Dear Fellow Activists,
We are excited to let you know that Hudson Valley Strong will be partnering with Indivisible The Fight Is On (ITFIO), a Dutchess County based coordinating organization comprised of sixteen community based teams. These teams, like Hudson Valley Strong, operate autonomously and locally while working together as a larger network to strengthen our voice and extend our reach.
Political action, individually and in coalition, has been the cornerstone of Hudson Valley Strong, and this partnership with ITFIO allows us to better achieve our goals. We will benefit from the scale, reach and shared resources and expertise of the larger ITFIO network while maintaining our identity and autonomy as a Northern Dutchess County based group with members from around the greater Hudson Valley. Rima Liscum will be spearheading the Hudson Valley Strong efforts in alliance with ITFIO.
Locally based meetings and actions will continue and there will be additional opportunities to join larger ITFIO initiatives. We now also have access to extensive resources including a comprehensive set of weekly action priorities, larger ITFIO sponsored countywide and CD 19 events, and social events to network with fellow activists from across our region.
All Hudson Valley Strong members are cordially invited to ITFIO’s August Social to be held at Mahoney’s Pub at the Poughkeepsie Train Station (35 Main Street, Poughkeepsie, NY) on Saturday, August 5th from 4 to 6 pm. This event will feature guest speaker Michael Kink who will address the New York Constitutional Convention. In addition, you will be able to meet local candidates including Robin Lois (Dutchess County Comptroller), Christie Acker (State Supreme Court Justice) and others. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org if you will be able to attend.
Hudson Valley Strong was founded to provide its membership with a prominent platform to support their political activism. We are proud of our member’s incredible efforts to deliver on that vision, and we are confident that partnering with ITFIO will sustain that success well into the future.
Yours in activism,
Hudson Valley Strong Steering Committee
