 Don't Put the Picnic Stuff Away Yet 

San Diego Democrats for Equality Picnic

We had a great time last year with friends, food, drink and volleyball, and this year should be even better.  Plan to join us for the Club's annual picnic, September 7, Noon - 3:00 PM.

We'll once again be getting together at the Morley Field area of Balboa Park (Upas St at Texas).  We'll be the ones with the big San Diego Democrats for Equality banner.  You can't miss us.


The Club will provide drinks, plates, cups, utensils.  Please bring a dish to share - and you should probably bring a lawn chair and some sunscreen.  More Info


Join us. You'll be glad you did.





Freedom Awards is Coming


Freedom Awards 

The Freedom Awards is San Diego Democrats for Equality's premier event to recognize the contributions of our members, others in the LGBT community and our allies.  It's also our largest fundraising event during the year. We're getting down to the business of planning our next Awards and need your help. If you can help make sure the next Freedom Awards is a success, please drop us a line HERE. We'd love to have your expertise, desire to get involved or just your elbow grease. We'd love to have you.




Club Elects New Board Member - Seeks One More




At our August meeting, the Club elected Lilian Arreguin to our Board of Directors.  Lilian lives in Oceanside and provides some much needed North Co. perspective to our Club's leadership.  She also brings energy and a willingness to step in and get the stuff done that needs to be done. We hope you will congratulate her on her new office.


According to our By-laws, there is still one more vacancy on the Board.  We'd love to have you on the team as we move into the Club's 40th anniversary year.


If you are interested in election to the Board, contact us HERE.
