NEWSLETTER: It Finally Happened. What Can We Do Now?

It finally happened.

Last week, conservative Supreme Court justices made it clear that they are going to kill Roe v. Wade. A draft of their appalling decision, written by Sam Alito, has been described as “a naked power grab.” 

Since the news broke last Monday night, all of us have been overwhelmed with emotion.

TONIGHT! Rally with Mikie Sherrill to Protect Abortion Rights!


Last night brought shocking — but not shocking — news: the leak of a vote and preliminary decision (written up by conservative Justice Sam Alito) that spells the END of Roe v. Wade's protections of abortion rights.
There are 26 states across America with legislation waiting to go into effect the instant this SCOTUS decision becomes final. These pieces of "trigger legislation" will drastically — and immediately — restrict the right to abortion in those states.

This is no time to be silent. 


Please join your NJ 11th for Change compatriots tonight at the rally, outside of Planned Parenthood in Montclair at 29 N. Fullerton Avenue in Montclair.
Bring your friends. Bring your families.

Today is GIVING TUESDAY — a day when people nationwide commit to support organizations whose missions they believe in.

Will you support NJ 11th for Change today?

NJ 11th for Change believes in democracy.
And we believe that 2022 is a crucial election year. 

  • Control of the House of Representatives is at stake. 
  • Losing the House means losing any chance to pass President Biden’s agenda.
  • The frightening wave of far-right extremism sweeping our nation — and our state! — means that NO SEAT IS SAFE, including our district’s representative, Mikie Sherrill. 



In 2022, we will need to muster all of our forces to protect our political gains. NJ 11th for Change has the hands-on experience, in-depth local knowledge, and committed grassroots volunteers to do it right — through laser-focused canvassing, postcarding, text banking, phone banking, voter education programs, calls to action, and more. 



  • In 2017-18 we ousted 23-year incumbent Rodney Frelinghuysen, beat back ultra-conservative Jay Webber, and launched Rep. Mikie Sherrill’s political career. 
  • In 2020 we made over 160,000 constituent contacts, to make sure that our target voters had the information they needed to vote — and defeat Trump — despite the election’s covid-related complexities.
  • In 2021 — facing races we knew would be uncomfortably close — we made over 135,000 constituent contacts, motivating voters who share our values but who have a history of infrequent voting. 



That’s why Rolling Stone Magazine, the Rachel Maddow Show, the New York Times, Indivisible, and the Washington Post have all recognized NJ 11th for Change as a force to be reckoned with!

No grassroots organization understands Congressional District 11 better than we do, or has more of what it takes to be effective. We are fighting right here on our home turf for the future of our democracy.

How Many Days Until
Election Day 2021
(November 2)?
6 Days


We're down to the wire — less than a week before Election Day!! — and the races from Governor down to town councils are all competitive. Based on recent polling, Governor Phil Murphy's double-digit lead from this summer is down to the single digits, and we're starting to lose sleep over it. 

South Jersey is polling strongly for Jack Ciattarelli (what are they thinking?!?), so we've got to make the most of  North Jersey's blue voters by maximizing turnout. NJ 11th for Change has identified five towns where we REALLY need to get out the vote (and where getting out the vote can make a difference down-ballot, too) and we'd like your help. Can you canvass? THIS IS OUR LAST CHANCE! Please sign up for one of these great opportunities!! We've got a Fridays with Frelinghuysen reunion canvass, a Wayne Wednesdays reunion canvass, a visit with Mikie, and more.

It doesn't have to BE your town for you to make a DIFFERENCE — a statewide difference — by knocking doors there. We hope you'll join us!
