Wednesday November 15 from 5:30-7 pm at Johnnie’s (33 E. 33rd) in Edmond we will celebrate 7+ years that the Brennan Society has been in existence! Our premier progressive organization was given life by 5 Co-Founders—LaDonna Hunt, Ismat Esrar, Tom Guild, Iris Lochner, & Gene Hunt in August 2010! We have achieved amazing results for the progressive movement in Oklahoma in our 7+ years of existence!
We have elected county & congressional district party officers, elected 20 of our number as members of delegations to national political nominating conventions, seen one of our own serve as a presidential elector, supported numerous candidates for public office, opened the Oklahoma Democratic Party to participation by independents in primary elections, and given life to progressivism in Edmond and Central Oklahoma with members hailing from dozens of counties around the state!
LaDonna, Ismat, Tom & Gene will share remembrances from our first 7 year! We will have delicious anniversary cake and door prizes! Join us for this special 7 Years & Counting Anniversary Celebration!
