Have you been inspired and energized by Martin Luther King day events and the inauguration of Barack Obama? Here's your chance to get involved!
The FIFTH ANNUAL Coulee Progressives State of the Union will be held on Friday, January 30 at the Concordia Ballroom, 1129 La Crosse Street. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. to the annual Community Fair - lots of local, regional and national organizations and groups letting you know what's going on and giving you the opportunity to sign up to volunteer. Of course, free food and a cash bar and wonderful music and lots of idea sharing will add to the enjoyment.
At 7:30, Ben Manski of the Liberty Tree Foundation for the Democratic Revolution will speak.
[UPDATE:] We will also get a preview of the new video Transportation Liberation and have a great look back at actions and events of 2008!
Entrance is by sliding scale donation (we use entrance fees to help pay for the hall) and you are welcome to bring a dessert to share and/or a non-perishable donation for local food pantries.
Groups, organizations, candidates who want table space during the Community Fair should email CouleeProgressive@hotmail.com.
Updated: Confirmed tablers (so far - will update over the weekend. If you should be on this list, please email me!)
