Wow! LiftGen members and guests were blown away by the powerful discussion of timely issues by four local women candidates of color on January 13th 2020: Andrea Cardenas - Chula Vista City Council; Marisa Calderon - CA 50; Olga Diaz - SD County Board of Supervisors, and Lawana Richmond - SDUSD School Board. A robust discussion of how each candidate will address gun violence, the goodness that migrants bring to our communities and harness their experience and knowledge as women of color to enrich their constituencies and more were appreciated and served to educate and inspire the audience in attendance. Thank you to LiftGen members Carolyn Shadle for hosting and to Deanna Niño and Elif Tinney for researching local candidates and communicating with them! Thanks to local artist Elizabeth Tobias for her "Voting is My Superpower" artwork! Don't miss our next event and mark your calendars for February 6, 2020 6:30-8:30 to hear from Jenn Budd, former Border Patrol Agent turned migrant activist! Get your tickets here: Jenn Budd tickets.
