I'm just passing along the below information - this is not a Democratic GAIN-sponsored event, but it will be a great event at which to meet and network with other professionals:
In 2008, 21st Century Democrats trained 650 young activists, and sent many of them across the country to serve as field organizers for progressive and populist Democratic candidates. Thanks to their hard work and the help of our donors, 48 of the 71 candidates we endorsed -- from county commissioners to U.S. Senators -- were elected in November. Please join us
to celebrate our success and to prepare for training the next generation of progressive activists -- at the 21st Century Democrats 2009 Annual Gala. This event will be held Wednesday, June 17, from 6 to 8 PM on the rooftop of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) building, 900 7th St NW (one block from the Chinatown metro).
We will be joined by 21st Century Democrats-endorsed Senator Jeff Merkley of Oregon will be honored for his service to his constituents and the progressive community. Also, Representative John Conyers of Michigan (Chairman of the Judiciary Committee) and many other members of Congress will be in attendance!
The Annual Gala is a great opportunity to meet outstanding public officials, and network with progressive activists while enjoying heavy hors d'oeuvrs and an open bar. And you should see the view of DC from the IBEW rooftop!
(Under 21 are welcome to attend, just not to drink)
