Feb 18 – Galantines Party!

Please join us for our first annual Galentine’s day celebration! Bring your own valentines or write a quick note of appreciation on the funny, goofy, sweet valentines we will provide. Let’s all recognize and honor the amazing women we love and admire, women who nourish us and inspire us. Not quite sure what Galentine’s Day is all about?

Galantines Day explained


Vice President Becca Miller will also share the results of our survey and discuss how this should guide us in planning our future activities, programming and meetings. 


At our January meeting, we had a forum to question the two candidates for Chair of the San Diego Democratic Party. We congratulate the newly elected Chair, William Rodriguez-Kennedy and welcome him back anytime!

Our club member, Oren Robinson, has been elected Secretary of the San Diego Democratic Party. Congratulations to Oren!

Vote for your fellow Woman’s Club members running for ADEM elections starting this weekend

The Assembly District Election Meetings (ADEMs) are held every two years to elect 14 delegates from each Assembly District to serve as your representatives at the California Democratic Party convention. These elections begin this Saturday.

The following are the scheduled ADEMs in San Diego County. Listed are current members of Democratic Woman’s Club of San Diego who are running to give voice to our concerns as party delegates.

The ADEMs are open to all registered Democrats in the respective district to attend and cast votes. Any non-Democrat may also attend, and by re-registering as a Democrat at the ADEM, may cast a vote.

The top seven women and top seven men (or identifying as other-than-female) vote-getters will be selected as Assembly District Delegates. You will need two ballots, one for delegate selection and one for your Executive Board vote. Please encourage your friends, family, and neighbors to attend your local ADEM. You must be present to vote. You do not have to stay around after you vote but it’s a lot of fun and the votes you cast play a large role in how our state party addresses and prioritizes issues you care about!

Please support our members with your vote. Remember, it may be you the next time!
