Topic: How to talk about abortion

5-17-2018_1 5-17-2018_2

Alexa Garcia-Ditta (NARAL Communications Director) and Emily Martin (NARAL Program Director) spoke about constructive ways to discuss abortion as a personal healthcare decision that should be available and affordable. Both speakers underlined the importance of holding conversations from a place of values rather than emotions or hostility, by finding common core values — such as autonomy, fair treatment, recognizing unique circumstances, health and wellbeing — and following up with facts.

Thursday, April 19, 2018: Carol Donovan, Lillian Salerno

6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. at Sonny Bryan’s

 

Topics: Dallas County Democratic Party coordinated campaign, Texas 32nd Congressional District

Dallas County Democratic Chair Carol Donovan spoke to the club about the coordinated campaign, which starts after the primary runoff election on May 22 and will work to promote all the Democratic candidates on the general election ballot. In preparation for the kickoff, the county party has created a development council to reach out to more local supporters and a unity council to help unify the efforts of area Democratic clubs and Resistance groups.

Texas CD32 candidate Lillian Salerno addressed the vital need to win CD32—to stop the national GOP leaders from tearing down the essential programs that help Texans’ lives. Lillian mentioned the three most important local issues as being healthcare prices, access to public education, and economic justice.
