The Blue Action Network is a group organized for:
“Mobilizing progressive activists in the Rappahannock region to educate voters and support forward thinking candidates for political office. “
They have monthly meetings in the Fredericksburg area, and this month’s meeting offers a chance to talk with and listen to progressive candidates just coming off of tough challenges against GOP incumbents in heavily tilted districts. Both of these candidates made significant inroads, so sharing their insights for working in this partisan environment is very useful.
The meeting begins at 6PM and Eileen and Scott will begin speaking at 7PM. Castiglia’s is in historic downtown Fredericksburg. Please come out!
In response to much of the non-inclusive rhetoric of the last campaign, a group has organized a large march on Washington DC for the day following the inaugural (January 21, 2017). A permit has not yet been secured, but you can find details here.
