For those of you who are eager for more opportunities to network with progressive Virginians, two new progressive groups in Virginia have become active lately.
The Progressive Women of Hampton Roads is an exciting new group meeting regularly in the Tidewater area. Dedicated Dean supporter and DFA activist Linda Brooks of Hampton Roads writes:
This is our second meeting and I hope any women who are out there that want to attend and are progressive and want to put an end to the onslaught of the erosion of women's rights will attend. If you need more info, please email me at lgb293 (at) aol (dot) com.
Details on next meeting of Progressive Women of Hampton Roads:
Thursday, January 20th

And in Fauquier County, a group of progressives have founded the Sunday Supper Club. The club founders worked together in summer of 2004 to register voters and pass out Kerry/Edwards campaign literature. They began meeting for pot-luck dinners on Sunday nights in November and December to continue working together to bring about progressive change. They now meet the second Sunday of every month for pot-luck dinners, conversation, and action. For more information, visit the Sunday Supper Club Web site.
