PVP Democrats Monthly Meeting

January 15, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 4:30 pm

On January 15, 2017 the Palos Verdes Democrats will meet at 2:30 pm in the community room of the Peninsula Center Library for our first general membership meeting of the New Year.

The Palos Verdes Democrats will hear Tony Hale, a former chair of the state party’s Environmental Caucus, put forward the argument that if the Democratic Party is to be the party of science, we need to examine the issues related to genetically modified foods, and understand what the scientific evidence is about GMO’s.

The speaker provided the following bio:

“Tony Hale is a former Palos Verdes Peninsula Democratic Club president and a former chair of the state party’s Environmental Caucus. A lifelong student of science, Tony also serves as chair of the Resolutions Committee of the Los Angeles County Democratic Party. As Resolutions chair, Tony has helped write many of the Party’s positions on science and environmental issues. His respect for the scientific method has lead him to become a science communicator and a defender of scientific consensus against pseudoscience and the misuse of scientific concepts in public debate. Tony will put forward the argument that if the Democratic Party is to be the party of science, we need to examine the issues related to genetically modified foods, and understand what the scientific evidence says about GMO’s.”

Many of you will want to come and challenge the speaker on his controversial take on GMO’s. We hope you will do so.

Kanji Sahara a long-time local democrat, will also discuss how the Democratic Clubs in the South Bay can join forces to actively resist anticipated actions of the Trump administration that would be contrary to the values of Democrats.  For a preview of their thoughts, click here.
Please join us on the 15th.  We encourage you to come at 2:00 pm for our social time where we enjoy delicious homemade goodies and conversation with like-minded Democrats, something we don’t get enough of here on the Hill.
