Overturn Citizens United Yes on Prop 59 campaign and convention delegate at DGR General Meeting

Join the Democrats of Greater Riverside on Thursday, Aug. 18th in hosting Michele Sutter from the Overturn Citizens United, Yes on Prop 59 Committee at our General Meeting. The meeting will run from 6 to 9 p.m. at Mexicali Bar and Grill, located at 1690 Spruce Street, Riverside.

Michele led the successful 2014 push for the MOVI sponsored SB 1272, The Overturn Citizens United Act through the California legislature. The bill became Proposition 49 and she was briefly the Chair of the Yes on Proposition 49 Campaign Committee, before Prop 49 was removed from the ballot by order of the Supreme Court of California.

The Overturn Citizens United Act was reintroduced into the California legislature as SB 254. The Overturn Citizens United Act, Prop 59, will finally appear on the November 2016 California ballot. Proposition 59 will direct California’s elected officials use all of their constitutional authority to overturn Citizens United.

We will also be hosting a Riverside delegate to the Democratic Convention and hearing from them about their experience.

In addition, we will also be giving updates on volunteer opportunities and our upcoming fundraiser.
