WELCOME

We are Progressives in Henderson County who are advocating for issues we believe in. We are a merger of four groups - Progressive Women of Hendersonville, Progressive Organized Women, Hendersonville Huddle, and the Silent Vigil for Immigration Reform. Our values include education, communication and fairness.

GET OUT THE VOTE
PRIMARY ELECTIONS      SPRING 2020

 

It is that time of the year again where we ramp up to encourage registered voters to GET OUT and VOTE.   We are approaching PRIMARY elections in Spring, 2020. 

We are aiming to address, write a couple of sentences, and stamp close to 1000 postcards.  If you can offer to help with this effort by either writing some of the cards or providing a roll of postcard stamps (a roll of 100 stamps is $35), all involvement is appreciated.   We are glad to address postcards and bring to upcoming Friday Postcard Parties at Sanctuary Brewing.  We have some suggested sentences. These postcards can be taken home and then returned the next Friday to the Postcard Party, so we can stamp them.   We also can provide pre-stamped postcards if you can address and script. We intend to mail them before the early voting begins.  
Or contact Sissy Owen  who is glad to coordinate a pickup point around town to meet your schedule.
 

ONGOING EVENTS
Postcard Parties

Please join us every Friday for Postcard Parties anytime between 4:30 to 6:00 at Sanctuary Brewing Company, 147 1st Ave. E, Hendersonville, NC.. 

 

Postcards, stamps and suggestion sheets with addresses are provided.
