Dear Liberals -
Every year, Living Liberally hosts an annual celebration -- to gather friends and enthusiasts for a festive night of food, drink, and revelry. We raise funds to fuel our national, all-volunteer network. And we honor allies and inspirations from across the progressive cosmos.
Do you have your tickets to join us on Thursday May 19?
This year, we are so excited to be honoring true liberal champions:
- THE AMERICAN FEDERATION OF TEACHERS (AFT), celebrating its 100th year as champions of our families, our teachers, and the broader progressive movement—and its president RANDI WEINGARTEN
- LOCAL PROGRESS, a network of progressive municipal elected officials, tackling local fights of national importance for economic opportunity and equal justice -- and its founding board member and long time Living Liberally friend, New York City Council Member BRAD LANDER.
Both of these organizations are fighting for a progressive vision and engaging and energizing the Living Liberally community across the country—and both of these individual are leaders, organizers, thinkers, and rabble-rousers whose work has again and again inspired us to action.
Will you join us May 19th to honor the AFT and Randi Weingarten; and Local Progress and Brad Lander?
Get tix now:
There are hundreds of Living Liberally chapters that help create homes for liberals in the country's most conservative corners and serve as hubs of progressive activism. The national organization supports them all -- and 50% of that budget is raised at this event.
This is a chance for New Yorkers who have known and loved Drinking Liberally, Laughing Liberally, Screening Liberally and Eating Liberally over the past 13 years to give a little bit and power the national constellation of progressive social clubs.
And you get open bar, sustainable food, lively company, and incredible honorees along the way.
Please join us on May 19th! - http://livingliberally.org/celebration2016

April turned ugly on the Democratic side
It remained even uglier on the Republican side
And the glowering and grimacing of the DC GOP
You've heard April showers bring May flowers.
Raise an early toast to May Day - or shout mayday! -
And save the date: Thurs, May 19th

Despite massive rallies feeling the Bern,
Triumphant Trump lumped his rivals,
Andrew Jackson faces a defeat of his own
If you were betting on an upset in New York
But at least Tubman bested Jackson
Buoy your spirits and buy another round

Often uncontested in presidential elections,
A Vermonter with Brooklyn roots,
A Democratic debate drives further drama,
In the end, they're all hoping to croon,
For a few days at least, New York
Join the debate and enjoy some drinks
Or watch the debate in BROOKLYN
And stay tuned to watch the primary returns
