January Monthly Meeting - 1/25/2018

Ring in the new (election) year and join us for our first meeting of 2018!

Please note that we will be trying out a new location for this meeting.  In response to members' suggestions about finding a location for our meetings that is more conducive to discussion (i.e. you can hear what everyone is saying), we're holding the January meeting at Hartford Coffee -- specifically the study cottage behind Hartford Coffee, which is reserved for our meeting.

We will hear legislative updates, hope to have a speaker to discuss homelessness in St. Louis and how we can take action, and will have a special election for President of the 15th Ward Democrats (since our fearless leader will, unfortunately, be moving out of the ward).

Bring a friend, bring a neighbor, bring a family member. Come early, buy supper, stay to discuss.

When: 7pm, Thursday, January 25
Where: Hartford Coffee (Study Cottage behind main building) @ 3974 Hartford

April Monthly Meeting - Thursday, April 27

In the age of Trump, we must show up for marches and we do. Marching is fine as far as it goes, but it is the start of action, not the end. We know politics and public policy happen every day. Please join us at our April meeting this Thursday, 4/27, at 7 PM at Friendly's (3503 Roger) to learn about voter registration drives, Pride events, our annual picnic, petition opportunities (and warnings) to stand up for workers, and new directions in the city.

Lots to do, lots of heads and hands and hearts are needed.
