Mark Takano (41–D) will have a town hall in Riverside February 23rd. Join us to hear Rep Takano talk about the plans for the House Democrats in response to the Republican majority and the Trump administration.  

Local groups and chapters of national groups will have representatives and information tables on hand as well.

Seating is limited. Please plan to carpool as parking is also limited. Paid parking is available across the street in the RCC parking structure and at Calvary Presbyterian Church down the block on Magnolia (near the hospital)

The 41st congressional district includes Riverside, Jurupa Valley, Moreno Valley and Perris.

Booth at LULAC Health Fair

DGR is going to have a booth at the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) Health Fair. We’ll be registering people to vote, informing people about their constitutional rights, and letting people know about our club. 

The health fair provides medical services to low-income members of the community. We hope that we can also assist in empowering people to vote and educating them about their rights. 

We currently need volunteers, especially for the 1-3pm shift. If you plan on attending, please let us know in the comments how long you can stay and what times you can be there. 

Monthly Meeting

Monthly Meeting – Upcoming events and ways to resist

This February we’ll be meeting to discuss ways we can further resist the Trump administration and promote local Democratic causes.

Greg McKinley-Powell will discuss activism efforts to prevent the defunding of Planned Parenthood, including the current push to make sure the Senator does not remove funding from the latest budget.

We’ll have a speaker about the recent efforts to have Riverside declared a sanctuary city and the recent protest in front of City Hall. Plus updates about future endeavors on that front.

Charlene McKinley-Powell will discuss the DGR booth at the LULAC health fair on Saturday, Feb. 25, where we will register voters, and pass out pamphlets about immigrant rights and how to stand up for civil liberties, and promote our club. 

And finally, we’ll have a discussion about ways members can become involved in the club and how our committees work.
