October Events & News

Here you will find a summary of upcoming events as well as news for the month of October.

QUALIFYING EVENT: GET OUT THE VOTE FOR KIM ALVARENGA

In lieu of the San Francisco Latino Democratic Club's General Membership Meeting for October, LDC will work to Get Out the Vote for Kim Alavarenga for District 11 Supervisor on Wednesday, October 19 from 5:00 PM - 8:00 PM.

As mentioned at our last General Body Meeting, the Democratic Party has essentially abandoned the qualified candidate of District 11. And even many of our progressive or like-minded allies have decided to remain neutral. Let's get out the vote and canvas and phone bank for our endorsed Latina candidate!

*This is a qualifying event and will count towards “good standing” status so be sure to sign in with VP of Membership, Jon Jacobo*

Date: Wednesday, Oct 19
Time: 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Location: Campaign Headquarters, 4458 Mission Street
