Democracy for Pittsburgh November Meetup


This is the last meetup before the November election and various candidates will be speaking.

Democracy for Pittsburgh is somewhat unique among the local progressive groups because it both endorses candidates and encourages and supports its own members to run for office AND it does service projects such as collect phone cards for wounded vets (matched by Democracy for America); participates in neighborhood clean-ups; as well as lobbying elected officials for better government.

This month, we're back on the South Side (I say "we" because if it isn't obvious already, I'm a member).

Event Date: Wednesday, November 2, 2005
Event Time: 7:00 PM
Venue Name: Mario’s South Side Saloon (upstairs in the back)
Address: 1514 E Carson St
City: Pittsburgh
State: PA
