Thanks for passing this along - this seems very odd, though, I'm sure GE wouldn't be stupid

Progressive Singles of the SF Bay Area is a group for singles who are also progressive to find kindred spirits. “Progressive” spans the entire spectrum of philosophy on the left for folks who care about the world, value diversity, and want to make a difference. If you are interested in politics, issues of peace and social justice, sustainable living and energy, the environment, animal advocacy, and other international, regional, and local issues, this group can be a home for you. We are about living our beliefs while having fun and spending time with interesting people.
Our activities range from purely political to purely social and every combination in between. Each month, the group holds Progressive Talk meetings to discuss the latest political issues and news stories. There are also meetups to explore and learn about progressive issues (through activities like lectures and film screenings), to do some political activism (with specific issues or elections), and to enjoy life (with things such as concerts, hikes, and many more).
All members are welcome to suggest events for this group, which can become official meetups once at least three people RSVP for the event. We only ask that the event has a specific date, time, and location; identifies a host for the event (yourself or another member of this group); and not involve any business or commercial activity benefiting the event host.
Whether you're at the center, moderately left of center, or even far left on the political spectrum, Progressive Singles of the SF Bay Area is a group that provides a mix of intellectual stimulation and exciting fun for the liberal and progressive mind.
