Greetings Bronx Progressives Members!
How are you all? Hope this email finds you all well, and that your loved ones are healthy and safe during the pandemic. As I write this, I am reminded that several long months have passed by since we’ve last held a meeting. So much has happened since not only in our own personal lives, but as a society. This health crisis has changed us forever!
With that said, Bronx Progressives has been on hiatus since the pandemic broke out, and because of other internal challenges we’ve been facing as a group. At this moment we find ourselves in a very difficult and painful situation of deciding what is the future of Bronx Progressives. Do we disband it or create a plan of action to reactivate the group? 
Join us, Wednesday, September 30th at 6pm, to take part in this crucial discussion about the future of Bronx Progressives. Your feedback and participation are crucial!
We will also have a special guest joining us. Sochie Nnaemeka, Working Families Party NYS Director, will be joining us to chat about the upcoming elections, and the Working Families Party.
We will also discuss the upcoming election on November 3, and how to plan your vote.
When: Wednesday, September 30th at 6pm
