SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA - August 26-28, 2005
National Stonewall Democrats and the San Diego Democratic Club invite you to the premier training for the LGBT community this year.
California and Arizona face anti-marriage ballot measures in 2006. While activists work towards the possibility of marriage equality in Washington and Oregon, the LGBT community in Nevada and Utah continues to battle against unrelenting anti-gay forces.
NOW IS THE TIME to come together to strategize, train and exchange ideas that will help our families secure victory at the ballot box and in state legislatures. Now is the time to register and make your plans for the 2005 Stonewall National Convention and Training.
