* 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

*JESS DURFEE HAS BEEN RE-ELECTED TO THE DNC!!! A huge THANK YOU to each of you for your help on my successful reelection campaign. In case you're curious. I tied for fifth with 200 votes (72.2%). There were 19 positions up for election. Speaker Perez came in first with 229 votes and the 19th elected person had 152 votes. I was safely in the top tier of the winners. There were a total of 81 candidates. Eighteen of the 19 incumbents ran and were reelected. Big hugs, Jess

*** FRI AUG 24 MAQUILAPOLIS, the filmmakers brought together factory workers in Tijuana and community As a continued effort against Free Trade Agreements, Af3irm San Diego in collaboration with The Centro Cultural de la Raza will be presenting the film MAQUILAPOLIS [city of factories] by Vicky Funari and Sergio De La Torre. Following the film is a panel discussion with local groups on how to continue the efforts against Free Trade Agreements (old and new) in our bordering communities. Maquilapolis Centro Cultural de la Raza Balboa Park, San Diego http://www.centroculturaldelaraza.org/ Friday, August 24, 2012 About the film "To create MAQUILAPOLIS, the filmmakers brought together factory workers in Tijuana and community organiza...tions in Mexico and the U.S. to collaborate on a film that depicts globalization through the eyes of the women who live on its leading edge. The factory workers who appear in the film have been involved in every stage of production, from planning to shooting, from scripting to outreach. This collaborative process breaks with the traditional documentary practice of dropping into a location, shooting and leaving with the "goods," which would only repeat the pattern of the maquiladora itself. The process embraces subjectivity as a value and a goal. It merges artmaking with community development to ensure that the film's voice will be truly that of its subjects." http://www.maquilapolis.com/project_eng.htm Facebook event https://www.facebook.com/#!/events/[masked]/?notif_t=plan_user_invited more details about the event coming soon :) Ambitiously yours, Catherine (Cat) Mendonça Af3irm San Diego; an anti-imperialist, transnational feminist women's organization, evolving from the organization formerly known as GABNet, and 20 years of women's organizing, activism, and struggle. af3irm.org[masked] [address removed] Keep connected http://www.facebook.com/phoenonimalcat

***THUR SEPT 27 at " Planned Parenthood's 21st ANNUAL Stand Down ACTION FUND PARTY in La Jolla" Elections don’t get more critical than this. In fact, the upcoming local and national elections are more important to the future of Planned Parenthood than any other election in recent history. This is our best opportunity to raise funds as we enter the last leg of the 2012 election year. With longtime Planned Parenthood Champion Senator Christine Kehoe as our featured speaker, we’re in for an inspirational and energizing evening. We hope you’ll join us – we need every ounce of support we can get to ensure no one will “get rid of” Planned Parenthood.... Planned Parenthood, we’re going to get rid of that.” - Mitt Romney BUY TICKETS TODAY! From local races to the battle for the presidency, support for Planned Parenthood and the reproductive health services it provides have become deciding factors. Many candidates, including Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, have publicly stated they intend to eliminate all funding for Planned Parenthood, even though most Americans believe providing reproductive health care is vital for our country’s future and should remain nonpartisan. In fact, not only has 1 in 5 American women sought reproductive health care from Planned Parenthood at least once in her lifetime, 69% of Americans oppose cutting federal government funding to Planned Parenthood. The Planned Parenthood Action Fund of the Pacific Southwest will commit its resources to elect candidates who will preserve the right to reproductive health care. To contribute to the event at the Honorary Committee level – $1,000 or more – or to purchase individual tickets online, please visit www.ppactionca.org/standnow today!

Oral arguments in Americans for Safe Access v. Drug Enforcement Administration, scheduled for October 16 at 9:30am, will be the first opportunity in decades for a federal court to hear the full scope of scientific evidence on the therapeutic applications of cannabis.
