Capital Progressive Democrats (CPD) is a new club in Wake County. Yes, there's a Wake County Progressive Democrats club, but they are apparently determined to remain small and insignificant. CPD is going to grow as large as possible, and is going to raise money to help elect progressive candidates. We have bylaws, officers, a P.O. box, a bank account, and we've filed paperwork with the Board of Elections, so we are fully official as a political organization in North Carolina.
Our next meeting is May 16th at 6:30 p.m. at Goodwin House (State HQ for the NC Democratic Party), located at 220 Hillsborough St., Raleigh, NC 27603.
Our speaker this month will be Rebecca Llewellyn, the new chair of the Wake County Democratic Party.
We have regular meetings every third Tuesday of the month at Goodwin House, except July and December. We are open to the public, and we especially encourage registered Democrats who live in Wake County and identify as progressives to join us.
Resist and Persist is our motto. Come see Rebecca Llewellyn and meet our group!
