This message has two parts.  First, we are excited to announce two upcoming events, for each of which the venues are tbd — more information will follow soon. I’m sure you’ll want to attend them both, so save the dates.

On Sunday July 8th from 2:30 to 4:30 the DVC will host Michael McFaul, former ambassador to Russia and current Stanford professor and prominent media pundit.  He will speak to us about Russia and give his insights into the continuing drama of our current geopolitics.




On Saturday July 28th from 1:00 to 3:00 the DVC will host Congressman Adam Schiff (CA-28), ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee and an increasing target of Trump insults.  We’ll get to hear some of the inside story of Congressional defense against Trump/Republican attacks on our democracy.




Next, I need to pay tribute to the amazing community that we are blessed to be a part of.  During the four days leading up to the primary, volunteers calling for the California State Democratic Party across the state made more than 50,000 calls to voters in targeted red-ro-blue districts.  Of those 50,000 calls, half were made from the Bay Area.  And DVC volunteers were responsible for the largest number of those Bay Area calls by far.  WE MADE A BIG DIFFERENCE IN THE DEMOCRATIC SUCCESS!!!

I continue to be inspired and driven by the unparalleled passion, energy and expertise of our remarkable volunteers.

I look forward to seeing you soon.
