Bonnie Raitt has chosen Chesapeake Physicians for Social Responsibility as one of two organizations to be recognized from the stage. The CPSR steering committee members will be available at an information table in the lobby. If you are a fan and would like to attend, be sure to purchase your tickets soon before they sell out. Please stop by and say hello!

28] –Join a virtual conversation with Annie Jacobsen on Wed., May 29 at 8 PM ET.  She is the author of the acclaimed novel "Nuclear War." This book, grounded in extensive research, draws the reader into the scenario of the “handful of minutes after a nuclear missile launch.” Like the famous TV movie “The Day After” this could be very impactful on the American public especially as we have been told there may be a movie version in the near future. CPSR is a cosponsor of the event and invites you to participate in this conversation with the author.  RSVP at

29] – On Wed., May 29 from 8 to 8:30 PM ET, join Swing Left for a volunteer orientation. This orientation will continue on June 12 at 8 PM ET. Take on MAGA extremism—and win—in 2024, and beyond! During the 30-minute orientation, share the most effective volunteer options. Extremism has taken root and is now thriving in the Republican Party. This emboldened GOP is attacking democracy itself—designing extreme legislative gerrymanders, rigging the courts, attempting to subvert election results, and stripping away the democratic voice of the people—in order to lock in permanent minority rule.   Swing Left has the tools, programs, and community infrastructure to help you get involved strategically in whatever way you can, no matter where you are on your civic engagement journey.
