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).

    Young Democrats of Atlanta:

    "In such a challenging world, such a fantastic and dangerous world, we will not find answers in old dogmas, by repeating outworn slogans, or fighting on ancient battlegrounds, against fading enemies, long after the real struggle has moved on. We ourselves much change, in order to master change. We must rethink our old ideas and beliefs, before they capture, and before they destroy us. For those answers, America must look to its young people, the children of this time of change." -Robert F. Kennedy, 1966

    The Service Committee is another part of the action-oriented outreach of Young Democrats of Atlanta. Contact our Service Committee Chair, Falatta Burdette, on how you can join our efforts.
