ANNOUNCEMENTS * IMPORTANT * San Diego County Democratic Party ALERT *** VOTER ID LAW IN CALIFORNIA ? *** That's right: this week the Republican Party announced plans to pursue a voter ID initiative in our state. It's their latest attempt to win elections through voter suppression and campaign finance loopholes. They've already put Prop. 32 on the November ballot -- a deceptive move to silence the voices of workers and starve Democratic candidates of funding. A voter ID law would do further harm by making it harder for students, the elderly, and the poor to participate in our democracy. Please donate to San Diego Democrats today so we can build a stronger organization to beat back these despicable Republican tactics. Locally, our opponents are fighting to elect an anti-worker zealot as the next Mayor of San Diego. We're gearing up now for that and and other close contests throughout the county. You can help: click here to give $5, $25, or whatever you can afford. There are just over 100 days left in this race. We're raising money to open offices, equip volunteers, and distribute our official voter guide far and wide. I'm asking you to be one of 100 supporters to launch our "Battleground San Diego" campaign to turn out our voters in November. Please join our cause by making a donation today. With gratitude, Jess Durfee Chair, San Diego County Democratic Party Member, Democratic National Committee

or [address removed]______________________________***WED AUG 8 at 7:00-9:00PM (Doors open at 6:30 p.m.) ROY ZIMMERMAN CONCERT ~ ENJOY AN INVIGORATING * INSPIRING * JUST PLAIN FUN EVENING!
Roy will be in his element and so will all who come to hear him. Combining extraordinary musical talent with sharp wit and spot-on observation Roy Zimmerman offers a uniquely astute, lefty-leaning commentary on the times.
And, yes, you can find him on youtube. But, as friends who have seen Roy in person will affirm, You
Tube doesn't come close to the in-person experience. Frequenter of Occupy and rallies across America, Roy brings his energy to the cause.
Singer/song writer and satirist, Roy's original songs focus upon class warfare, creationism, same-sex marriage, guns, marijuana, abstinence, Republicans (a lot of songs about Republicans), ignorance, war and greed. 7 p.m. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.
Sponsored by the Peace Resource Center of San Diego Tickets $18 or pay what you can Purchase tickets at http://www.prcsd.org/... The Peace Resource Center www.prcsd.org[masked]
