Board Elections were held tonight at our first Board meeting of 2019. Last year was full of major achievements including former Board members running and getting elected to public office, working in our communities and city governments, Pride proclamations and Pride flag raising in most cities across Contra Costa County last June, our Annual Courage BBQ membership drive, building coalition and consensus and greater visibility for LGBTQ members locally, Statewide, and nationally during a time when our community at large is under attack and facing institutionalized discrimination. Join us and become a member! Next general membership meeting is February 27th (last Wednesday of every month).
2019 ADEM Elections starting this coming weekend!

Here is the link to results being counted in California and Contra Costa County:
The Lambda Democratic Club of Contra Costa County is elated with some of the results so far and we are so proud of all the LGBTQ candidates who ran and all candidates who support LGBTQ rights. Some of the local votes are still being counted so we have not made an official announcement yet.
On a national level it looks like the Blue Wave hit the House of Representatives for a majority and some Senate, House, and Governor seats are still being counted. We can see by the numbers how each vote counts!
Special Guest State Senator Ricardo Lara will receive Lambda’s Courage Award at this year’s event. Several candidates and elected officials will also be attending as Lambda’s special guests during this membership drive celebration. Let’s break bread!

Lambda Democratic Club of Contra Costa County Statement on SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh
If confirmed, Supreme Court Nominee Brett Kavanaugh will end the Court’s majority on LGBTQI rights and help undermine and take away equal rights and protection under the law that has already been deemed constitutional for LGBTQI Americans.
Make no mistake- the clock will be turned backward for LGBTQI Americans after fighting for decades to win rights and protections against discrimination.
Kavanaugh has been involved in writing opinions on many major issues recently including Religious Freedom, Immigrant rights, Voting rights, Workers’ rights, Women’s rights, and Kavanaugh also disagreed with Justice Roberts upholding the Affordable Care Act.
Catch the Blue Wave and Join the Lambda Democratic Club of Contra Costa County.
