Jan 18 – Monthly Meeting – Endorsements, Elections & the Party

2016 is a big deal. There are a lot of important and exciting elections coming up. At this first meeting of the year we’ll be learning about the structure of the Democratic Party and how we can all get involved.

In order for our representative at the January pre-endorsement caucus to vote as our members determine, we’ll make endorsements in local state races.

We’ll also elect officers of the club for 2016.

Steve Rivera, former California Democratic Party Region 20 Director, will explain the party structure and the endorsement process. We’ll also learn how, as registered Democrats, any of us can run to become a member of the San Diego County Democratic Party Central Committee.

Having a voice in decisions made by the local Democratic Party is important for women and for progressives.
