As you may already know, Denise D'Anne, a former Co-President of the Milk Club, passed away on September 2nd. She was an early transgender activist and lifelong environmentalist and brought these value sets when she led this Club in 2010 with David Waggoner.

Denise D'Anne will be missed. So please plan to virtually attend our September General Membership Meeting this Tuesday, from 7-9pm, where we will discuss her life. Here is our full agenda:

1) Introduction & endorsement ballot description.
2) PAC Chair report.
3) Events & Fundraising report.
4) Presentations and Q&A with E-Board nominees Kurtis Wu for E-Board Outreach, Jasper Wilde for At-Large #1, and Joe Adkins for At-Large #2.
5) Reflections on the life on Denise D'Anne.
6) A discussion on Club civility.
7) New Business.

At our meeting, we will also virtually vote to endorse for Oakland City Council's At-Large Seat and for the SF Pride Board. (The PAC has given recommendations to Rebecca Kaplan for the Oakland City Council At-Large Seat and Laurence Berland and Tyler Breisacher for the SF Pride Board of Directors, so take that into consideration.)

We will also vote on electing the aforementioned Executive Board nominees.

If you knew Denise D'Anne and would like to talk about her life at our meeting, feel free to email us at [email protected] so that we can formally add you to our agenda.
