When and how was Progressive Neighbors founded?

A:

Progressive Neighbors was founded in early 2006 in a Takoma Park living room.  The group wanted to impact the upcoming elections and decided to work together to support the candidates on whom they agreed. Progressive Neighbors helped elect Jamie Raskin in his first race, and went on to endorse and campaign for progressive candidates and ballot issues over a decade.   It has grown to include voters in Silver Spring, Chevy Chase, Bethesda, Olney, Kensington, and Rockville
