General Membership Meeting
Join the Harvey Milk LGBTQ Democratic Club for our February General Membership Meeting, in person at 302 Valencia and on Zoom at bit.ly/milkmeeting! We'll be joined by Dr. Grant Colfax, the Director of Health for the City and County of San Francisco, to learn about the City's shift towards managing COVID-19 as an endemic, and what this means.
We'll also be joined by Gary McCoy, the Policy and Public Affairs Director of HealthRIGHT 360, to discuss the new Linkage Center in the Tenderloin and the critical services it provides in the face of our overdose crisis. And that's not all — we'll also be voting to early endorse in the Assembly District 21 race, and to elect new at-large officers to our Executive Board!
