The Progressive Voter Alliance is a clearinghouse and point of contact for advocates of a wide range of progressive issues. We do not endorse specific candidates or causes. For an idea of the issues that have been addressed at PVA meetings, check out the Meeting Recaps. For current issues, come to the next meeting, almost always held on the fourth Thursday of the month.
PVA participants have had a large positive impact on local elections through contacting friends, family and neighbors to let them know about the importance of upcoming elections and the candidates we recommend. It’s time to formalize and upgrade our Personal Influence Networks in preparation for this fall’s municipal elections and beyond.
Go through your address book and other lists to create an electronic version of your own Personal Influence Network: people who would appreciate your letting them know about upcoming elections and the candidates you support.
If you have already created a Personal Influence Network, please do this Action by updating your list with as many people you can who belong there.
The PVA executive committee will determine the next Unified Action at their September 14, 2017, meeting. Suggestions for a Unified Action can be communicated to Cheryl Frank or any member of the Executive Committee. All Unified Actions are indexed here.
August 24 Meeting
At the August meeting, there was a lot of talk about the voting culture and democracy in Dona Ana County (at the Progressive Voter Alliance, no less! Go figure!). Plus, to name a few topics covered, we heard about the “tents-to-rents” program at Community of Hope, an Ice Cream Social, the No Wall Town Hall, updates from the El Paso Electric Rate Case, a listening clinic being started, the KTAL radio station, the transit district, concerts you can attend, a-n-d… candidates running for office put in their two minutes, too! You had to be there, but if you weren’t, all events announced at the meeting are posted in the sidebar calendar and the full recap is posted here.
Our next meeting will be Thursday, September 28, 2017, 7 p.m., at Munson Center. Map.
