Once again, DGR had a full house for the Democratic candidates’ Debate Watch Party on September 12th. Food, drink, discussion and policies were enjoyed by all. We will be hosting future events as we get closer to the primaries and the list of candidates narrows. Thanks to Trish Morgan for arranging our two parties, Fusion Restaurant and Bar for hosting, and all of you who participated!
Our next meeting is Thursday, September 19th, at Sizzler Restaurant, 6631 Clay Street, Riverside(according to Sizzler/ Jurupa, according to Riversiders!). Meeting begins at 7 p.m.; please come early if you wish to order food from the order counter. For those who aren’t steak or chicken consumers, they do offer fish and a large salad bar.
Our guest speaker will be Maha Rizvi, Regional Director for the California Democratic Party.
In October we have Tiffany Farris, a survivor of the 2017 Las Vegas mass shooting who then endured, as principal of Castleview Elementary, a hostage situation at the school in the same year.
Future planned speakers include a representative from the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, Democratic candidates for Riverside’s mayor, and Kevin E. Grisham, Ph.D from Cal State San Bernardino’s, Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism.
