Where: Sacramento’s Memorial Auditorium (1515 J Street) – Front Steps.
Date and Time: November 18th, 3:00 pm to 5:30 pm (speakers start at 4pm)
Speakers: We have invited Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib to speak at the rally. We have also
invited Linda Sansour and Cornell West to speak. We will update speaker information as the
date draws nearer.

What we plan to achieve: The California Democratic Party holds its state convention for 3,000 delegates at the Sacramento convention center on November 18. This is the state party’s
nominating convention where it selects candidates to run for public office at the state and federal level. This presents an opportunity for the pro-Palestinian community to get our voices
heard, express our outrage with the party’s pro-Israel position and advocate for change.
