The San Diego Climate Mobilization Campaign

nancyanddereckScripps Institute of Oceanography, San Diego, has stated that human extinction is possible by 2050.  What can be done to save us?  Come hear Derek and Nancy Casady, organizers for The San Diego Climate Mobilization Coalition,  talk about the solution to climate change and global warming.

We need action more than ever because the current federal government’s policies of dismantling climate regulations that were put forth by previous administrations contradict what science tells us.

Nancy is the former general manager of Ocean Beach People’s Organic Food Co-op, a business owned by 14,000 consumers and Derek is a former editor of Psychology Today magazine and president of the La Jolla Democratic Club.

Todd Gloria’s New Role in the Assembly

Democrats for Equality,

Earlier this week, something big happened that you may not have noticed. Our very own Assemblymember Todd Gloria added a new title to his resume and was named Interim Speaker Pro Tempore of the California State Assembly.

What does this mean? What does this do?

It means that on an interim basis, Assemblymember Gloria will exercise the duties and powers of the Assembly Speaker in their absence, and will conduct and preside over Assembly floor sessions. You can check out Todd presiding over his first floor session here on The California Channel.

Congratulations Todd!

In Solidarity,

Will Rodriguez-Kennedy
President,
San Diego Democrats for Equality
