What's coming up?
Essex Rising has several upcoming events. Our Progressive Discussions series kicked off Sunday June 12th with the Green Party candidate for NJ governor, Seth Kaper-Dale. He described the amazing work he has been doing in Central New Jersey, especially with housing and sanctuary for refugees. He is now the only candidate fully behind Medicare-for-All in NJ and presented strong economic justifications. He also explained why he believes his role outside the two big parties is vital for NJ. You can view the video online via our Facebook page.
