New Jersey Women for Biden will host a virtual phone bank on Sunday afternoon, where volunteers — including Lt. Gov. Sheila Oliver, First Lady Tammy Murphy, Reps. Bonnie Watson Coleman (D-Ewing) and Mikie Sherrill (D-Montclair), and Senate President Pro-Tempore Teresa Ruiz (D-Newark) — will call ino battleground states to help boost the chances of Joe Biden winning the presidency.
“Over the last four years, we’ve seen unprecedented attacks on women’s rights — particularly reproductive rights,” the Biden campaign said on its invitation. “But, we also saw how big of an impact women had on the 2018 election that gave Democrats the majority in the House of Representatives.”
The event is sponsored by Biden for President and the New Jersey Democratic State Committee, along with the NJDSC Women’s Caucus, Jersey Girls 4 Joe, NJ 11 for Change and Africans for Biden.
Assemblywoman Shavonda Sumter (D-Paterson), Democratic congressional candidate Amy Kennedy and New Jersey Working Families state diretor Sue Altman will also participate.
“We have an opportunity to not only finish the Blue Wave that 2018 started, but also elect women up and down the ballot who will champion women’s rights at all levels of government,” the Biden campaign said.
