Bookshop Santa Cruz Political Caucus
August 18 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Join us on August 18th for our own “political caucus event,” hosted by Third County Supervisor Ryan Coonerty and cosponsored by the Democratic Women’s Club of Santa Cruz County and Santa Cruz Indivisible, as the conclusion to the 2020 Vision Bookshop Caucus. This summer, we are inviting you to read books written by the Democratic presidential candidates, including books by candidates Kamala Harris, Pete Buttigieg, Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Joe Biden, Cory Booker, Kirsten Gillibrand, Beto O’Rourke, Marianne Williamson, Amy Klobuchar, Julian Castro, Tim Ryan, John Delaney, John Hickenlooper, Andrew Yang and Mike Gravel. For each book read, you will be entered into a raffle to win special prizes. See the full book list and read more about the program here.
At our caucus on August 18th at 7:00, volunteers from the Democratic Women’s Club of Santa Cruz County will give a 2-3 minute pitch about what they learned about each candidate from their book. Once you hear about all the candidates, attendees will caucus and vote for which candidate’s book persuaded them the most. Refreshments will be provided and voter registration organizations will be there to help ensure that everyone is registered to vote in California’s primary. Take your new knowledge and transform it to action with Santa Cruz Indivisible, who will provide you with opportunities to direct your passion to elect progressive candidates for the 2020 General Election. Santa Cruz Indivisible will be focusing on the races in the Senate for AZ, SC, KY, Congressional CA21 and CA22 races, and the Presidential, and will be soliciting volunteers to assist with GOTV, candidate support efforts, and more!
The program is one part of Bookshop Santa Cruz’s year-long programming effort 2020 Vision, which uses reading recommendations, author events and community partnerships to look back on where we have been as a country, shine a light on our current affairs and look ahead to the monumental year of 2020 and beyond.
This free event will take place at Bookshop Santa Cruz. Chairs are usually set up one hour before the event.
