GUEST SPEAKER: Hugo Morrison
Many of you know Hugo through Fresno’s Democratic Central Committee and other community projects. After the Endorsement Ballots have been turned in Tuesday night Hugo will speak to us about voter education and engagement. His insight and efforts in this area are important in understanding today’s voters and what November might be like.
 
All Democrats are welcome to attend meetings regardless of membership status but we hope you’ll decide to join (only $20 per year) and participate in club meetings and activities, our endorsement process, and election of officers this upcoming January. New members must wait 28 days before they are eligible to vote on ANY club business.

ABOUT PETER ROBERTSON:
Dr. Peter Robertson (he/his/him) has been referred to as a “change maker” on behalf of Fresno’s disenfranchised and marginalized communities. For the past 36 years, he has been passionate about serving others and strives to lead by example.

A four-time graduate of Fresno State (BA, MA, MBA, and EdD), the genesis for his activism was fostered as an undergraduate student. He was a founding member of United Student Pride, a co-founder of the Fresno Reel Pride Film Festival, and named a grand marshal for the inaugural Fresno Rainbow Pride Parade. In 2023, he was presented the Harvey Milk Award: Champion of Change by the City of Fresno. Recently, he was appointed the co-chair of the President’s LGBTQ2+ and Allies Advisory Council at Fresno State.

As a Fresno State staff member, he has continued to advocate for creating a powerful sense of belonging while maintaining respect for students, alumnx and allies, as well as faculty and staff. As a volunteer, he established the Bulldog Pride Fund, and started the Rainbow Alumnx and Allies Club.

Robertson is the director of alumni connections with the Fresno State Alumni Association, where he has worked for, donated to, and volunteered with the past 21 years.
