The Progressive Democrats of America, a liberal grassroots organization, is going to be screening the new updated Bill Moyers documentary “The United States of ALEC” and discussing TPP (Trans-Pacific Partnership) actions at the next meeting of their North Orange County Chapter, on Oct. 8, with Social Time at 6:30 p.m. and the Meeting at 7:00 p.m., at Lascari’s Italian Deli, located at 1060 E. Imperial Hwy., in Brea.
John Smith of Common Cause will present the newest Moyers documentary … this new version contains additional information on ALEC (the American Legislative Exchange Council), a secretive organization that has helped corporate America propose and even draft legislation for states across the country. Apparently U.S. Rep. Ed Royce (R-Fullerton) is a member of ALEC.
RSVP HERE, and see map and directions.
Carole Levers is the Chapter Leader of PDA North Orange County, which serves the California Congressional District CA-39, and adjacent CD’s in the Brea, Fullerton, Buena Park, Hacienda Heights, Placentia, and other areas in north Orange County.
Progressive Democrats of America was founded in 2004 to transform the Democratic Party and our country. We seek to build a party and government controlled by citizens, not corporate elites-with policies that serve the broad public interest, not just private interests. As a grassroots PAC operating inside the Democratic Party, and outside in movements for peace and justice, PDA played a key role in the stunning electoral victories of November 2006 and 2008. Our inside/outside strategy is guided by the belief that a lasting majority will require a revitalized Democratic Party built on firm progressive principles.
For over two decades, the party declined as its leadership listened more to the voices of corporations than those of Americans. PDA strives to rebuild the Democratic Party from the bottom up-from every congressional district to statewide party structures to the corridors of power in Washington, where we work arm in arm with the Congressional Progressive Caucus. In just a couple of years PDA and its allies have shaken up the political status-quo on issues from ending the Iraq war, voter rights, protecting Social Security, a full employment economy, national healthcare and economic justice.
