May Dinner Meeting

Our monthly dinner meetings give Democrats and Progressive individuals a place to talk politics. You don't need to be a policy expert just come and learn from peers, trade jokes, and hang out in an environment where it's not taboo to talk politics. We typically have a speaker each month and our programs are always FREE. There is an optional full dinner available for the nominal fee of $15 ($20 for non-members). The dinner is always cooked on site and includes appetizers, beverage, side dish, and dessert.

Speaker: 

Marty Bennett, Co-Chair and Mara Ventura, Executive Director of North Bay Jobs with Justice will present their program on a regional campaign to implement $15 an hour citywide minimum wage laws (phasing in by 2020 - three years earlier than the state) in six cities in the North Bay including Novato, Sonoma, Petaluma, Sebastopol, Santa Rosa, and Cotati. This program also involves a coalition of North Bay Jobs with Justice and The Alliance for a Just Recovery.

The proposed legislation will raise wages for approximately 25,000 workers in Santa Rosa. This program will provide an overview of the campaign, and information about how Santa Rosa residents can become involved. This is important information for all of us to understand and learn how to move this program forward.
