What we're about

Public Group

PALLS is a group of progressively minded people working to improve our country through political action, education, or just good friendships. You decide what level of interest and commitment you will bring to the group. You can just socialize with people who share your values, or get more involved. Whether it be writing letters, calling Members of Congress, marching to the capitol, joining town halls (even empty chair events!) or just sharing a festive dinner with like minded friends, we create opportunities for progressives to meet, socialize and participate. PALLS organizes educational events and posts actions from other groups of interest to our members. We meet for coffee periodically and host Sunday brunches the third Sunday of each month.

If you want to organize an event or cross list progressive activities, we will help you. We welcome and encourage new members to bring their ideas for events and activities to our group. Democracy takes work and it is involves all of us working together. Host a coffee chat. Organize an discussion group. Invite activists to tell us about their work. Plan a happy hour or an informal lunch or dinner. If you lean even a little bit toward the left, you will find friends here.
