A Visit to Our Senators

Tuesday, January 24th, Essex Rising, in coordination with MoveOn.org, ascended upon One Gateway Center in Newark and held a vocal and physical outreach to Senator Cory Booker and Senator Bob Menendez. More than 100 protesters held up signs telling the Senators to “Stop the Swamp Cabinet” (#swampcabinet) and to represent their constituents in saying NO to Trump’s picks- Session, DeVos and Pruitt specifically.

Joined by The Solidarity Singers of the New Jersey State Industrial Union Council, the group of 100+ sang and chanted for an hour while a group of 15 went into the offices to speak to the Senators’ staff.

The group will meet again next Tuesday the 31st when the Senators will be in their Newark offices.
