Humboldt Progressive Democrats to Hold Rally in HSU’s Kate Buchanan Room to ‘#RedefineDemocrat’
This is a press release from Humboldt Progressive Democrats:
Local progressive Democrats call for a rally of activists and supporters to make the California State Democratic Party more responsive to needs of real people.
A rally titled #RedefineDemocrat will be held on Saturday, September 9, 2017, from 1 – 4 p.m. at the Kate Buchanan Room on the campus of Humboldt State University.
Notable speakers from across the state will update activists on efforts to reform and advance the Democratic Party. Speakers will include:
Kimberly Ellis (Oakland, CA) was a 2017 candidate for Chair of the California State Democratic Party, and is currently challenging the results of that election at the State Party Convention.
Karen Bernal (Sacramento, CA) is the current Chair of the Progressive Caucus of the California Democratic Party, the largest caucus within the state party. Karen was a Bernie Sanders delegate in 2016.
Robert Shearer (McKinleyville, CA) is an HSU graduate student, an elected member of the Executive Board of the California Democratic Party. Robert was also a Bernie Sanders delegate in 2016. “We want to explore what kind of candidates and policies the Party should be championing to gain the popular support of eligible voters who do not trust the Party,” declared Shearer. “This Rally to #RedefineDemocrat will be a call to arms for local activists to fight for policy and politics that benefit Californians and their families.”
There is no cost to attend, and the event is ADA accessible. Reservations are required, at the request of the University, and can be made online at: http://bit.ly/2fGiXti
