Bernie isn't a scheduled speaker in Newburgh.

Hudson Valley Rally for Bernie
Join us on the Newburgh waterfront for the Hudson Valley Rally for Bernie on April 15th at 6pm! Help us spread the word by sharing this event! If you or someone you know are interested in speaking at the rally, please let us know ASAP.

Here is the schedule at this point. The speaker lineup is still evolving, but we sould have more details soon. We are collaborating with the national campaign, but this is not an official campaign event. Bernie is certainly invited, but surrogate speakers are more likely.

FOOD! We have at least 2 food trucks already committed, working on more.

10am-12pm -Roundtable discussion open to the public discussing Bernie's platform and how it applies at the local level

4-6pm. Canvassing and Volunteer signup. Donna Waterman, the District 18 field captain for the national campaign, will be down on the waterfront site signing people up to volunteer for canvassing and other opportunities

6pm-Sunset. The Rally will include local leaders of the Latino and African American community, members of city council, and regional politicians running for congress. We also hope to have representatives of various environmental groups, teachers, and celebrity surrogates. We hope to have some kind of memorial for those lost to gun violence in Newburgh. If the campaign is able to send us performers, we might have a musical performance at the end of the night.

If you make it, I'll buy you a beer to celebrate your birthday!
