PVP Democrats Monthly Meeting
September 15, 2019 @ 2:30 pm - 4:30 pm
The PV Democrats will he holding our monthly meeting on Sunday, September 15 in the Community Room at the Peninsula Center Library. Please come early–we gather at 2 pm to socialize with like-minded democrats.
Making a Difference is the theme for our September 15th meeting, where we will hear from LAANE (Los Angeles Alliance for a New Economy), Sister District South Bay LA, and SBCCOG (South Bay Cities Council of Governments).
LAANE representative, Amardeep Gill, will brief us on their Our People Our Port campaign to create good jobs, healthy communities, and a clean environment at the Ports of LA and Long Beach. Since the passage of the Clean Truck Program, the Our People Our Port coalition contnues to ensure that truck drivers are provided good jobs and that the industry’s effects on local communities are mitigated. Author and past labor reporter for the New York Times, Steven Greenhouse, says LAANE “brought unions, environmentalists and community groups together to develop a plan that has greatly reduced air pollution at the nation’s largest seaport, the combined Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach. Not only did this effort bring in a new generation of trucks that polluted far less, but it raised port truck drivers’ pay and helped unionize hundreds of port drivers.”
Winning elections and turning states blue is the passion of Gary Boston, representative of Sister District South Bay-LA and former PV Dems 2nd VP. Learn how you can join other volunteers to flip states blue.
