Baseball & Fireworks for Sean Bowie (by Sister District San Francisco)

  • Domicile of Doug, Suzi, Huka, and Sneetch (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Come out to enjoy a view of the fireworks from the stadium and help light up Arizona's 18th District as our guests!  The GOP still cheats to win elections, holding far more representation than they deserve. Help turn the tide in Arizona! Donations to Democrats in state legislative races like Sean Bowie's -- especially those in GOP trifectas -- are the key to reversing the political fate of our country. If you can't celebrate in person with us, you can still contribute to support Sean Bowie on ActBlue.

A Bipartisan Approach to Health Care Reform

Early in 2018, many of the best known leaders from across American health care joined forces to launch United States of Care, a bipartisan initiative to ensure access to quality, affordable health care for every American. The founding belief is that when political rhetoric is removed, Americans outside of Washington agree more than they disagree about health care access and coverage. The organization seeks politically and economically viable solutions that can garner broad support that won’t disappear with the next election or presidential administration. The group’s Board and Founders Council is a who’s who of U.S. health care, several of whose members will be on hand for this lively discussion.

Dan Pfeiffer, Co-Host of Pod Save America and Former White House Communications Director

How did we get here and what do we do next?

Pfeiffer was one of President Obama’s longest-serving advisors, working on two presidential campaigns and spending 6 years in the White House as communications director and senior advisor to the president. Now he co-hosts the wildly popular Pod Save America podcast, along with Jon Favreau and Tommy Vietor, which brings insiders' expertise to bear in a twice-weekly discussion about the latest happenings in the White House and Congress.

Pfeiffer shares never-before-heard stories about working in the Oval Office and reflects on those years of massive change that helped rewrite the rules of politics. He addresses the current political landscape and offers a hopeful message for where our country can go from here.

Malcom Nance: How Russia is Destroying Democracy (San Francisco)

  • 110 The Embarcadero, Taube Family Auditorium San Francisco, CA, 94105 United States (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Retired intelligence officer Malcolm Nance knows about Vladimir Putin and the threat he poses to American sovereignty. From the ongoing investigation into Russian interference in our elections to Putin’s persistent presidency, Russia has a looming presence. Nance suggests this presence isn’t benign but part of a greater plan to break down western democracy.

His new book, The Plot to Destroy Democracy: How Putin’s Spies Are Winning Control of America and Dismantling the West, exposes how Russia has supported the campaigns of right-wing extremists throughout the United States and Europe. By seeking to create antidemocratic sentiment around the world, Nance argues Putin can leverage his strength to build a Russian-led alliance of nondemocratic autocracies. With the future of democracy hanging in the balance, Nance digs into the plans and goals of its enemies. 

Join Nance for an important conversation about Russia’s plan to unseat democracy and learn what we can do about it.

Can American Democracy Be De-Polarized? Some Thoughts on Restoring Democratic Discourse and Accountability (San Francisco)

Political polarization in contemporary American politics doesn’t simply reflect the fact that we are more sharply divided on the issues but instead stems from deeper structural forces like rising economic inequality, declining social mobility, rapid cultural change,and the reorganization of the public sphere with the rise of digital and social media. If correct, this suggests that in order to make our politics less divisive and fractious we cannot simply will ourselves to be more open to the other side but must instead seek to address the structural causes of polarization. This would require a successful reactivation of what will be described as the politics of democratic self-repair, i.e. when democratic citizens mobilize to fix problems with democracy itself. In this talk Professor David Peritz will discuss the general idea of this kinds of politics, the impediments to its successful reactivation in the early 21st century, and some recent more promising developments.

  • 251 5th Avenue San Francisco, CA, 94118 United States (map)

Come one, come all, to a special Sister District Brunch where you can meet Arizona State Senator, Sean Bowie!

As Sister District volunteers, Ivan Rhudick and Jill Alvarez are hosting a fundraising on Sunday, June 10 for our first 2018 candidate.

Eventbrite: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/sister-district-sf-brunch-with-sean-bowie-tickets-46329687342

Sean is running for re-election, after becoming the firstDemocrat to ever win his district! Now, the AZ GOP are targeting his race. That’s why we’re fundraising for Sean Bowie. He's a young, first-term incumbent in AZ’s State Senate whose top priority is education - he's worked to reduce class size and increase funding for teachers' salaries in a state ranked 49th in teacher pay. He's also fought to expand Social Security and roll back giveaways to corporations/special interests. And he's pushed to expand healthcare access, too. Republicans have been advancing their agenda through states for years -- think Kansas’ tax experiment (and failure), the North Carolina transgender bathroom bill, and the abhorrent Ohio abortion bill. And that's just the tip of the iceberg!

 

Don’t miss this chance to meet Sean, some great Sister District volunteers, and enjoy Jill's excellent cooking!

Impact on Tap: Let's Take Back Congress (San Francisco)

It's time for Impact on Tap! Join us on June 7 for a happy hour homebrew beer tasting as we work to take back the House this year by raising crucial funds for the Democratic nominees in Swing Districts across the country, especially in California.

Donate Here: https://swingleft.org/fundraise/impactontap

We’re supporting Swing Left, a national grassroots network working to take back the House for Democrats. Our plan is to raise as much money and mobilize as many grassroots volunteers as possible for the eventual Democratic nominees in 70 critical Swing Districts.

The midterm election season is just getting started. That's why we need to get our Democratic Swing District nominees as much grassroots support as possible. Even more, the path to taking back the House in November goes right through California.  It's critical that we lead the charge. You don’t need to give a large amount—each and every dollar makes a difference. 

What's Impact on Tap? Impact on Tap is about three things: supporting great organizations, bringing people together to talk about issues that matter, and tasting homebrew. It's about engaging around important issues facing our communities and country and having an impact locally and nationally. Prior organizations supported by Impact on Tap include Forward Majority, Code for America, New Leaders Council. Emerge, and Planned Parenthood. Special shout out to Zach and the Exygy team for hosting us at their office in the Mission! 

Join us Thursday, June 7th from 6:00pm - 8:00pm for an evening of tasting homebrew for a good cause. We'll have a number of Beeraucracy beers available for tasting, including Grab 'Em By the Patriarchy, State of the Brewnion, the Governator, My President is Black, and Smashing Trumpkins, as well as the award-winning Collect-Hef Bargaining and Harvey Milk Chocolate Stout.

Run with Ambassador Krissy Moehl and Takanya Film Screening (San Francisco)

Hosted by Sports Basement (San Francisco - Presidio) and 2 others

Home to one of the last tracts of old-growth Gondwanan rainforest in the world, the takayna, or Tarkine, region of northwest Tasmania is at the mercy of timber and mining operations. Told through the eyes of a rural doctor who runs ultramarathon distances deep into the forest to scout logging operations, takayna unpacks the complexities of modern conservation and challenges us to consider the importance of our last truly wild places. 

Join us for a community fun run led by Patagonia Running Ambassador Krissy Moehl followed by a special screening of takayna.

Doors 5:30PM, Run 6PM, Film 7PM.

Get Out the Vote in Tracy Before June 5th

Hosted by Indivisible Berkeley: ://www.facebook.com/events/196697021144044/

Please volunteer to help Get Out the Vote for the June 5th Primary in Tracy! We need help with canvassing, voter registration, phone banking and text banking. PLEASE NOTE:

Memorial Day weekend we are doing a "literature drop" which means leafletting without ringing the doorbell. 
This is the RSVP form for *canvassing:*
https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSeFwEaRX9BAqP9C4Lj4CD_j5fyBv0sUdw9SAWPZUwIw3OzSUA/viewform
If you can canvass any of those days or want to inquire about carpooling, please reach out to our canvassing captains by emailing canvassing+owner@indivisibleberkeley.org.
Canvassing is door to door contact: Sounds scary? We know, but we will not let you go out there without the proper training and partnership - don't worry. Once you are out and about, you will notice that it is not difficult at all and end up being a lot of fun. 
But if going out yourself sounds a little to scary, we totally understand, and we also always need organizational help in the office around the canvassings. We'd love to have you greet volunteers, help set up tables, provide food, etc.
volunteer to help staff the office here:
https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSc_PitYTLhP2Ojgpt8DxWmGfI7YaTVWd80ySZHayetpcfWU3Q/viewform
All of these are fun and great ways to get in contact with our community and get out the vote. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us at info@greatertracydems.org.

San Francisco Swing Left GOTV Canvass (Manteca, CA)

Event: https://actionnetwork.org/events/june-2-san-francisco-swing-left-gotv-canvass

Join me and other Swing Left volunteers as we GET OUT THE VOTE (GOTV) in Manteca, which is part of Swing District CA10, for Democrats for the June 5th Primary in CA 10.   This is the last weekend before the June 5 Primary.   There are now two Republicans and five Democrats running to represent the Congressional CA-10 District in Congress.  Due to California's "Jungle Primary," we need to greatly increase Democrat turnout on June 5 to make sure that a Democrat will be one of the two "top vote getters" and move on to the November ballot.

If you haven’t heard of it, Swing Left is a national grassroots network that helps people take action in their closest Congressional Swing District. The goal is simple: Swing the House in the 2018 midterm elections and put a check on the Trump agenda. If you have never canvassed before, this is an easy way to get started! Swing Left will provide materials and online trainings so you have everything you need to know to have a great time and make a meaningful impact. .

We really need your help in getting people to the Central Valley in carpools. If you have an extra seat please let us know. Click HERE if you can offer a seat or need a ride for this shift.
