Press release from: Hamm For Senate

NEWARK, NJ: Lawrence Hamm, Founder and Chairman of the People's Organization for Progress (POP), Chairman of New Jersey For Bernie 2020 and longtime activist, will be delivering a stack of petitions with over 2500 signatures to the NJ Division of Elections today, March 16, in order to cement his position on the ballot for U.S. Senate during the June 2 Primary.

It has been an exciting three months for his grassroots campaign, as over 100 volunteers signed on to help get Hamm's name on the NJ ballot. Although the deadline to submit petitions is March 30, Hamm decided to collect his documents early due to the unknown impact that the Coronavirus will have on everyday life in the state. Many volunteers were able to drop off their signatures on March 14, and more are still expected to come in, which could increase the count well over 4,000.

Hamm, a progressive, is aligned with Senator Bernie Sanders and supports many of Sanders' positions like, Medicare for All, Paid Sick Leave, Green New Deal, and universal child care and pre-K. "I'm a radical, but one who wants radical change in the condition of people in this country," he told Patch. "There's a greater gap between rich and the poor - or actually, the rich and the rest of us - in human history."

"I'm trying to bring the programmatic ideas of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. into the public policy arena," Hamm continued. "We need a fundamental restructuring of our social system in this country. Rather than just have programs that feed the hungry, we need to reshape an economic system that produces hungry people."

About Lawrence Hamm: He is Chairman of New Jersey For Bernie 2020 and Co-Founder and Chairman of the People's Organization for Progress. He has been a voice for civil rights since high school, when he became the youngest Board of Education member in the US, at 17.
