Here’s a very special message from Yours Truly and a special someone else that I’d like for you to meet. I hope you check out our new club, and you stay tuned to find out about our upcoming actions. Thanks.
The Time for Change Is Here!
On Tuesday, we inaugurated Barack Obama as the 44th President of the United States. Throughout the campaign, we’ve heard plenty about the idea of bringing change to Washington and to the entire nation. That is why, today, we are pleased to announce that the former “Eleanor Roosevelt Democratic Club” has been reestablished as “Harvey Milk Stonewall Democrats of Orange County“.
The club’s purpose is to make the Democratic Party and its elected officials responsive to the needs of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) community. To that end, we will be holding regular meetings, engaging in significant community outreach, endorsing pro-civil rights, and hopefully some openly LGBT, candidates for elected office as well as working with those currently in office.
We invite you to browse through our web site, MilkOC.org, and learn some more about our plans, meet the new board, and learn how to keep in touch with us. This club will be a great step forward for the Democratic Party and for Orange County’s LGBT community!
