201 Massachusetts Ave, NE

Washington, DC 20002


Join Network For Progress, a social and media-savvy movement-building community for connecting professional and grassroots Progressives, Democrats, Hope Mongers and Change Makers with further political and civic participation, at our kickoff event for our Progress Week 2014!

Bill Maher will be airing a special Real Time show in DC at 9pm 9/12 to announce his #FlipADistrict winner from his Flippable Four targets out of the original Tweet Sixteen bracket. as one lucky district will get Bill’s help to “Lose Their Loser Congressman.”

At our pre-party, the DCCC’s Greg Jackson will join us to talk about the #1More campaign to get 1 million more voters than in 2010 and districts we need to protect in 2014 and also can flip like the targeted Northern Virginia’s 10th District (Fairfax/Dulles) where Fairfax Supervisor John Foust to win an open congressional seat against right-wing Whitewater investigator and Bush, RNC and Romney strategist Barbara Comstock.

Afterwards, attendees will be invited to join us for a Watch Party at the spacious home of one of our members in Columbia Heights….unless someone offers to host closer to Capitol Hill! Some carpooling will be available to help folks get there quickly and cheaply.

Why elsewhere? HBO charges bars tons of money to access their programming for sports etc. so we can’t host a watch party at 201 Bar. If anyone lives anywhere close and has a big living room we would be happy to pay your HBO bill for September etc. if you were willing to host a limited group of progressive-minded friends gather for the show.
