Backyard at Jack’s place! The Club will provide burgers (both meat and vegi), hot dogs, drinks, and a few additional delightful things. You are invited to join in the fun, bring something nice to share like some dessert, a salad, some kind of main dish, something to drink. You know the drill. But please bring a serving dish or plate for what you bring. Food cannot be heated here (not even a little bit). And please take your dishes home with you. Lot’s of candidates will be present.
Groups you can join who are working for a Democratic Congress this year:
– Indivisible Berkeley: phone-banking for various congressional races
– Working America: mobilizing volunteers in the Central Valley for CA-10 and CA-21 Congressional districts
