For writing letters…. The Democrats of Rossmoor will continue to partner with Swing Left in 2019 and 2020.

The Swing Left tactic uses volunteer power from all over the country to send lots of personal letters to potential new voters in 11 super states. You can make an impact.  

Interested? Sign up here for one or more Wednesday letter-writing sessions or drop in on any Wednesday from 4 to 6 p.m. It only takes one hour. We do ask for donations for postage. If writing is not your thing, donations for postage will gladly be accepted.

July 1, Monday — Book Club: In My Own Words by Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg

3 p.m. in Gateway Multipurpose Room 2

My Own Words is a fascinating glimpse into the life of one of America’s most influential women and “a tonic to the current national discourse” (The Washington Post). From the publisher: “In this collection Justice Ginsburg discusses gender equality, the workings of the Supreme Court, being Jewish, law and lawyers in opera, and the value of looking beyond US shores when interpreting the US Constitution. Throughout her life Justice Ginsburg has been (and continues to be) a prolific writer and public speaker. This book’s sampling is selected by Justice Ginsburg and her authorized biographers Mary Hartnett and Wendy W. Williams, who introduce each chapter and provide biographical context and quotes gleaned from hundreds of interviews they have conducted.”

Frontline and ProPublica have been investigating how the violent and infamous rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, in 2017 became a watershed moment for the white supremacist movement.

He supports a huge public investment in finding cures from Alzheimer’s to ALS to cancer. He has also called for no-interest federal student loans, tax-free employer contributions, and debt-free college for public university students who do work-study and commit to bettering their communities after.

July 25, Thursday — General Meeting: Speaker Felicia Marcus

6 p.m. Town Square/7 p.m. speaker at the Event Center

Felicia Marcus is the previous chair of the State Water Resources Control Board. Under Marcus’s guidance, the Board helped navigate California out of one of the worst droughts in our history, championed solutions to help fulfill the human right to safe water, developed laws and regulations to bring our groundwater basins into balance, and began to bring our water data systems into the 21st century.

Previously, Marcus served in positions in government, the nonprofit world, and the private sector. In government, she served as the administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency Region IX in the Clinton Administration, where she was known for her work in bringing unlikely allies together for environmental progress on a wide range of issues. Prior to that, she headed Los Angeles’ Department of Public Works at a time when the city went from garnering lawsuits to garnering national awards for environmental excellence. In the nonprofit world, Marcus was the western director for the Natural Resources Defense Council and was the Executive VP/COO of the Trust for Public Land, a national nonprofit devoted to conserving land for people. She also was a private and nonprofit sector attorney in Los Angeles and has served on many nonprofit boards and advisory councils.
