We are hosting a Special Event this Sunday (8/28) at the Democratic HQ at 2 pm.
This event will feature one of the most progressive candidates in this valley. Greg Rodriquez is running for State Assembly in the 42nd District (which includes our area). This is NOT just him talking to us… this is OUR opportunity to ask questions about the issues we are concerned about… and what he can/will do to address them.The Headquarters is at 67-555 E. Palm Canyon, Suite c104, Cathedral City.(Behind McDonalds, across from Trader Joe’s on 111.)
Bring an interested friend… we want as many issues brought up as possible…so we can decide AFTER the event, if we, as a Club, should (or should not) endorse Greg.
Senator Diane Feinstein is pushing for Federal legislation or executive action to provide for three new national monuments in the southern Calif desert. It would designate new wilderness acres; add to existing national parks; designate additional waterways as Wild and Scenic and create permanent protections for off-highway recreation areas. These are places of historic, natural, cultural and scientific importance.
National Monument status would elevate the protection of one of California’s most diverse landscapes, as well as protect wildlife corridors between the San Bernardino Mountains, San Jacinto Mountains and Joshua National Park.
The Planned Parenthood Riverside County Inaugural Dinner & Fundraiser will be featuring Sandra Fluke, the courageous law student who came forward to testify before the U. S. Congress regarding birth control and who was later reviled by the likes of Rush Limbaugh, et al. as the speaker at the event.
There is a rather hefty price tag for most occupiers for this event, but it is for the important cause of raising funds for Planned Parenthood, who is fighting against a continuing assault on women’s reproductive rights in the ongoing War on Women and should be well worth it.
It will be held at the Miramonte Resort & Spa at 45000 Indian Wells Lane, Indian Wells on Thursday at 5:30 p.m.
