SDPA Presents

The San Diego Progressive Alliance is excited to host Mike Thaller at our next big membership meeting. Mike Thaller is the former Progressive Caucus Chair for the CA Democratic Party and he is also part of the Bernie Sanders inspired wave of grassroots revolt within the party. Mike nearly won an election for state party Controller in May. During his campaign he traveled the state talking about the insidious nature of "Dark Money" that is holding the reins of the party. Mike will share his perspective on how we can combat big money in progressive politics.

This meeting will be held at a special location Elijah's Deli - 7061 Clairemont Mesa Blvd, San Diego, California 92111 in the conference room.

This meeting will also be a big one for the SDPA because we will be considering our first endorsement! On Aug 24th the SDPA membership moved to call for a vote on an endorsement for Gayle McLaughlin for Lt. Governor. Gayle has a special relationship with the SDPA, and its is fitting that we would consider her without delay. Gayle McLaughlin is a founding mother of the Richmond Progressive Alliance, and has served the last 11 years as an inspiring progressive there. She is also making a priority of building Progressive Alliances in over 100 cities during her campaign. According to our Bylaws, we will need to make quorum in order to validate the decision, so please come to this special meeting of the San Diego Progressive Alliance!
