Hello Capital Area Progressive Democrats!
Please join us for our next club meeting on Tuesday, March 7 at 5:30pm. We will meet at the AFL-CIO building located at 1106 Lavaca Street. We’re fired up and you don’t want to miss this meeting! Here are highlights for the next meeting:
- Guest speakers from Caritas of Austin. Forced to flee their home country due to war and persecution, international refugees are at a crossroads in life. Each year, Caritas of Austin serves more than 500 refugees from various countries as they transition to life in the US and work to achieve self-sufficiency. We are fortunate to have Landlord Outreach Specialist Rick Schneider and Program Manager Mamadou Balde to speak with us about their work and what CAPD can do to help.

- Resolution supporting Nick Chu for JP 5 appointment. As many of you know, the Honorable Herb Evans, Travis County Justice of the Peace, Precinct Five, is retiring effective May 1, 2017. The Travis County Commissioners Court will appoint someone to serve in that role until January 1, 2019. We will discuss and vote on a resolution supporting the appointment of 2016 CAPD Kick Ass Award Winner Nick Chu for JP 5. Click on this link to find more info about Nick.
- Upcoming Fundraising Projects. We plan to discuss some upcoming fundraising projects, including our annual Kick Ass Awards. We raise funds every year to continue our fight for progressive, Democratic values in Austin/Travis County. Please come out with any additional ideas to raise funds in the fight against Republican extremism.
