Below you'll find information about the races and specific ways you can get involved to help the Democrats gain control of the Senate.
Election Day: Tuesday, November 3, 2020 is a little over a month away.
There's a lot going on. Deep breath.
One thing that helps me stay grounded when everything is going haywire is taking the many things I'm reading and processing, and turning them into concrete action plans.
There are the many things I cannot control, and then there are the concrete steps I can take today to do my part.
In the last few weeks, the current President has forecasted his plans to steal the election.
My Jewish and Latin American immigrant friends whose families escaped coups and authoritarian regimes have long been sounding the alarm, but now the bells are ringing at a fever pitch.
I believe we're at an inflection point.
While I have never believed electoral politics would be THE thing that saved us, I DO believe it is one tool in holding the line. So many rights and protections have been eroded over the last almost four years. We cannot take another 4.
So with that preamble, here's what I've got for you below:
A strategic plan that outlines how my family and I plan to spend our time, talent, and money in these critical last few weeks before election day.
While we have young children which limits what tasks we take on, I've included links to many resources I've consulted which have additional ideas for those of you who have more flexibility and/or ability to move around in ways we can't right now.
My hope is that my plan inspires you to make your own plans.
My hope is that you join me and: EDUCATE & INSPIRE, DONATE, VOTE, GOTV, and PREPARE to CHOOSE DEMOCRACY & SAVE AMERICA.
Suerte! We can do this. We must.

I dedicate this poem to the the 3,000+ families who lost loved ones in Puerto Rico because of the Hurricanes three years ago.
New Publication Alert!
I’ve written before about the ways in which I can often trace my publications to personal and community relationships I’ve developed along the way.
My most recent OpEd, "Welfare Baby," which ran in the NY Daily News is no different.
What does it take to get published?
The simplest answer?
