Join Network For Progress, a social and media-savvy grassroots organization for the Mainstream Majority of “Sanity”-loving Americans inspired by the “Yes We Can” Movement of Hope and Change for a New Kind of Politics & Citizenship to overtake the extremist influence of the “Tea Party” Movement, for yet another Progress Party celebration as we continue our monthly mixer series where DC-area Progressives, Democrats and “Hope Mongers” can congregate to network and socialize to build our community for 2012 & beyond.

Former Virginia Congressman Tom Perriello (@tomperriello) will discuss how we can “Occupy Capitol Hill” to have our voice heard on the American Jobs Act and on Election Day 2012….as well as on November 8th in Virginia! As many of you know, Tom was famously a progressive champion despite serving in a very conservative district and as a result outperformed expectations in his re-election bid in 2010.

Formerly of MSNBC’s “Hardball”, Current TV’s “Countdown with Keith Olbermann” anchor/correspondent David Shuster (@davidshuster) will discuss how we can “Occupy Media” as well as the progress of Occupy DC and the worldwide movement born on Wall Street on September 17 that has far surpassed the Tea Party in terms of national attention and possibly political action in the near future.

  1. May I simply say what a comfort to uncover a person that genuinely knows what
    they are discussing on the internet. You definitely realize how to bring a problem to light and make it important.

    More people have to check this out and understand this side of the story.
    I was surprised you are not more popular since you most certainly possess the gift.

  2. It’s actually very complicated in this active life to listen news on TV, so I simply use internet for that purpose, and get the newest news.

  3. First of all I want to say excellent blog! I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your head prior to writing. I have had a tough time clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out. I truly do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or tips? Kudos!
