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.

    Here're some upcoming event of interest:

    February 11, 2010: 2010 Stonewall Broken Hearts and Valentine Party

    Location: Phillip Rush Center 1530 DeKalb Ave, Atlanta, GA, 30307 US

    Stonewall Democrats is proud to host the 2010 Stonewall Broken Hearts & Valentine Party.

    Join us on February 11th, as we fill out Valentine Hearts to give to our favorite fair-minded elected officials. For just a small $5 donation to Atlanta Stonewall, you can send a beautiful Valentine Heart, signed by you, to your favorite Democrat or Elected Official.

    For the flip-side, for $5 donations you can also send a Broken Heart to a public official who is NOT so fair-minded.

    We'll have light refreshments on hand, so come and join your friends from Stonewall at the Rush Center, have some fun sending a few cool gifts, and have a good time!

    If you send at least 5 items ($25 worth of hearts) your 2010 membership to Stonewall is included!
