“Human progress is neither automatic nor inevitable … Every step toward the goal of justice requires sacrifice, suffering, and struggle; the tireless exertions and passionate concern of dedicated individuals.” —The Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
Honor Martin Luther King Jr by reading some history today and learn something you didn’t know about him.
At this Tuesday’s meeting we will be voting on officers for our executive board’s new term. After the quick election we have a couple of guest speakers to talk to us about two upcoming events (Love Letter to Fresno’s Queer West and Fresno Rainbow Pride) that the club will be sponsoring, and then we have several other items of importance that will be announced, such as the Stop The Hate Townhall that we’ll be tabling at, and our MARCH 26 Fundraiser with Lillian Faderman that we’ll need some volunteers for!
Please join us for our first meeting of the year, this Tuesday, January 10, at 5:30 pm. The club meets on the second Tuesday every month at 5:30 pm for social and hot topic discussion and then we call the meeting to order at 6:00 pm to handle club business and hear from our scheduled speakers.
Join us and our friends and special guests in celebrating the end of a long year. We’ll have some tasty food options, good drinks, and sweet desserts. Enjoy some time before the busy winter holidays and help ring in some cheer to kick it off!
We are suggesting a $20 donation to attend. If you cannot afford the donation we still want you to come. Please RSVP with the option that’s right for you.
