Houston Progressive and Democratic Activism Events for July
Richardo's post about the Chris Bell appearance reminds me that I haven't done one of these in awhile. Here's some more don't-misses for next month:

On Satuday, July 9 a Peak Oil Mini-Conference will be held from 1-5 p.m @ First Unitarian Universalist Church, 5200 Fannin. Discuss the adjustments our oil-dependent economy will have to make. A showing of "The End of Suburbia" plus workshops and open space conferencing. Suggested donation $5; contact Don Cook at (713)705-5594 or Alfred Molison at (713) 726-9009.

The Campaign for a National Majority will have an organizing event in Bellaire at the home of Kathy Dreyfus and Jim Grotta, 4555 Elm Street, on Tuesday July 19. (There are similar events scheduled in Austin on July 17 and San Antonio on July 18.) CNM is a grassroots effort focusing on achieving winning races for Democrats, starting with state elections. Their goal is to build a "farm team" of Democrats who can win statewide and national elections. Click on their site above to learn more and RSVP.

"Art for Life's Sake: An Evening of Music, Poetry, Dance, and Fine Art" will be held Saturday, July 16 at the historic El Dorado Ballroom, 2310 Elgin at Dowling. Doors open for viewing at 2 p.m., event performances begin at 6 p.m., auction closes at 9:30 p.m. This event benefits the Mayor's State of Emergency Task Force against HIV and AIDS. Over 100 artworks from emerging and established artists nationwide will be showcased. Performances include members of the Houston Poetry Slam Team, poetess Marie Brown, members of the Blackout Arts Collective, Jazz Band Signature, dance performances & more. Refreshments provided courtesy of Niko Niko's and This Is It.

The State of Emergency Task Force, established in 1999 under the Lee Brown Administration and continued by Houston Mayor Bill White, has served the Houston community by going into the "trenches", providing HIV/AIDS testing and education where others might not venture. This includes everywhere from nightclubs to churches, street corners to apartment complexes. For more info or to RSVP email aminor@oosix.com

And on Saturday July 23rd, Helping Democrats Get Elected will have an organizational meeting from 3:00-5:00 p.m. at Pappas Burger Restaurant (in the party room), 5815 Westheimer Rd, 77057 (between Fountain View & Chimney Rock). Talk about upcoming city elections and the candidates, and get more information about the statewide 2006 elections and campaigns. We will organize and set up some committees. Join us for some tasty food and an important meet-up.

3. The CNM event now has a featured speaker:
former Congressman (and declared DeLay opponent) Nick Lampson.

:woohoo: :applause: :woohoo: :applause:

Light refreshments will be served, and while the organization appreciates donations, this event is not a fundraiser. RSVP by Thursday, July 14 to Elizabeth Cohen at 713-664-5055 or Courtney Weiner at weiner@nationalmajority.org .
