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.

    What to Expect: One source of Proctor Creek originates within the Vine City/English Avenue Community. Nonpoint source pollution abounds in this area which has suffered from blight and environmental injustice for far too long. Proctor Creek is also one of the most environmentally impaired creeks in the metro Atlanta. We will be picking up trash out of the creek, and also in surrounding abandoned homes and empty lots areas.

    What to Wear: Wear clothes that you don't mind getting very dirty. Wear old sneakers or boots (NO sandals) and bring work gloves if you’ve got them. We encourage you to wear long pants as some of the trash we pick up is broken glass and sharp/jagged materials. You might want to bring clean clothes and shoes to change into for your journey home.

    Child/Youth Participation: We welcome children, but they must be supervised at all times by their parent/guardian. Minimum 10 years of age.
