ABOUT

Progressives in Richmond, CA have had a string of inspiring victories lately, including in the most recent election of the Richmond City Council. Making national news, voters in Richmond rejected Chevron corporation backed candidates and instead elected a progressive city council, supported by the Richmond Progressive Alliance.

 

We are looking forward to hearing from representatives of the progressive movement in Richmond and  long-time progressive activist and writer, Norman Solomon, and we invite you to join us...

 

Guest Speakers:

GAYLE McLAUGHLIN, Richmond City Council member and former Mayor

MARGARET JORDAN, Richmond Progressive Alliance

NORMAN SOLOMON, Executive Director Institute for Policy Accuracy, co-founder RootsAction.org, Board Member ExposeFacts.org and Co-Chair Coalition for Grassroots Progress

Emcee: JULIE COMBS, Santa Rosa City Council member

 

We'll also hear updates on what CGP activists are doing locally to get more progressives elected to public office.

 

*Lemonade & iced tea available on the house  *A menu of light snacks & refreshments available for purchase.
