I'm in Oakland, long-time Bay Arean. Started in NYC, where active in ghetto civil rights group. In college, very active in political groups & intended to run for office (don't laugh<g>). Sidetracked by former career (now looking to break into the non-profit field, to be able to survive economically while continuing my work to achieve social justice or otherwise better life for the people & other beings on the planet ...& the planet itself). Now administering & co-facilitating group for misunderstood gender minority, while volunteering at the Oakland animal shelter, to help some of our fellow creatures achieve a positive life, while growing some of my own vegetables (oh yeah, & looking for paying work<g> - ha!, guess i should spend more of my time doing that, as it's hardly easy to get non-profit work these days).
relatively informal ones which are either fun or interesting (or just an opportunity to hang & chat with other members) - nothing specific looking for...
OK, i am progressive & certainly single, so i'm intrigued to see what this group is like. Given the circles i'm in, i rarely have to deal with intolerant, right-wing, or otherwise non-progressive people, but want to know more singles, so here i am!
