Hi Fabulous BID Friends and Members,

With the leak of the brief to overturn Roe vs. Wade, I hope those of you who have been on the sidelines, busy living your lives while unknowingly taking our democracy and rights for granted, have received a wakeup call.

We need to hear from you! You have an opportunity NOW to take action. We’ve done the work for you. All you have to do is show up for the events listed below or order cards directly from us to pick up and participate in a grassroots community effort to help protect not just our voting rights which are being taken away, but as we see a woman’s right to choose.

Sign up through Eventbrite, so we know how many cards to order and can properly prepare for the events.

Postcards to Swing States

  • May 18th from 6:00 to 8:00 PM, McCandless Room, Tenafly Borough — Post card writing to Arizona and Georgia — Eventbrite Registration May 18
  • June 22nd 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM, McCandless Room, Tenafly Borough — Post card writing to New Hampshire and Nevada — Eventbrite Registration June 22
  • September (Date TBD) — Post card writing to additional states such as Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and North Carolina when the cards become available.

For those of you who can’t make it and want to do activism on your own, you can pick up cards for the evenings of May 18 and June 22, provided you send Mary and me an email in advance so we can personally set aside cards for you.

Young people don’t know what it was like 50 years ago before Roe Vs. Wade when women risked their lives and their futures to end an unwanted pregnancy due to a whole host of personal circumstances including rape and incest. We need together to have our voices heard in advance of the midterms, and keep the Senate away from those who would dangerously take us back in time. We are at a serious inflection point in our nation’s history, and we all need to step up to the plate!!!

Together we need to participate in our current voting rights initiative which is more important than ever, so please sign up for our May and June events and/or go to Vote Riders’ website to engage in the amazing work being done to register disenfranchised individuals.

Help on Your Own Schedule Through Vote Riders

You can also help individuals get registered through Vote Riders in select states like Florida and Texas where thousands of voters are currently being denied their Democratic right to vote.

By clicking on this link: Vote Riders, you can select the best time and place to individually or with small groups of friends/ family engage in their current organized offerings in Florida. They have already provided volunteer opportunities in Georgia and will be moving across the country over time. Please make every effort to sign up and participate because this is a very important piece to securing the right to vote!

We Need Your Financial Help!

Finally, we need your financial support. We have to cover the cost of insurance, printing, postage, etc. and the steering committee can’t do this alone. Please click on the link below to contribute whatever you can. We greatly appreciate your support as we continue with our grassroots activism.

Our Future Is at Stake!

We know you’re busy and consumed with Ukraine, the 24/7 news cycle, and your hectic lives. However, as you know, our democracy is fragile and our rights are slipping away as many sit on the sidelines. Our democracy may not be physically in danger, like what the courageous Ukrainians are experiencing, but for us it is at the ballot box where most democracies end along with human rights and women’s rights.

We all need to consider this election cycle like 2020! It is imperative to stand up and take action now!

We hope to hear from you!

Warm regards,

Lori Sackler, BID Founder and President
