Our speaker this month will be Kate Yavenditti of Women Occupy San Diego and the National Lawyers Guild. She will be speaking about their proposed Charter Amendment that will change the current Community Review Board on Police Practices, which reviews investigations of police misconduct complaints that are done by SDPD, to an independent Commission on Police Practices, that does an independent investigation.
Women Occupy San Diego is an independent organization of San Diego County women dedicated to creating an equitable economic system and restoring government for and by the people rather than for corporations and the wealthy. Kate is a practicing attorney and activist.
We also will briefly be discussing ballot measures and we will hold our election for 2019 officers.

Howard Wayne represented San Diego in the California Legislature for six years, where he was the Chair of the Assembly Natural Resources Committee. He authored the first laws in the country to require testing of beach waters to protect human health, and to fund breast cancer treatment for poor women. His also established the San Diego Airport Authority and city-wide curbside recycling.
An adept political analyst, Howard told our club two years ago that a Trump path to victory was through the upper Midwest. That was exactly what happened the following November when Michigan, Ohio, and Wisconsin voted Republican. He came back in December to explain why that happened.
Howard will discuss political trends, where we are now, and how the fall elections may well turn out.
