More than 250 citizens from District 7 in New Jersey and District 8 in Pennsylvania attended a boisterous political rally and workshop held Sunday afternoon by Indivisible Lambertville-New Hope at the New Hope Eagle Volunteer Fire Company facility on Sugan Road.
Indivisible Lambertville-New Hope is an educational and advocacy organization concerned with issues facing the Affordable Care Act, environment, education, equality, and of causes specific to N.J. and P.A. The larger network of Indivisible groups in the U.S. numbers nearly 5,000, according to organization estimates.
Cindi Sternfeld of Lambertville leads the local group, and she addressed a lively crowd on Sunday, before attendees broke into approximately 10 sub-groups identified with issues around which members align. Other “tasks groups” enabled members to focus on legislative actions, communications, events, and social media.
What’s next for Indivisible Lambertville-New Hope?
“We are actively working on a number of issues and holding our legislators accountable to the people they were elected to serve. Where there is unfairness, threats to public safety and well-being, and where there is suppression of human rights as afforded by our Constitition, we will make our voices heard, and they will be loud.”
The group is hoping to next meet on the third Sunday in April, say leaders.
