Pivoting off of elections after a successful rejection of the recall, the PB Dems are excited to be hosting two experts on sea level rise and coastal resilience for our October 7th meeting! This is a crucial issue for our region and state, so please invite other community members who want to learn more!


Meet our October Speakers:


Darbi Berry Laura Walsh



1. Darbi Berry, Director of Climate and Environmental Programs at The Nonprofit Institute at USD & Program Manager, San Diego Regional Climate Collaborative, will dive into their organizations' work in coordinating regionally to address issues such as climate mitigation and adaptation efforts.


2. Laura Walsh, Policy Coordinator at the Surfrider Foundation San Diego County, will speak about Surfrider and their wide array of work helping to craft and advocate for policy to preserve our natural coastlines and protect our water, beaches, and ocean.

3. Doug Case, Political Affairs Director for CA Senate President Pro Tempore Tony Atkins (and longtime club member), will also give a targeted update on where current bills related to sea level rise stand up in Sacramento.


We will also be discussing an upcoming learning and action opportunity framed around our beaches here in D2. Please attend to learn more, as it will involve some outdoor activities with your fellow PB Dems!


Lastly, great work to all of our members who put in months of hard work to oppose the recall! This will help us build momentum going into 2022, and in continuing to push our elected representatives to enact meaningful progress on the state's most important issues!


As always, please reach out to us with any questions or if you know of any other ways to get involved!
