March Newsletter: It’s Still “Not Me, Us”

Dear Friends, 

Our lives have radically changed this week. While we now all face many uncertainties and while this crisis has changed our strategy and priorities, this campaign isn’t going anywhere. This week, Bernie laid out clearly the kinds of policies and mass state mobilization we need to tackle this pandemic. Check it out here

So, while we’re at home, let’s talk to our friends, family members, neighbors and let them know that in this time of crisis this campaign and movement are continuing to fight to put our health and safety first. Most of all, if you feel isolated, reach out. You can join our weekly check-in call, or get connected to the national campaign with a Volunteer Launch Call, and also check out some more resources below.

Let Us Know How You’re Organizing in Response to COVID 19

In light of the COVID-19 crisis we have seen many from Philly for Bernie coordinate with those from other communities and mutual-aid societies to protect the most vulnerable. We’d love to hear your story. As a part of a video project to inspire and motivate others, we’re requesting a 30 second video on what you’re doing to organize and effect change in this time of need. When you are done send your video to John at johnbzimmerman@gmail.com.

Get Connected with Mutual Aid and Other Resources

We’ve got to support each other at this time. Check out a list of Mutual Aid links as well as information and resources on schools, food, utilities, transportation, health and other volunteer opportunities on our website: “Resources for Philadephia and Beyond” and “Information for Citizens of Philadelphia County”
