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).

    The National Jewish Democratic Council is the trusted voice and resource for Democratic office holders, candidates and party organizations to better understand and engage with the Jewish community. NJDC mobilizes the Jewish community and convenes opinion leadership to support the Democratic promise for all Americans. We look to our Jewish tradition to guide us on the issues of social and economic justice, religious pluralism and the peace and security of the State of Israel that will be the hallmark of our work.

    Democracy for NYC in Queens:

    Democracy for New York City (DFNYC)
    is a volunteer-driven non-profit political action committee. We are
    part of a national coalition of local groups committed to the ideals
    espoused by Democracy for America, the organization founded by Howard
    Dean.

    We work both locally and nationally to ensure that
    fiscally-responsible and socially-progressive candidates win elections
    at all levels of government. We develop innovative ways to advocate for
    the issues that matter to our members and promote legislation which has
    a positive effect in our communities. We engage people in the political
    process and give them the tools to organize, communicate, mobilize, and
    enact change on the local, state, and national level.

    Currently there are three Queens chapters: Each meets the First Wednesday of every month.

    DRINKING LIBERALLY IN QUEENS:

    An informal, inclusive progressive social group. Raise your spirits

    Drinking Liberally gives like-minded, left-leaning individuals a place
    to talk politics. You don't need to be a policy expert and this isn't a
    book club - just come and learn from peers, trade jokes, vent
    frustration and hang out in an environment where it's not taboo to talk
    politics.

    Queens
    * Second and Fourth Friday of each month, 7:30 pm
    * Studio Square Beer Garden, 35-33 36th Street, Long Island City, NY ((Look for our signs or ask the helpful staff))
