“We spend January 1st walking through our lives, room by room, drawing up a list of work to be done, cracks to be patched. Maybe this year, to balance the list, we ought to walk through the rooms of our lives ... not looking for flaws but for potential.”
Ellen Goodman

💃 Stepping into the roaring 20s 💃

Happy New Year! 2019 was a year of many firsts for The Broad Room. We hired our first full-time staff member, launched our first membership program ( the Broad Collective), got a brand new look and feel ( check it out), and trained EVEN. MORE. WOMXN! This week, we’re sharing our plans to cancel the patriarchy in 2020.

P.S. New year, new plan! Our beloved Broad Memo will be moving from weekly to bi-weekly in 2020.

For The Broad Room, all politics is local and it lives beyond your polling site. Over the next 365 days, we’re running 10 free activist trainings for more than 500 young womxn and non-binary folks in New York City. And that’s just the beginning. We’ll be knocking on more than 4,000 doors, including bussing broads to knock out-of-state doors for the Presidential Election. We’re making over 6,000 calls for local womxn candidates. We’re hosting 3 networking events. And we're Getting Out the Count for Census 2020. So yeah, we are busy.

With historic elections on the horizon—nationally and at home in NYC—we cannot afford to fail. THE FACTS: In 11 months, we’ll head to the polls to vote for our next President. In 23 months, New Yorkers will have a chance to elect new reps to almost every local office. We’re talking 35 open council seats, Mayor, Comptroller, Borough President, you name it! If we’re going to change the face of leadership in New York, send true progressives to Albany, and put a Democrat in the White House, we need an army of activists to get us there. That’s exactly what The Broad Room is building.


We're entering 2020 ready for battle. Make sure you're set up to fight alongside us!
