Mole's Progressive Democrat

The Progressive Democrat Newsletter grew out of the frustration of the 2004 election. Originally intended for New York City progressives, its readership is now national. For anyone who wants to be alerted by email whenever this newsletter is updated (usually weekly), please send your email address and let me know what state you live in (so I can keep track of my readership).

    OREGON FOCUS: Blogs, Neighborhood Leaders, Alternative Energy, Groups and Events

    You can help win both the Presidency and the Senate by donating through my Oregon Act Blue Site.

    BLOGGING OREGON: BlueOregon is a place for progressive Oregonians to gather 'round the water cooler and share news, commentary, and gossip.

    The Democratic candidate for Oregon's Senate seat is Jeff Merkley. Merkley has MAJOR union support as well as the support of the Sierra Club, Planned Parenthood, 21st Century Democrats, and Council for a Livable World, among MANY others. You can read Merkley's stands on the issues here.

    Go here to volunteer to help Merkley win.

    Even more importantly, you can become a Neighborhood Leader for the Oregon Democratic Party and be a major part of Victory 2008.

    Here are progressive events and groups in Oregon: (events first, groups at the end)
