CANCELED – Dems for Equality General Meeting on Thursday, February 28th
Due to a death in his family, Alberto Cortes, who will be facilitating the “Reinventing San Diego Democrats for Equality” membership program, will not be available this month as planned. The Executive Board voted to postpone that session until next month’s meeting (March 28). Because it was not practical to plan a substitute program on short notice, the Board decided to simply cancel the club meeting this Thursday. We apologize for any inconvenience and look forward to our discussion next month.

We’re sending 10 Delegates to the Democratic National Convention – the most LGBT inclusive event in the history of the Democratic Party
San Diego Democrats for Equality will send 10 delegates to this year’s Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, NC on Sept. 3 – 6, the highest number of delegates the club has ever sent to the Convention since its founding in 1975.
This comes on the heels of significant changes to the party platform, including the addition of a plank in support of marriage equality, and unprecedented support for the LGBT community from President Obama since he took office, including the repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell and the withdrawal of support for the Defense of Marriage Act from his administration in the court system.
“A tremendous amount of progress has been made in the last four years under the leadership of President Obama,” said Doug Case, President of Dems for Equality. “We are incredibly proud to be an active part of a party that has supported our community, and we will continue to work to ensure that the President gets reelected.”
