State Legislatures: The Super Power of Democracy!

September 25, 2019


Wednesday, September 25, 2019
6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

State Legislatures: The Super Power of Democracy!
Special Guests: CA St. Sen. Jerry Hill; CA St. Assemblymembers Kevin Mullin & Marc Berman

This is Sister District’s Second Annual State Legislature Super Power Event! Our 3 capable and effective CA State representatives (Sen. Jerry Hill and Assemblymembers Kevin Mullin and Marc Berman) will update us on the impact of the 2018-2019 CA Legislative session and all the laws passed that will help California today and be a bellweather for the rest of the country going forward. California is a great example of the power of state legislatures to be the “laboratories of democracy” and our guests also will share how California is learning from other state legislatures in important areas such as fighting climate change, enacting gun safety rules and protecting voting rights. For those of you who joined us last year, you know this will be a passionate, uplifting evening. For those who haven’t watched our great representatives in action, you are in for a real treat!

The event is a fundraiser for Cheryl Turpin, current House Delegate for VA85, who is running to flip the Virginia Senate district 7 seat blue. If Cheryl Turpin wins in November, Democrats likely will take control of the chamber: we will need to flip just one other Senate seat to do so. The stakes couldn’t be higher.

$50 per person donation requested. There will be an opportunity for additional donations at the event.


* The event will be at the home of a Sister District Captain in San Mateo; the address will be emailed to you after you RSVP.
** The ActBlue link will be emailed to you after you RSVP. ActBlue donations in advance are preferred, but checks will be accepted at the event. No cash will be accepted at the event.
