California's new Attorney General will be the keynote speaker at the San Diego County Democratic Party's Roosevelt Dinner on April 8. "Xavier is on the verge of becoming one of the party's lead adversaries against a Trump administration," as NBC News reported when his appointment was announced in December. "Becerra will be in a key position to challenge ... Donald Trump's policies and mandates that seek to undo those of California and other states on everything from energy and the environment to immigration, marriage equality, and health care."
The San Diego County Democratic Party is hiring a part-time Office Administrator to work out of the Party’s headquarters in Kearny Mesa. This employee will be responsible for day-to-day office management, correspondence, database maintenance, event support, and some volunteer coordination (details below). To be considered, please email your résumé to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our County Party has been hearing from Democrats all over San Diego County who are thinking about running for office or managing a campaign. That's why we're launching our candidate training program early this year with an Introduction to Campaigns on Saturday, March 18, at 1:00 p.m. This training event will help attendees understand what's involved in running and how to get off to strong and early start.
San Diego County Democratic Party Chair Jessica Hayes has issued a statement upon the president's first address to Congress: “We have been heartened by the unprecedented political involvement since the election in San Diego County. On behalf of the Democratic Party, thank you for fighting Trump's orders and policies, both in the streets and in the courts. We see you. We stand with you. We applaud you for showing the world what America truly stands for. Looking beyond the rabid rhetoric of the president’s speeches and tweets, San Diego Democrats will continue to fight."
The daily outrages inflicted by Trump are unprecedented -- and so is the response of people of conscience everywhere. Our elected leaders need to hear from us when they are silent or fall short, just as when they make us proud by standing up and doing right. The people most in danger under this new regime need to hear our message, too: that the not-so-silent majority is fighting back, speaking out, and organizing every day.
At our annual Roosevelt Dinner, San Diego Democrats will honor several local volunteers and leaders for their exceptional service to our Party and the San Diego community. Anybody can submit nominations by going to www.sddemocrats.org/awards; nominations will be open through Friday, February 10. Awards include Volunteer of the Year, Legislator of the Year, Leadership, and Making a Difference. Awardees will be recognized on April 8, 2017. You can read more details about the event, and purchase a ticket or table, at www.sddemocrats.org/dinner.
On January 20, a man will be sworn in as President of the United States whose rhetoric has been inflammatory and derogatory toward far too many groups of people. You can take to the streets that Friday to protest, then march in solidarity with the national Women's March on Saturday, to stand up for fellow Americans and show that we will demand justice. (Click for descriptions and more details. These events are independently organized independently of the Party.)
This past weekend thousands of people gathered to influence the future of the California Democratic Party, by voting in what are called the ADEM elections. Held every two years, voters chose more than 1,000 State Party delegates across the state. California led the country in repudiating Donald Trump and standing up for the values we believe in. These newly elected representatives will make sure the California Democratic Party continues to do so over the next four years. To see preliminary results, go to www.cadem.org/our-party/adem.
Come out and support local candidates in their final pushes to win San Diego!
Campaigns are won through grassroot efforts done by volunteers. Our dedicated volunteers have been very successful in contacting voters to discuss the many candidates and propositions the San Diego County Democratic Party has endorsed.
