Please join us on Zoom May 26 for our next meeting. Our guests will be Will Rodriguez-Kennedy, Chairman of the San Diego Democratic Party and Steve Padilla, Chula Vista City Councilmen. Both gentlemen were hospitalized in March with Covid-19 and they will share their experiences with us.
Will Rodriguez-Kennedy will also discuss the challenges the county party faces to support campaigns now that large gatherings and door to door in person voter contacts are no longer safe.
Please send us a message below if you are interested in attending and we will send you the Zoom link. We will have a social “happy hour” from 6:30-7:00 p.m., and our meeting will begin at 7:00 p.m.
Chelsey Birgisdottir from the ACLU will be our guest speaker.
2020 has brought a new report by Campaign Zero that looks at the issue of racial and identity profiling in CA by the San Diego Police Department and San Diego Sheriff Department’s data and analyzes it for disparities. Unsurprisingly, it confirmed what many communities across California have shared about their experience with the police: that people are being profiled and policed differently based on their identity. With this new data, we now have numbers to understand the severity of biased policing issues.
ACLU of San Diego and Imperial Counties will share findings from these latest reports and share how to get involved in their #ENDTHESTOPS campaign.
Please join us Tuesday, March 24 at Joyce Beers Community Center, 3900 Vermont. 6:30 p.m., social, 7:00 p.m., program. We are open to the public!
Our guests will include a speaker from The League of Women Voters to discuss the 3 current ballot measures. We will then hear from a representative of No on C and a representative of Yes on C. Members in good standing will have an opportunity to vote to endorse or oppose measure C.
We will also be hearing from a representative from CountMe 2020 Census Outreach. The 2020 census is quickly approaching and it is important that everyone participate.
