Important Local Events and Opportunities to Learn and Lead

This is not a list of local groups and organizations that are holding regular meetings; we are working on adding a whole lot of new groups to our “get connected” page, as so many new groups have emerged since November 9, 2016. Although most of the events listed here are hosted by local groups, they are focused on issues we believe are important to those of you who are active and involved and use the information we share.

You are our activist leaders.

These are just some of the events coming up in the next few weeks that will help us understand the issues and give us incentive and instructions for TAKING ACTION. As informed leaders you can help others understand what needs to be done and why.

Some of these events are hosted by local Democratic Committees and Coalitions. That’s OK with us … Please note contact and website information for weather related cancellations and postponements, or any questions about the events or information about the groups(s) sponsoring them.

Keep checking back for new additions
