Reminder! October General Meeting on Wednesday, October 20 - 7:00pm
Environmental Caucus at 5:30pm - same link
Get Out The Vote for the November election is well underway, and our October meeting is also coming soon!
We have sample ballots in-house, and if you are a PCO, you have been contacted about distribution for your precinct.
We have precincts with no PCO, however, so if you are not a PCO and would like to adopt a precinct, or if you are a PCO who wishes to do more than one precinct, please contact PCO chair and District Vice Chair Andrzej Montaño at [email protected]
We also have an excellent program for our October meeting! We will be presenting Inequities in Health Care with an excellent panel of experts in October.

Inequities in Health Care
Early on in this pandemic we witnessed the uneven toll that Covid-19 placed on communities of color and indigenous communities in our country. We know, however, that this is only one example of the extensive and devastating inequities in healthcare. In our upcoming session, experts will explore some of the origins of this problem and the role of policy in exacerbating or mitigating these inequities.
This is your formal call to the 46th District general meeting on Wednesday, September 29th, 2021, from 7:00 – 9:00pm. We had hoped to be meeting in person this month, but due to the Delta variant surge, we will still meet via Zoom for September.
