Creating Big Change Moments
A conversation with Gara LaMarch, Eli Pariser, Mike Lux
Moderated by Laura Flanders
Tues, Feb 10th
6:30 Doors; 7pm Discussion; 8:30 Reception
Hosted by Living Liberally
and the Progressive Book Club
The Tank - 354 West 45th St
Tix: $10 advance' $15 at door;
$25 included a copy of "The Progressive Revolution"

What will be America's next progressive revolution? After all, since our country's founding, it has been progressive momentum that created a social safety net and ended slavery, that enfranchised voters and protected the environment. Coming out of years of conservative governance, and facing overwhelming economic, international and environmental problems, can we even hope for a next "big change moment" in America?


The Young Democrats are coming to NYC.
Join the conference: Feb 20-22
