Under warm, starry skies, members and friends of 25 United for Progress (25UP) joined together in Newhall for the second of our Summer Socials series.
The Summer Socials theme is “Getting to Know You.” 25UP is producing the events to offer progressives from across the 25th District a chance to get to know one another better, in order to strengthen the alliances that will be needed to flip the 25th Blue in 2018. Each of the Summer Socials events features one of the Democratic candidates running in the Congressional primary. The funds raised at this event and other Summer Socials will benefit 25UP and will be allocated toward its plans to launch a speakers series in the Fall.
The theme for this Summer Social was "Building Friendships, not Walls." CA 25th Congressional Candidate Katie Hill joined us to tell us about her vision for the CA 25th and had the opportunity to answer some thoughtful questions from our guests in an in-depth manner.
The third of the Summer Socials events is with Candidate Bryan Caforio on Sept. 9. If you would like to find out more information about this event, please RSVP to receive an e-mail update about the event once more details are available.
This year there was widespread interest in making a statement in the community about the building momentum of progressive ideals and rebuilding our democracy -- and showing this presence in our community by marching together in the annual 4th of July Parade in Newhall. Nearly every organized progressive club in our congressional district participated for a massive show of support and patriotism.
Neighbors joined together for an intimate evening enjoying wine and cheese with congressional primary candidate Jess Phoenix. Local student artists displayed their art which which was available for purchase via silent auction. Neighbors relaxed and connected with fellow Progressives and chatted with one of our candidates.
Summer Socials is a series of 3 summer evening fundraisers for our upcoming speakers series. Our theme is “Getting to Know You,” and each event offers unique opportunities for progressives from across the 25th district to connect, strengthen alliances, and build the camaraderie needed to flip CA25 blue in 2018. Each Summer Social will feature one of the Democratic candidates running in the congressional primary, who will be available to chat with attendees.
