Rest in Power Jeffery Robinson

The Fresno Stonewall Democratic Club offers its sincere condolences to Juan Bustamonte and the Rainbow Pride Family for the loss of Jeffery Robinson, CEO of Fresno Rainbow Pride and Community Link. 

For over 35 years he gave his life to strengthening and growing the Fresno LGBTQI+. He was the heart and soul of the Fresno queer community, his passing is devastating, and leaves a void that will be impossible to fill. He was a powerful role model and visionary who demonstrated strength, courage and caring for all of the community. He was a supportive father figure to many who were lost and confused and a friend to all. We will miss him and continue to work to strengthen the LGBTQI+ community. Rest in Power friend!

Meeting on Tuesday, February 8th at 5:30PM

Due to the recent surge of COVID infections we will be meeting only on Zoom this month.

Redistricting: Federal, State, and Local Outlook

Do you know who your legislator will be with the redistricting? Your representative in the House of Representatives, State Senate and Assembly, Board of Supervisors, and City Council? The lines have changed and led to a lot of confusion.

Attend the February Fresno Stonewall Meeting as Michael D. Evans, current chair of the Central California Coalition for Equitable Realignment (CCCFER), which monitored the redistricting process of legislative bodies in the Central Valley, explains the process and what to expect.

There will also be local candidates in attendance looking for your support!

Be prepared to ask questions about issues that are important to you! We have confirmed:

Esmeralda Soria, Fresno City Council Member and Candidate for State Assembly District 27

Laurin Hubbard, Candidate for Congressional District 22

Join us at this meeting to learn more about these candidates, be briefed on how the redistricting has changed things, and engage with other interested club members. Be more involved in your community and the election process this year.

ACLU: Legislation Affecting LGBTQ Rights Across The Country

If you think it’s just a few bills, you’re wrong. The number of bills in consideration across the country is overwhelming. Please click the link below to read more at ACLU’s website.

Lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people in America continue to face discrimination in their daily lives. While more states every year work to pass laws to protect LGBTQ people, we continue to see state legislatures advancing bills that target transgender people, limit local protections, and allow the use of religion to discriminate.
