Local activist group Herndon-Reston Indivisible has planned an “issues fair” as part of its public meeting Tuesday.

According to information provided by the group:

Herndon-Reston Indivisible is hosting an Issues Fair to give current and prospective volunteers the opportunity to explore the more than 10 groups that exist within Herndon-Reston Indivisible that are focused on following and taking action on specific issues (for example, healthcare, science & the environment). Attendees can find out what these groups have been doing, what they are planning for the future, and how to can get involved.

According to the organization’s summer newsletter, HRI’s issues groups include the Russian Influence group, the Informed Public group, the Immigration Issues group, the Election Issues group, the Economy Issues group, and the Science and Environment group.

The meeting and fair will take place at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday at Sunset Hills Montessori School (11180 Ridge Heights Road). Snacks and soft drinks will be provided.

Herndon-Reston Indivisible describes itself as “a local organization of like-minded citizens who are resisting the Trump administration and his hateful policies.” The group has had several hundred people attend past meetings.

  • John Smith

    bunch of losers with a to much time on their hands

    • IllegallyLivingInReston

      too*

      • RestonAssurance

        Thank you.

  • Yup

    Why is this on Reston Now, this isn’t new or anything?

    Resisting the Trump Organization? Resisting our president, and U.S. democracy you mean? You have a right to gather on this matter, thanks to democracy.

  • Mike M

    “. . . a local organization of like-minded citizens who are resisting the Trump administration and his hateful policies.”

    Gag! You clowns “resist” nothing but reality. Trump is President. Get over yourselves.

    • Willie Reston

      Triggered?

      • IllegallyLivingInReston

        I, for one, cannot believe people have different political views than Mike M. This is America, land of the You’re Not Allowed to Dislike the President.

        • Mike M

          Disliking and disagreeing are two different things. One is more common in kindergarten. Disliking someone for their views and declaring them hateful as a result is simply childish. Declaring “resistance” and merely venting your common dislike is also akin to tantrum. If they want to emphasize their difference with the fellow citizens who voted for this guy and would do it again, they should not use the word indivisible. HHNHH?

          • IllegallyLivingInReston

            For a man who rails against liberals for being snowflakes you sure tend to get very upset at certain words. Perhaps you should email them and let them know their name is offensive.

          • Thomas Day

            Mike is well known for his whining. He’s pretty insecure and seeks validation from everyone.

        • Scott

          To be fair, that is what we were told from 2008-16. Anyone who disliked Obama’s policies was branded a racist, so it seems fair if we are being consistent.

  • Tom Mccauley

    Ken Plum and Senator Kaine must of paid for the column-inches for this ad, I mean news.

    • Willie Reston

      *must have

      • Why do you bother?

        Thank you.

  • TheKingJAK

    Lol, player please.

  • Greendayer

    Just another hater’s meeting

  • Bleufishcat

    ACAT should join, Anticommunism Action Team. http://www.spider-and-the-fly.com

  • The Constitutionalist

    Their “resistance” will just equate to another 4 years of orange come 2020. It really is a losing strategy. And hilarious.

    • RestonAssurance

      Another 4 years of Orangina in 2020 wouldn’t be good for anyone and our country. Et tu Brute.

      • The Constitutionalist

        I dunno, the market seems pretty happy about it.

  • Anonym

    Let them meet, that’s part of the point of our democracy.

    Just don’t try to subvert our democracy.

  • Guest

    Indivisible is merely a loose coalition of the usual liberal-left interest groups with plans keep their hands on everyone else’s’ wallets. They favor anti-capitalist and anti-worker regulation, confiscatory rates of taxation, amnesty for undocumented and illegal immigrants, anti-school choice policies and restrictions against second amendment rights, among others. They are the remnants left behind by Hillary’s election loss. They have no vision for the future of America and represent the liberal status quo which has failed us all.

  • Scott

    This group is racist. As we learned during the Obama administration, any disagreement with the President is due to racism. Why would Reston Now promote this racist group?
