Almost 200 Constituents Have Registered for the Congressional Reception, We Still Need you to Join Us!
The 2017 New Jersey Congressional Reception will be held on Wednesday July 26, 2017 in Washington, D.C. and Congressman Lance and Congressman Norcross are joining us.
Now is the time to thank them and to encourage their colleagues in Congress to join them
Each of New Jersey’s twelve U.S. Representatives have been invited to attend the Congressional Reception. Last year all but one of our fourteen representatives either attended or sent senior staff to the reception.
Please take a minute and thank Senator Booker and if you live in their districts, Representatives Lance and Norcross for attending. Our Advocacy Toolkit has numerous ways to reach your representatives. Once you click on the link go to the send a message tab next to their photo.
We have added posts to Facebook announcing members who plan to attend.
Constituents from across the state are registering to attend the Congressional Reception. To date, almost 200 people have registered for the event. But we still have plenty of room on the 6 buses that will be departing from throughout the state and we need you to join us.
Click here to register for the Congressional Reception. The Congressional Reception will take place in the Dirksen Senate Auditorium on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C and other details are available here.
We have less than six weeks to go so today is the best day to register.
The theme for this year’s Congressional Reception is “No Cuts to Housing.”
Cuts are hurting our communities that serve low-income families, the homeless and those with special needs. And we need you to join us in Washington and to encourage Senator Menendez and your Representatives to join us.
If you have registered for the Congressional Reception please email your elected officials have not yet told us they are coming, please email or call their office or tag them in a social media post, encouraging them to come.
President Trump’s proposed budget would devastate funding to the U.S. Dept. of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and Medicaid. We need to use our voices to protect the funding for federal programs that are working to end homelessness in New Jersey and ensure that homelessness across the state does not increase. Preventing homelessness is an economic issue for all of us.
