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...

GAYLE McLAUGHLIN, Richmond City Council member and former Mayor

MARGARET JORDAN, Richmond Progressive Alliance

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

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