1st annual PACG picnic

The first annual PACG Picnic was a stunning success with well over 100 people in attendance!

A big thank you to everyone who came, especially those who helped plan and facilitate the event. There were many wonderful speakers covering topics ranging from health care, to the environment, to the importance of continued economic justice and civic involvement. Congratulations to the raffle winners that got to take home signed copies of State Senator Rob Hogg’s book; “America’s Climate Century” and PACG T-shirts. Congratulations also to our silent auction winners who got to take home some delicious pies. T-shirts, window decals for your car, and bumper stickers are still available, please contact PACG by phone (563-676-7580) or sending an email to qcprogressiveaction@gmail.com if you are interested in purchasing PACG merchandise.

We are still looking to grow the three committees decided upon as part of strategic planning done to renew our organizing efforts. This picnic was born from and spearheaded by the Finance Committee. If you are interested please get involved in any way you can.

Evan Burger from Iowa Citizens for Community Improvement (Iowa CCI) presented on Iowa CCI’s hot new campaigns in the Quad Cities. Iowa CCI is a group of everyday people from all walks of life who “talk, act, and get things done” on a variety of issues – from fighting the wage theft epidemic to defending Social Security to leading the charge for laws that protect our air and water.

Iowa CCI members have been winning big victories on these issues and others for 38 years. Evan gave a brief overview of the group’s history and current campaigns, then dug in on big new initiatives that CCI members are kicking off in the Quad City area. Whether you’re a long-time CCI member or just now hearing about the organization, please get involved!
