Huge Announcement Next Meeting + Successful Pride Weekend!

Democrats for Equality,

I have a HUGE announcement for our next meeting which will be held on July 27th 2017 but first we want to thank all of our fellow Democratic clubs and elected officials who joined our contingent for this year’s Pride Parade! Hundreds of progressive Democratic activists came out to march with us for one of our largest parade contingents ever. Sometimes it takes a village, right? We could not have done it without you!

Also, special shout out and thank you to Ryan Trabuco and all those club members and volunteers who helped staff our Pride booth last weekend. They turned in a large stack of voter registrations to the county party office on Monday. People are fired up about resisting the Trump nonsense in Washington!

At our booth this year, we partnered with Log Cabin Republicans to collect donations for the onePULSE Foundation and have folks sign a remembrance banner. Below, our endorsed candidate for County Sheriff Dave Myers stopped by to sign.

There will be a very quick club meeting on Thursday, July 27th. That also happens to be my 30th birthday. We’ll do a quick club meeting at 7:00pm at Babycakes in Hillcrest. We will be in the back patio. The address is 3766 Fifth Avenue, San Diego, CA. 92103.

On our agenda:
– Huge Announcement!
– Our own State Assemblymember Todd Gloria will be joining us
– General Meeting Date Change – Third Thursday
– Bylaw Amendments to friendly incumbent endorsement and board positions (language in separate email)
– Endorsement Calendar
– Events Calendar

 

In Solidarity.

Jul 23 – Monthly Meeting – Democratic Party Mechanics for Non-mechanics

Steve Rivera is a long time member of the California Democratic Party and  former Regional Director for our area, Region 20. At this month's meeting Steve explains the structure of the Democratic Party and in particular the local and State party organization.

Steve will cover Party basics, where he thinks there will be changes and how we can make it better.

From the national level on down changes are being demanded by regular Party members. Last year the Democratic National Convention Rules Committee agreed to change the rules regarding superdelegates. Just this last week San Diego County Democratic clubs proposed changing the Bylaws of the San Diego County Democratic Party to insure that clubs are consulted on rule changes that affect clubs and their members.

These are exciting times to be a Democrat and its important to understand what that really means. We need to better understand the makeup of our Party so we can work together to improve it. Across the country from local governments, to state houses to national offices the Democratic party has been losing ground to our opponents. Reversing that trend involves questioning the makeup of the party and how it functions.

There will also be a chance to meet new candidates who are gearing up for great things in 2018. Come along, bring a friend, and meet progressives from Point Loma, Ocean Beach and beyond!
