Harvey Milk LGBTQ Democratic Club: PAC Endorsement Recommendation Meeting
August 18 @ 12:30 pm - 6:30 pmFree
Join our PAC as we vote on endorsement recommendations for our General Membership meeting the following Tues., Aug. 20 (all open to the public)
The Harvey Milk Lesbian / Gay / Bisexual / Transgender / Queer Democratic Club shall work within the Democratic Party and elsewhere to bring the issue of Lesbian / Gay / Bisexual / Transgender / Queer rights to the forefront of political campaigns; shall lobby for legislation which upholds the rights of Lesbians, Gays, Bisexuals, Transgender, Queer and other peoples; and shall encourage and support the election and appointment of Out Lesbians, Gays, Bisexuals, Transgender, and Queer people to public office. We shall also organize San Francisco’s large Lesbian / Gay / Bisexual / Transgender / Queer Community into a powerful political voice, demanding nothing less of candidates than full public support for Lesbian / Gay / Bisexual / Transgender / Queer rights.
We shall form coalitions designed to solve problems of joint concern with racial and ethnic minorities and others who understand the interconnectedness of all struggles for equality. We shall build a close alliance with the Feminist Movement, with which we recognize a special kinship in goals. And we shall further economic and social justice for all people. We also expect politicians to take progressive stands on economic issues; on the rights of women, workers, and minorities; on protecting the environment; and on international affairs.
