East Bay Stonewall Democratic Club

6:00 - 8:00 PM
360 14th St, Oakland, CA 94612
Please join us for our next General Membership Meeting! After a brief meet and greet reception, we will talk about some important legislation that is currently moving in Sacramento:
Senator Scott Wiener office will provide updates on legislation authored by Senator Wiener and bills of interest to the LGBTQ community, including:
SB 179 (Gender Identity) – Bill would allow Californians to update their gender on birth certificates, driver’s licenses and identity cards without undergoing clinical treatment or getting a court order. It would also make California the first state in the country to legally recognize non-binary as a gender.
SB 219 (LGBT Seniors Long Term Call Bill of Rights) – The bill would make it unlawful for any long-term care facility to take specified actions wholly or partially on the basis of a person’s actual or perceived sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, or human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) status.
Local advocates will also discuss the pros and cons of SB 562, the single payer bill that was recently approved by the California State Senate. It should be a lively discussion!
