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.
The Unified Action for October is to talk with five friends about the candidates you believe are most qualified. Then be sure your friends vote. The Unified Action details are here and they include voting places and times and a list of all the candidates who have attended PVA meetings (or sent a representative) to ask for support.
The PVA executive committee will determine the next Unified Action at their January 12, 2017, meeting. Suggestions for a Unified Action can be communicated to Cheryl Frank or any member of the Executive Committee. All past Unified Actions are indexed here.
Special November Post-Election Meeting
The post-election meeting was jam-packed. Everyone who wished to speak had the customary two minutes; nothing else was on the agenda. We heard from 38 speakers. We honored the veterans among us; we celebrated with winning candidates; we thanked the losing candidates for their courage and grace; we expressed grave concerns along with firm resolve to be the thoughtful and committed citizens that our democracy requires. Four events were announced and are listed in the sidebar calendar.
The next regular PVA meeting will be Thursday, January 26, 2017, 7 p.m., at Munson Center. Map.
