The electric vehicle (EV) revolution will not be denied as technological advances are making EVs affordable, practical, and fun. EV enthusiast and Westside Progressives regular Phillip Adam will discuss the present and future of EVs: How their economies, technology, and environmental impact will change the automobile industry as we know it.

As an added bonus, Phillip will bring friends (and vehicles) from the local chapter of the Electric Vehicle Owners Club for a panel discussion so attendees can ask any questions about EVs.  And as an even more special bonus, they will be bringing their cool cars to check out!

Westside Progressives, a non-partisan educational forum that encourages civil and thoughtful discussion about progressive issues, normally meets on the third Tuesday of each month at the Church of the Epiphany, located at Schmidt Lake Road and Nathan Lane in Plymouth. $10 lasagna/salad dinner. 6 p.m. doors open, 6:15 dinner, 6:45-8:00 p.m. program.

Westside Progressives host Kelly Guncheon is using a new method for registration to be sure he doesn't miss any RSVP's.  RSVP at  If you don't want to order dinner, please check presentation only on the registration form.
