PVA Meeting Recap – January 20, 2005

On Thursday, January 20 we met again at the Mesilla Community Center, as part of our effort to build off the energy of the 2004 Kerry campaign and to establish an ongoing progressive political force in Southern New Mexico.

Several groups were formed around particular projects and areas of interest. Those groups, their chairs, and the chairs’ emails and phone numbers are listed below. If you would like to find out more about any group’s work, or if you want to be included in its next meeting, please contact the chair.
