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.
