2017 Pride Week Info!

Democrats for Equality,

It’s here. PRIDE WEEK!

Join us on Thursday for our 2017 PRIDE Kick-Off from 6:30pm to 8:00pm at FruitCraft, 1477 University Ave in Hillcrest. Our annual fundraiser is $15 for club members who have renewed their 2017 membership dues, and $30 for non-club members.

Purchase tickets for our Pride Kick-Off event here.

Then, this Saturday come join with us and march in our parade contingent in the Pride Parade. We will be assembling near the DMV on Normal Street in Hillcrest. Step-off for the parade will be 11:00am, so if you’re interested in marching with us please try and be there no later than 10:00am.

For more details or questions about the Pride Kick-Off or Parade, contact club president Will Rodriguez-Kennedy at president@democratsforequality.org, or call 619-709-0675.

Finally — and this is where the real work begins — we still need some volunteers to help stage our club booth, register voters, sign-up and renew club members, and promote our progressive issues and values on Saturday and Sunday. Shifts are available on both days! Volunteers will be given a complimentary ticket to the San Diego LGBT Pride Music Festival.

Click here if you’d like to sign-up to volunteer for our booth.

Last week, Will talked about the time I was left all alone in the booth for 5-and-a-half hours because of the rain storm. I was so miserable. Just me, the rain, and my lonely, lonely thoughts.

Trust me, Will still has not heard the end of it. If I knew how to play any kind of musical instrument, I would’ve written a song about it.

Anyway… long story short — let’s not have that happen again! Sign-up, volunteer, and let’s have some fun!

Finally, there will be a club meeting on Thursday, July 27th. It also happens to be Will’s 30th birthday (shh — don’t tell him, but we’re planning something big!)

It will be a short meeting, and the tentative agenda will include bylaw amendments (they will be sent out next week), consideration of changing our meeting dates to the 3rd Thursday. More info to come.


In Solidarity.
