NEWS & EVENTS                                   

Women's Rally

About 150 people rallied on the corner of King and 6th Ave. in Hendersonville to promote the rights of women.   The war on women’s rights has escalated in the last couple of months, as lawmakers try to turn back the clock in a very regressive manner.

It was heartwarming to have a huge majority of good honking and waves supporting the Progressive Alliance of Henderson County organized rally.

Postcard Party

10 people cruised into 305 Main Eatery in Hendersonville for an in-person/take out Postcard Party on Friday September 17th. The party resulted in 28 postcards sent to law makers!
Lots of lively conversations among friends and new members.   We welcome all candidates at this opportunity to answer our questions and express their views.

Food and drink were good and we all know we need to support our local businesses.   Many of the group then strolled a block south and attended the monthly Silent Vigil for Immigration Reform in front of the historic courthouse.
