Dear Bronx Progressives family,
Spring is upon us and it’s time to renew the grassroots!!

Join us on Monday, April 29th at 6:30pm for our general membership meeting, where we will be taking nominations for Bronx Progressives leadership positions and learning from Bronx criminal justice reform leaders in our community.

If you are a current Bronx Progressives member and you are interested in nominating yourself or a fellow Bronx Progressives member for a leadership position, please complete this form no later than Monday, April 29th at 6:30pm (if you cannot attend the meeting in person) – The form is to get a general sense of the positions you would like to serve on, but as per the Bylaws, the two Co-Coordinators are the only positions directly elected by the membership. 

We will provide a Membership and Treasurer Report at the meeting. Also, per your request at our last general membership meeting, attached are copies of Bronx Progressives’ bylaws for your review. In addition, we included a description for each of the Bronx Progressives leadership positions so before you apply, please read the bylaws and key position descriptions.

For the first part of the meeting, we will be joined by leading Bronx criminal justice reform advocates known as Discovery 4 Justice so that they can teach us about their successful grassroots legislative efforts this season in Albany and what it takes to craft legislation from a grassroots, Bronx perspective.

Meeting location: 
St. Simon Stock (Gym)
2195 Valentine Avenue
Bronx NY 10457
(on 182nd Street between Valentine and Ryer Avenues)
Doors open at 6:30pm sharp!
Take the D train to the 182nd and 183rd Street train stop. You can also take the Bx1 or Bx2 bus as well.
