New Port Commissioner, Protest Gay Conversion Convention, and Jon Ossoff Phonebank!

Democrats for Equality,

Our next meeting is Thursday June 22nd, 2017 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.

Congratulations to club member Michael Zucchet on his city council appointment to the San Diego Port Commission!

Tomorrow (Thursday), the largest annual convention promoting gay conversion therapy is coming to Mission Valley… because reasons. The San Diego Coalition Against Gay Conversion is hosting a protest at Hilton San Diego Mission Valley from 6:00pm to 8:00pm.

If you’d like to attend the protest, they’re encouraging folks to carpool. Parking is available at Planned Parenthood Mission Valley — it’s a 4 minute walk to the protest from there.

This past weekend, Club Treasurer Craig Roberts was in Georgia walking precincts for Jon Ossoff who is running for Congress. This is a dead-heat congressional seat that Republicans have held for decades — it’s also New Gingrich’s old seat (remember him?), and wouldn’t it be sweet justice to win there?

The Scott Peters campaign is hosting a phone bank this Saturday at Party HQ for Jon Ossoff. Details are below.

Finally, 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.

In Solidarity.
