Would you like to tell us a bit about yourself and your political interests/activities?

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).

What types of events are you interested in seeing for the group?

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!
