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).

Location: Brooklyn, New York, United States

I am a research biologist in NYC. Married with two kids living in Brooklyn.

    Sacramento, CA Events

    This comes from Sacramento for Democracy's calendar:

    FEBRUARY 17 Love Lobby Day at the state capitol, if you can stay and lobby our representatives there will be a training event then we take on the Capitol. Sponsored by EQCA supported by Equality Action NOW . On Tuesday, February 17, Equality California, Equality Action NOW, and other partnering organizations to be announced, will co-host a legislative lobby day at the California State Capitol. The purpose of the lobby day will be to urge legislators to support SR 7 (Leno) and HR 5 (Ammiano), companion resolutions in the State Senate and Assembly that would put the Legislature on record as opposing Proposition 8 as an invalid revision to the State Constitution. The lobby day will bring together diverse community organizations and leaders from across the state for a day of coordinated advocacy and activism. The event is free and open to all. Each participant will receive a lobbying training, advocacy materials, and be assigned to an experienced group leader. http://equalityactionnow.c.topica.com/maamGt9abM2NXcdx84AbaehuKb/

    WHERE: Sierra 2 Center, Sacramento
    WHEN: March 5, 2008 - 6pm
    WHAT: Since 1991, Pesticide Watch Education Fund (PWEF) has worked side-by-side with communities to clean up and prevent pesticide pollution and pesticide exposure. We believe everyone has a right to breathe clean air, drink clean water, and live in a healthy and safe community.

    Two years ago, we moved our office from San Francisco to Sacramento, to play a larger role in state politics, and to fill a need in the Sacramento Valley to reduce and ultimately eliminate the use of toxic pesticides, while providing safer alternatives and increasing food security. On March 5th, we will be celebrating our efforts over the past two years, with local music, food and speakers, and fundraising money to continue into the next.
