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.

    Highlands Ranch & Lone Tree Democrats
    The Highlands Ranch/Lone Tree Democrats provide a forum for residents of Highlands Ranch and Lone Tree to get together to socialize with like minded people, participate in projects, and become involved in legislation and candidates that further the needs of their communities.

    Activities include:

    The Progressive Book Club provides a place to socialize and discuss books about current topics of interest.

    Meetings are held the second Wednesday of most months (July & August were skipped in 2009).

    Time: 7:00 PM

    Tattered Cover Book Store
    Town Center in Highlands Ranch
    9315 Dorchester St.
    Highlands Ranch

    Liberal Ladies purpose is to network the women of Douglas County (Democrats and all other like-minded women) who can't always make it to the evening meetings because of family commitments. While there are more than 10,000 registered Democrats in Highlands Ranch and Lone Tree, alone too many Democratic women, especially moms, feel isolated. "I thought I was the only Democrat around here" is a common comment. We are women who want to effect change for ourselves, our children and our country by promoting progressive values. We want to be a great group to meet and network with like minded women while encouraging involvement in community life and politics.

    Children are always welcome.
