We hope to have some silent auction items available for you!
We will also be collecting non-perishable food items for the Fresno EOC’s LGBTQ+ Resource Center downtown as well as hygiene products (shampoo, conditioner, soap, brushes, toothpaste, toothbrushes, deodorant, lotion, feminine products, etc).
Everyone is invited to attend this free event and kick off the holiday season with us.
We hope you can attend this free event and enjoy the company of other like-minded Democrats. Whether you can make it or not, Fresno Stonewall Democrats appreciates your support and wish you a fabulous holiday season and all the best in 2024.
NEXT GENERAL MEETING: JANUARY 9, 2024
In January the club will meet to consider and vote on candidate endorsements for the upcoming election cycle. Our endorsements serve as a Voting Guide for many of the club’s members and followers who might be undecided on some positions. If you’re a paid member you are encouraged to attend this meeting to participate in the decision making process. If you are not a paid member you may join the membership to participate as long as you do so by December 12 (new members must wait 28 days before they are eligible to vote in club matters).
Please join us at our November meeting to hear D’Aungillique Jackson, Fresno State Graduate, Bulldog Pride Fund Scholar, and first LGBTQIA+ Student Body President. Earlier this year she was invited to The 2nd Pride Reception at The White House by Vice President Kamala Harris. D’Aungillique also led the Black Lives Matter Protest in Fresno in 2020, one of the city’s largest and most peaceful demonstrations; she was the youngest member of Fresno’s Commission on Police Reform; and she was President of the Fresno State chapter of the NAACP.
As a recent Fresno State graduate, D’Aungillique earned her B.A. in Sociology in the Fall of 2022. She is a people activator and mobilizer. Though she is not native to Fresno, D’Aungillique’s lived experiences as a Black American woman, a military kid, and an LGBTQIA+ youth have ignited within her a passion to advocate for equity and transformative justice wherever she goes.
Her most recent accomplishments include being an invited guest of Vice President Kamala Harris at her “2023 Pride Reception” for esteemed LGBTQ+ organizers, becoming a member of the Central Valley’s “40 under 40” Class of 2023, serving as the 2021-2022 Fresno State Student Body President, Becoming a Bulldog Pride Fund Scholar (2021 – 2022), receiving the 2020 John D. Welty Award for Community Excellence in Community Service, serving as Faith in the Valley’s Community Justice Fellow, serving as the youngest commissioner on Fresno’s Commission for Police Reform, and leading Fresno’s largest, most peaceful protest—the city of Fresno’s Black Lives Matter protest on May 31st, 2020. Above all, D’Aungillique Jackson is most proud to be a recharting member of the Fresno State NAACP college chapter, the 2019-2021 Chapter President, and the current campus advisor for this organization.
