PPro Endorses Larry Hamm ’78 for U.S. Senate Seat in New Jersey
In keeping with our mission of educating the broader Princeton community in the merits and methods of community activism, civic engagement, and making positive change through grass-roots organizing, Princeton Progressives endorses the candidacy of Larry Hamm ’78 for United States Senate, representing New Jersey. Larry has spent his entire life as a tireless and effective activist for progressive causes, including being a campus leader while a student at Princeton in ultimately succeeding in compelling the University to divest from the apartheid South African economy. Larry is currently chairman of the People’s Organization for Progress, a political organization based in Newark which seeks to build unity among community organizations. PPro believes that Larry embodies all the qualities needed to be an outstanding member of Congress in advancing progressive ideals.
