Join the Harvey Milk LGBTQ Democratic Club for our January General Membership Meeting at 7pm on Tuesday.
The Membership will elect our new 2022 Executive Board. And with up to four local elections in 2022, it is a critical time for our Club. So be sure to attend and make your voice heard in deciding our new leadership team.
You can view all our board nominees at www.milkclub.org/board. If you would like to nominate someone, email their name, email address, and the specific board position to [email protected].
The Milk Club will also be joined by Jane Kim, the incoming State Director for the California Working Families Party, to learn more about WFP and their launch throughout the Bay Area and California.
Don't miss it on Zoom at bit.ly/milkmeeting.
This is a remote-only meeting and will take place exclusively on Zoom. We have moved our meeting entirely online due to the surge of the Omicron variant and hope to be together again in-person soon.
Thank you to everyone who attended last night's "Back to HIV" January PAC Meeting with Dr. Monica Gandhi. If you missed it, you can watch it here.
The PAC also voted to support the following:
1) A motion that the Milk Club sponsor an upcoming action at City Hall urging the Mayor, the Board of Supervisors, and the Department of Public Health to make HIV a priority in SF. (Stay tuned for more details.)
2) A motion to oppose any budget supplemental to increase police staffing, and any efforts to criminalize drug users; and to support the expedition of a service linkage center and safe consumption site, and related hiring of mental health professionals.
3) A motion to support non-police responses to 911 calls about mental health emergencies, and allowing dispatchers to contact alternative responses.
