Stop AAPI Hate: 2 Years Later

Hi Clairemont Democrats,

Join us on Tuesday, May 10th at 7:00pm for (maybe?) our last virtual meeting before we resume in-person meetings. Our goal is to have one of our first in-person meetings after the June 7th Primary.

The month of May honors Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month. AAPI Democratic Club President Dr. Indroneal Banerjee will present an updated look at Stop AAPI Hate over the last year.

You can register for the May 10th meeting here.

Joint Club Meeting w/ U City Dems!

Hi Clairemont Democrats,

Join us for an exciting joint club meeting the U City Democratic Club on Monday, April 4th at 6:30pm — this will be an all-virtual club meeting.

Here is the Zoom link for the joint meeting! (you don’t need to register for this meeting!)

We have been trying to schedule our San Diego Unified School District Trustee Sabrina Bazzo for one of our meetings. Unfortunately, the San Diego Unified meetings are usually the same night as our Clairemont Dems meetings.

Thanks to Shaina Tigar, newly elected U City Dems President, we’ve been able to schedule Trustee Bazzo for a joint meeting between our clubs. There has been a lot of exciting changes at our San Diego schools, so this is your opportunity to hear directly from our elected trustee.

U City Dems members will be voting on a package of criminal justice bills presented by Team Justice Coalition at their last meeting. You can review their priority bills here.

Social time starts at 6:00pm and their meeting formally begins at 6:30pm.

Action Needed: Clairemont Redistricting!

Hi Clairemont Democrats!

There are a number of Clairemont residents sounding the alarm on redistricting.

At the last meeting of the City of San Diego’s Independent Redistricting Commission, they ended with a map that draws Clairemont into 4 DISTRICTS (image above)! This proposed map would split us — unlike any other community in the city — into portions of Council Districts 1, 2, 6, and 7.

This is abysmal, and we need to organize and start providing feedback to the Independent Redistricting Commission, including at their next commission meeting this Thursday, October 28th at 5:30pmInformation for their next meeting can be found here.

There is an alternate proposal (image below) supported by the Clairemont Town Council and many members of the Clairemont community below, which would unite our community in a single council district.

If you support the alternate plan as shown above, follow the directions below to show your support for keeping our community together!  And ask other Clairemonters who care about this community to do the same.

  • Step 1: Click on San Diego Redistricting Public Comment Portal
  • Step 2: Once you’re in the portal, click the green button “A Districting Plan”
  • Step 3: Scroll down to Submission Form and click District Plan
  • Step 4: Copy the URL link into the box labeled Districtr Plan:
    https://districtr.org/plan/68527?portal
  • Step 5: After the link has been pasted, fill out the rest of the form (please include your comments) and then click submit.

Thank you, and let’s make some noise on redistricting and unify our community!
