HELLO ROCKY RIVER DEMOCRATS!!

Please Join Us!
For the next meeting of the

Rocky River Democratic Club
Tuesday, June 28th at 7:00 PM

Via Zoom and In-Person at the Rocky River Library

Hello Rocky River Democrats! We want to share the info and RSVP link for our June meeting.

We all received the troubling news that the Supreme Court struck down the nearly 50 year old protection on reproductive rights enumerated by Roe v. Wade. The gathering storm of a having an activist Conservative judiciary has officially come to every single American. We no longer have the luxury of sitting on the sidelines and hoping for the smarter voices in the room to win out over the radical assault on our core values. Now, more than ever, we as Democrats need to organize our efforts to fight to maintain our American democracy. Your participation now could make a difference affecting all future generations. We strongly encourage everyone to attend this month’s meeting and hear from our speakers, Dave Brock and Scott DiMauro (highlighted below) as they explain what we can do and what is being done to combat the radical agendas in our legislatures and our classrooms.

FEATURED SPEAKERS

Dave Brock

Incoming Chair of the Cuyahoga County Democratic Party, elected by the Central Committee on Saturday, June 18th, will speak to his role, his visions for the future of the Party in the county, and his plans for achieving and sustaining victories for Democratic candidates in 2022 and 2024. He looks forward to speaking our group as well as taking questions from the audience.

Scott DiMauro
President of the Ohio Education Association (OEA)

Scott was elected President of the OEA in 2019 after having served as vice president for six years. Over his 30-year career as an educator, Scott has worked to provide students the critical thinking and decision-making skills they need to be successful citizens in our democratic society. He has likewise advocated for students, educators and strong public schools at all levels of his union. Scott’s priorities as president include strengthening local affiliates, enhancing professional supports for members, and elevating the voice of educators in public policy issues to ensure all students are given access to a high-quality education that inspires their creativity, imagination, and desire to learn. Scott will be speaking to the legislative push to “harden schools” as well as installing restrictive controls on school curriculum, and how OEA plans to combat these efforts. He looks forward to speaking our group as well as taking questions from the audience.
