On Saturday, April 30th, we will be moving our PACG office from the Davenport Unitarian church to Cobblestone Place. We need you! And, if you have a dolly, a truck, and/or an available backseat to transport some boxes to our new location we would very much appreciate your assistance. We also need help with organizing the new office.
Please call PACG at 563-676-7580 or email firstname.lastname@example.org Thank you!

ONGOING PACG ACTIVITIES:
PACG Community Networking Night
Members of PACG meet every 4th Thursday of the month. Starting at 6:00 pm in the Community Room at Cobblestone Place, 1212 W. 3rd St, Davenport IA 52804. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to bring food and their progressive ideas to share!
We stand for peace every Saturday from 11 am to noon on the corner of John Deere Rd and 16th Street, Moline. But from November through March we gather at 11am in the food court at South Park Mall and walk around with our bright green "End the War" shirts. (You don't need a shirt to join us.) Hope to see you there. It's fun!
Congressman Braley invites all Iowans to create own balanced budget, and reduce the deficit during the week of April 25th. The town halls will be fully interactive and attendants will be able to decide how to balance the budget and reduce the deficit.
“It’s long past due time for a serious, responsible conversation about our fiscal future – and that’s why I want to bring the budget discussion directly to my constituents,” said Rep. Braley. “These town halls will give Iowans an opportunity to see first-hand how the budget process works in Congress. Together, we can find the best ways to balance the budget and reduce our deficit. I look forward to hearing from my constituents and discussing these important issues with them.”
Attendants can RSVP on Rep. Braley’s website at: http://go.usa.gov/TQa
