Meeting Thursday, and Membership Renewals Are Due!

Democrats for Equality,

Our next meeting is THIS Thursday at 7pm at the Joyce Beers Community Center. So far on our agenda we will be addressed by San Diego City Attorney Mara Elliot and we will be considering an endorsement in the 2018 San Diego Sheriff’s race and a friendly incumbent endorsement for San Diego Unified School District – District B.

Mark your calendars! We are hosting our Pre-PRIDE Kick-Off again next month on Thursday, July 13 from 6:00pm to 8:00pm at FruitCraft, 1477 University Ave in Hillcrest.

RSVP information is coming soon, but just wanted to let y’all know to get ready since we’re a month out.

Also, club memberships are due for renewal on JUNE 30. If you’ve recently joined or renewed your membership since the election, you’re fine!

We need club renewals in the next few weeks to meet the state party’s deadline to qualify delegates to send to the party’s 2018 Pre-Endorsement Conference in January for state assembly, senate, and congressional races. Since we have members all over San Diego County, it would be nice to send delegates to vote in each assembly district (that’s how the state party does it).

Please renew your membership today on our website: democratsforequality.org/membership

Finally, on a more sad, somber note… we heard about the passing of longtime club member and activist Rich Ahrendt late last week. As you may know, Rich was a titan in the local EMS community, as well as a donor, supporter, mentor, friend, and advocate to many of our local progressive elected officials — especially those right here in Democrats for Equality.

It’s never easy to lose a friend or loved one. At our next meeting, if you have a touching or poignant story you’d like to share about Rich feel free to do so. We will follow up with everyone on celebration of life memorials as details are forthcoming.

In Solidarity.
