Hudson Young Dems hold first Political Action Meetup
Over 25 Hudson County residents exchanged ideas, thoughts and plans on how to organize and move forward in the era of a Trump presidency at the Hudson County Young Democrats' first Political Action Meetup this past Sunday. Discussion centered on how to address a variety of issues that have arisen as a result of Trump's surprising win one month ago, which has inspired millions of Americans to political action.
"After the Presidential election, the outreach of individuals looking to get involved and take action has been incredible" said Brian Platt, President and co-founder of the Hudson Young Dems. "We are hoping to create a consistent, positive channel for anyone and everyone seeking to help fight against the racism, bigotry, sexism and hate that has been empowered and legitimized by the presidential election. Through policy, education, and action we hope to foster more meaningful conversations around key issues and build awareness for the challenges we are facing as a county and as a country."
Key items discussed at the event included how to better communicate information around the challenges faced by a variety of different communities both here in Hudson and across the country, how to support communities that are now threatened by violence and discrimination, how to ensure meaningful conversations about issues are held with those that might have different perspectives, and also how to focus and target collective action and create an impact in those areas and within those communities that need it most.
HCYD is planning to hold regular Political Action Meetups to take action and address a variety of issues and in a variety of ways, and will post information about upcoming events as soon as possible.
