Renew Your Club Membership!

Democrats for Equality,

It’s PRIDE SEASON folks! You know what that means… it’s time to renew your club membership!

A couple of years ago, we switched to 1-year annual memberships with a target renewal date of July 1st. This was done for a couple of reasons: 1) simplify our club’s membership renewal process, and 2) hopefully, make it an easy-to-remember time of year: if it’s Pride, it’s time to renew.

If you’ve joined recently or renewed your membership in the last couple of months, then you’ll be fine until next year. If it’s been awhile, and you can’t really remember when the last time you paid your club dues, then maybe it’s time to renew.

San Diego Democrats for Equality is only as strong as you, our members.

So many of you have been with us for decades — some of you from the very beginning!

You’ve been with us from the highest of highs (major election successes), and the lowest of lows (those times we forget to order food for the meetings! oops). Some of you have maybe only been with us for a couple months or even a year.

We love all of you — and we want y’all to stay involved. Please continue your membership with the best damn Democratic club this side of the Cleveland National Forest!

Also… here’s some BIG NEWS about our 2019 Pride Kickoff event! We had announced at our club meeting last week that we were in talks with some generous sponsors about making our kickoff even bigger.

The bad news is we are no longer selling tickets… and there were a handful of club members who had purchased tickets, so we’ll reach out to you to individually to refund those ticket purchases.

The even better news is this… thanks to those generous sponsors, this event will be complimentary to all of our club members who want to attend — and, we’re starting a little earlier!

Join us Thursday, July 11th from 6:00pm to 9:00pm at FruitCraft in Hillcrest (1477 University Ave., San Diego, 92103).

As we are less than a month out from San Diego Pride, we will be marching in the parade on Saturday, as well as hosting a booth on Saturday and Sunday during the festival with the San Diego County Democratic Party.

Pride Parade: If you want to march with us in the parade, we are hoping to gather somewhere near the Hillcrest DMV on Saturday, July 13th. We will know our specific location in a couple weeks. We would ask that everyone show up no later than 9:30am. The parade itself starts at 10am, so please plan your travel accommodations accordingly.

Pride Booth: If you would like to volunteer at our booth at any time during the Pride Festival in Balboa Park on Saturday, July 13th or Sunday, July 14th, please let us know your preferred availability on this organizing form here.
All told it should be a great time — we are also conducting a Presidential Straw Poll for the Democratic candidates at the booth! Of course, we will all be interested in seeing the outcome of those results Monday morning after the festival.

Renew your memberships!
