The Monthly Meetings:  Third Monday of every month.  For now, location is The Patriot House, 2 Embarcadero Center, Level P, San Francisco.  But visit the GGLR Meetup site in case things change.

The Back Story:  The GGLR lost its meeting place at the Moksha Life Center.  Everyone is happy that Moksha is prospering and expanding, but sad to leave a "home" of almost a decade -- a home so full of memories of amazing meetings going way back to 2007, when the Ron Paul Meetup Group was formed to campaign for Dr. Paul.  After both Ron Paul campaigns in 2008 and 2012, as well as two John Dennis for Congress campaigns, the Meetup adopted the name of Golden Gate Liberty Revolution, but never lost its original mission of promoting liberty.
