Club Meeting Tomorrow & ADEMS!

This week, teachers in Los Angeles Unified went on strike advocating for higher pay, more nurses and counselors, and smaller class sizes.

Our next club meeting is this Thursday at 7:00pm at Joyce Beerss Community Center in Hillcrest (3900 Vermont Street)!

We will be holding elections for positions for Club Representative for the Democratic Party, and GO Team liaison. We will also select our Nominating Committee for club officer elections to be held in February.

Also, We’ll be welcoming guest speakers from our brothers and sisters at the San Diego Labor Democratic Club for a “Labor 101” presentation.

The timing of this presentation could not be more appropriate given events of the past week. 35,000 teachers in Los Angeles Unified are on strike for the first time in more than 30 years, advocating for higher wages, more nurses and counselors, and smaller class sizes. In solidarity, thousands of parents and students have joined the marches.

Finally, the last round of ADEM elections are coming up this month! Assembly District elections are held every two years to elect delegates to our state party’s convention. 14 delegates (7 self-identified females, and 7 self-identified males) and 1 executive board representative are elected per Assembly District.

If you are not sure which Assembly District you live in, please check your address at this website.

Congratulations to club members Evlyn Andrade-Heymsfield and Ryan Darsey who were elected delegates in AD 71!

Congratulations to club members Bernadette Butkiewicz, Gretchen Newsom, Codi Vierra, Jordan Beane, Joe LaCava, Kevin Lourens, and Brian Polejes who were elected delegates in AD 78!
