Based on recent weather forecasts, we recommend taking an umbrella with you on outings this final week of September.

Another long but non-lucrative week behind the Uber wheel.

Between shooting for Nashville and newly driving for Uber (gotta buy groceries!), had almost no time last week; apologies. Hoping this week will be less stressful and more forgiving. We’ll see.

For 12 straight years, West End United Methodist Church has helped to sponsor and build a Habitat for Humanity home, and that time of year is here again.

The church also recruits volunteers to help with building. Which means YOUR help is needed.

We are into a new week, which means new opportunities for Progressive Nashvillians to organize, work, learn, and build community in such a way that helps make Music City and the world a better place. Let’s take a look at the happenings for Tuesday and Wednesday.

Monday is a quiet day on the prog front, but there are things to do Tuesday and Wednesday. The next couple of days also presents an opportunity — if you haven’t already voted in the mayoral polling — to do your homework on the candidates and issues that will be on the ballot for the Aug. 6 2015 Metro Nashville and Davidson County Election. On to the events…

It’s a fairly quiet week for activist libs in Music City, but what’s happening is choice. Get out and about and work toward getting informed, supporting progressive candidates, and making a difference. And don’t forget: Early Voting in the Metro Nashville and Davidson County election is still underway.

Wednesday will be another hot one in Music City. Take your mind off the swelter and focus on one or more of the happenings taking place in Nashville.
