The Wellstone Democratic Renewal Club was founded by veteran activists from the Civil Rights and Anti-War Movements in the darkest days of G.W. Bush’s Iraq War and Patriot Act back in 2003. The Club’s founders had grown tired of the Democratic Party’s rightward shift in the 1990s, and its tepid response to multiple crises threatening our democracy and the movements for racial and social justice.

At this dinner event (curated from Oakland’s Chinatown by Oakland Mayor Emerita Jean Quan), you will hear about the challenges and opportunities facing California’s future from the Democratic candidates aspiring to fill the shoes of retiring State Senator Nancy Skinner for the District 7 Senate seat, which covers much of Oakland and Berkeley.  Confirmed speakers include Jovanka Beckles https://jovanka4casenate.com, Jesse Arreguin https://www.jesse.vote, Sandre Swanson http://www.sandreswanson.net, Kathryn Lybarger https://www.kathrynlybargerforstatesenate2024.com/ and Dan Kalb, https://www.dankalb.net.

We believe the Wellstone Club’s greatest strength is to give voice to the progressive left in East Bay electoral politics. We have done that through our activism in local and national politics as well as our widely distributed endorsement  mailers

We need your contributions to keep those mailers coming in 2024. Please offer your generous support to ensure that voters across Alameda County continue to receive the thoughtful guidance offered by the collective wisdom of the Club’s 300 members:
