☷ Maplewood New Jersey - SOMA Action Kicks Off its Midterms Strategy to Help Save Democracy

Maplewood , state New Jersey
| 21
   SOMA Action , the South - Maplewood - based grassroots organization focused on driving progressive change , will launch its midterm elections campaign called “Democracy Strikes Back” on
   May 4th ( 5pm - 7pm )
    , with some very special guests .  
   The event with feature a
   meet - and - greet event
    with two of the three most vulnerable members of NJ’s Democratic House Delegation ,
   Mikie Sherrill
    ( NJ - 11 ) and
   Tom Malinowski
    ( NJ - 07 ) . The campaign is also supporting Andy Kim ( NJ - 03 ) . In 2018 , SOMA Action helped these candidates flip their districts , which led to the Democrats taking power in the House . This year , that Democratic majority is razor thin , and the fate of these NJ races could decide which party controls the House .  
   This year , due to redistricting , South Orange - Maplewood is now in NJ’s 11th Congressional district . This means that Mikie Sherrill will be on our ballot in the June primary , and , if she wins in November , she will represent us in Washington .
   But there’s more to SOMA Action’s campaign than these critical NJ House races . Democracy starts at home , but the battle to save it also means winning elections in critical battleground states . The group will focus on
   Pennsylvania
    ,
   Wisconsin
    , and
   Michigan
    , three swing states with races that will help determine the future of our democracy . When you join the campaign , you sign up for one of three Democracy Strikes Back Teams:
   • Join Team PA , and also help reelect Tom Malinowski .   
   • Join Team WI , and also help reelect Andy Kim .  
   • Join Team MI , and also help reelect Mikie Sherrill 
   From May through November , team captains will have weekly actions for their teams to help both their local and out - of - state candidates win their elections ( phone or text - banking; door - knocking; postcard writing; fundraising ) .  
   Says SOMA Action President Jessica James: Since our founding in 2017 , SOMA Action has channeled the energy of progressives in our community , turning outrage into positive action . The 2022 midterm elections might be the most critical yet for the future of our democracy . We are up against a Republican machine that has undermined our most sacred democratic processes . Democracy Strikes Back is SOMA Action ' s response . We’ll work together to win this fall , and have some fun while we do it . The force is with us!
   WHEN:
    Wednesday , May 4th 5pm - 7pm
   WHERE: 
    Maplewood Village , corner of Highland and Maplewood Avenues .
   Put on your best Star Wars costume , dig out your brightest lightsaber , dust off your dancing shoes , and swing by Maplewood Village on May the 4th at 5pm to meet and greet our NJ House delegation , register to vote , and join a team to help save our democracy . May the fourth be with ALL of us this midterm year .
