Liuba Grechen-Shirley: Another Young New York Progressive Poised to Shock the World

On June 26th, a political earthquake occurred in New York City that rocked the entire country, as Democratic Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez pulled one of the greatest upsets by a left-wing candidate in American political history. On November 6th, in the outer reaches of the New York Metropolitan Area, Liuba Grechen-Shirley could match AOC’s magic by unseating longtime incumbent and unapologetic Islamophobe, Rep. Peter King.

Like Ocasio-Cortez, Grechen Shirley has an unwavering progressive agenda: supporting Medicare for All, a $15 minimum wage, the rights of every worker to organize, and the re-allocation of excess defense spending for progressive ends – and, in marked contrast to her opponent, she defends the human rights of immigrants.

The race is close and Liuba needs your support. Inspired once again by Ocasio-Cortez, Grechen Shirley is running a classic grassroots campaign, going door-to-door, speaking with as many voters as humanly possible. Liuba supports complete public financing for elections, and will not take a single dime of corporate money. So, any help you can provide will go a very long way towards having another true progressive in the New York Congressional delegation.

Here are 2 ways to help:

1) Toss in as much as you can to help us help bring home a win;

2) Volunteer with the campaign.  You can make calls from anywhere, or help walk a neighborhood in district.  Email us right now and we’ll get you connected to our efforts on her behalf.

Thanks so much for anything you can do right now.

Onward to victory!
