Where do we go from here?

Santa Monica, California
Educating young (and young at heart) voters and activists on how to best make their political voices and actions heard, both at and beyond the ballot box, will be the focus of the Americans for Democratic Action of Southern California’s Annual Garden Party this year. You are invited to the party which will be filled with stimulating speakers, live music, and refreshments.
Jan Goodman, longtime board member of ADA, has said “The Garden Party will be hot on the heels of the Democratic Convention. Bernie has planted many progressive seeds, we plan to nurture those seeds, and not let them “die on the vine”, as has happened too often in the past!”
Political Comedian Rick Overton will appear, as well as Historian Harvey Wasserman, who declared “The only votes that will really count in the 2016 elections may be those manipulated by partisan computer hackers and the corporate rich that hire them” in his latest book The Strip and Flip Selection of 2016: Five Jim Crows and Electronic Election Theft which was published earlier this year. Jackie Goldberg, who is one of the first four gay legislators in California—now featured in the new film POLITICAL ANIMALS, will talk about grass roots political organizing and SPAXTON, the popular indie rock band led by front man and songwriter Cameron Robinson will be playing a rare acoustic set, blending cool guitars and smooth vocals.
The Billionaires are also expected to show up to protest encouraging people be involved to band together to change society. Additional guest speakers are also expected.
