We Rise Forum - NYC / Newark

Love Army Volunteers

Join us in Newark!

This community event is FREE and open to the public with an RSVP.

This is the community organizing component of Van Jones' We Rise initiative to provide #LoveArmy members (that's us!) with tools we need to empower our communities at the grassroots level. With the help of seasoned veterans and a kick-butt program, we're going to collectively advance our knowledge of organizing, identify nearby community members to do it with—plan some local activities and get going.

Let's get to work and make Van proud.

We have a 250 person capacity limit at Newark City Hall where we're holding the event. Please make sure to invite your friends and RSVP >> so we can reserve your seat!

Newark City Hall is just as easy for New Yorkers to get to as city spaces and is super convenient for New Jersey people too, so we’re holding our NYC/Newark #LoveArmy event here. We’ll be in the beautiful, historic Council Chambers room which seats 250 – so we’re looking forward to an excellent night of community organizing and networking.

    Hey Lovers! We’re having our first Justice Book Club meeting on Nov 5 @ 2:30, instead of today as I originally hoped. We’ll have a second gathering in late Nov. or early December. Can you get Van’s The Messy Truth and join us on Nov 5? Here’s the link to RSVP https://www.lovearmy.org/kimiwei/nj_justice_book_club

    I’m looking forward to an energizing session of planning and networking tonight. Teams like ours can bring new resources and inspiration into our communities — and they’re truly needed right now.
