educated organizers.

We have helped empower various members become leaders in their community and we are hoping you will strengthen this organization and sign up to volunteer if you haven't already done so.

If you have signed up to volunteer, you can always take the time to fill out this survey as well so we can better understand how to better empower you.

Before you know it, it will be 2018 and we need this social movement to elevate to the next level. Signing online petitions and attending marches can not be the last step to creating an effective social movement.

We need your help registering voters, educating and engaging your community to become politically involved, and changing the national consciousness.

Victory For Our Candidates! Historical Upset

Last Tuesday, Politics Reborn showed what strong community organizing can do! We are proud to say that on Election Day, Reform Stamford was victorious!  Nina Sherwood, of Politics Reborn, helmed a slate of candidates who wanted to fight back against corporate interests and bring the power back to the people of Stamford. Eight of the eleven candidates on the slate won, six of whom have never ran for office before. It was an uphill fight, but grassroots organizing, with the support of Politics Reborn, won the day!

Reform Stamford now occupies a third of the seats of the Stamford Board of Representatives! The establishment better look out!


Keep the revolution of community empowerment going by donating 27 dollars now.

 

Come celebrate our victories and help Politics Reborn plan its next steps at our Membership Meeting, tomorrow evening at The Cherry Tree in Brooklyn. Have a slice, raise your glass to victory, and roll up your sleeves, because the work continues! RSVP HERE

VICTORY FOR REFORM STAMFORD AND POLITICS REBORN

One of Politics Reborn's great successes has come through its long-standing support of an unusually dynamic organizer in Fairfield County, CT.

Since the Democratic National Convention, Bernie Sanders delegate, Nina Sherwood, has turned the attention of her large base of political activists from campaigning for Bernie to campaigning for other candidates, pushing for Progressive legislation on local, state and national issues, and becoming involved in local Party and City politics along Connecticut's Gold Coast, from Greenwich and Stamford up through Norwalk and Bridgeport.

Lately, the focus has been on Reform Stamford, a slate of eight candidates, endorsed by Politics Reborn that Nina put together to challenge the Developer-oriented Establishment Dems of Stamford, CT.

In five primary elections on September 12th, Nina and three others won by very wide margins - landslide victories.

The fifth election turned into an epic battle for Reform Stamford candidate, Ines Saftic, who came in second in a three-way race for two seats on the Board of Representatives. Ines, new to politics, beat out a sitting Rep who not only had held her seat for 31 years, but was the Democratic Majority Leader on the Board of Reps.  This was a phenomenal victory.

However, since she only won by one vote, the results triggered an automatic recount, and following the recount, a run-off election was scheduled on October 3rd. Reform Stamford rose to the challenge, and Ines won the day.

Reform Stamford and Politics Reborn couldn’t have pulled it off without the support of organizers, volunteers, and contributions from other progressives who are fighting for change.

This win would not have been possible without the support of Politics Reborn. To keep this revolution going, we need your support. There are organizers and candidates across the country that we are eager to support but we can't do it without you help. Want to help up keep the movement going? Want to see successful progressive change? Please donate to Politics Reborn.
