Trenton, NJ — Amidst mounting global concern over the harrowing atrocities committed against the Palestinian people, in a bold and resolute move, the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) submitted today 48 delegates from across the state running”Uncommitted” on the ballot in New Jersey for the upcoming primary election on June 4th.

The Biden administration’s unwavering complicity in Israel’s bombardment of Gaza has deeply troubled advocates for human rights and justice. The refusal of the Biden administration to call for a permanent ceasefire in Gaza, despite two-thirds of voters’ support, has severely undercut Biden’s chances of winning reelection this fall. After hundreds of thousands of voters across the country have already uncommitted to genocide starting in Michigan, New Jersey’s 3 DSA chapters are joining the movement to pressure Biden to change course in the face of injustice.

“The inclusion of the “Uncommitted” option on the ballot serves as not just a powerful statement of dissent but a testament to our unwavering commitment to principles of justice, equity, and human dignity,” Mia Matthews, member of the Uncommitted NJ Campaign said. “It measures the power of ordinary New Jersey working people to refuse and uncommit to genocide and oppression.”

Made possible by the tireless efforts of grassroots organizers, activists, and allies, DSA affirms their commitment to fighting for a permanent ceasefire, an end to U.S. funding of Israel’s war machine, and toward the liberation of Palestine.
