6pm – Dinner curtesy of our Latino Community partners
6:30- Open Mic – welcome to organizing groups

The Latino community would like to attend the first part of your meeting to personally thank the Democrats during these trying times.
We would like to donate a full hot Latin American dinner for 120-150 people.
All the donations will go to the 32nd and we may collect more money this way than with raffles.
This is how Cesar Chavez funded his movement
We can start serving dinner at 6:00.
I would also like 5 mins to address the collective.
If this works, we can do it every month. It is a good fundraiser and great for getting to know us better.
