Sweet Victories

Katrina vanden Heuvel and I have revived the "Sweet Victories" feature on the Editor's Cut blog.

Launched in the bleak aftermath of the 2004 elections, "SV" chronicles progressive wins--from legislative and electoral victories to successful organizing efforts, protests and boycotts, to the launching of a promising new idea, organization or initiative.

Here is the first of what will be a weekly feature. If you know of any victories, large or small, please send them to: nationvictories@gmail.com
