In Response to a Recent Article About Hakeem Brown

-- For Immediate Release --

In Response to a Recent Article About Hakeem Brown

Fairfield, CA – October 14, 2020 – “The Solano County Democratic Central Committee (SCDCC) does not condone any form of violence or abuse being perpetrated on one person by another,” said Marjorie Olson, SCDCC Chair said in reference to the Open Vallejo story that broke overnight about Vallejo Mayoral Candidate, Hakeem Brown’s instances of violence towards women.  “The revelation of this has taken us all aback and we are now working with the state party on what the next steps might be.”

Domestic violence/abuse is a tragic reality that many people face in the home and in an intimate relationship that is supposed to be loving.  On average, more than 1 in 3 women and 1 in 4 men in the US will experience rape, physical violence, and/or stalking by an intimate partner. 

If you are suffering from any form of this, the SCDCC urges you to call the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1.800.799.SAFE (7233).  You can also find confidential resources online at https://www.thehotline.org/.

SCDCC will be keeping the Vallejo and Solano County community informed.

An Open Letter to the Louis Michael Campaign Team

August 24, 2020

Dear Mr. Michael and Mr. Fernandes,

Thank you for reaching out to us. The Solano County Central Committee extends a sincere apology to you, and to your entire campaign team, family and supporters for the thoughtless comments made by a few of our members following the recent interview with the committee. These stray comments do not reflect the core values of the Democratic Party. The committee members are extremely embarrassed about this incident. We appreciate your participation in our interview and endorsement process.  Mr. Michael performed admirably throughout the interview.

The Solano County Democratic Central Committee commends Mr. Michael for stepping forward as a Democratic candidate for office during these turbulent times. Mr. Michael’s goal to reach out to all Vallejo residents, especially those who feel marginalized and excluded from the political process is exactly what is needed right now. The Solano Democratic party is striving to achieve the goals so wonderfully expressed by Mr. Michael. We want to encourage candidates with a heart for the community and who genuinely care about the future of our cities.

The California Democratic Party has standards for behavior and a commitment to providing a welcoming environment for all associated with the party. The behavior on Saturday runs counter to our standards. The Solano County Democratic Central Committee will be instituting actions to be sure an incident like this does not happen again.

We will be posting the apology publicly on our web page and social media. Please accept our apology for the misconduct of a few of our members during the interview process on Saturday.

Sincerely,


Margie Olson
Chair, Solano County Democratic Central Committee

Solano Democrats Celebrate Pride Month

###

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - May 23, 2018

PROCLAMATION
Solano Democratic Party
LGBTQ Pride Month, 2018

In recognition of LESBIAN, GAY, BISEXUAL, TRANSGENDER, QUESTIONING/QUEER PRIDE MONTH, June, 2018.

Whereas, forty-eight years ago, in June, 1969, a riot at a Manhattan gay bar, the Stonewall Inn, in retaliation to a police raid, precipitated the modern fight for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Questioning/Queer (LGBTQ) rights, and

Whereas, because of acts of courage from those who demanded justice and from those who quietly pushed for progress, our Nation has made great strides in recognizing what these brave individuals long knew to be true in their hearts – that love is love and that no person should be judged by anything but the content of their character, and

Whereas, 2015’s landmark Supreme Court decision was a historic victory for LGBT Americans, guaranteeing marriage equality in all 50 States, ensuring dignity for same-sex couples and therefore all couples, and

Whereas, for every partnership that was not previously recognized under the law and for every American who was denied their basic civil rights, this monumental ruling instilled newfound hope, affirming the belief that we are all freer when we are all treated as equals, and

Whereas, despite this extraordinary progress, LGBTQ Americans still face discrimination simply for being who they are, and there remains much work to do to extend the promise of our country to every American, and

Whereas, in memory of the 49 victims of the 2016 Pulse Nightclub massacre in Orlando it is ever more important that we continue to push for equality, protections and acceptance of LGBTQ people everywhere, and

Whereas, 2018 is the 20 th Anniversary of the LGBTQ Community coming together to show our pride in Solano County through service, and support that builds our community with two different organizations, Solano Pride and the Vallejo Gay Network, and

Whereas, during Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Questioning/Queer Pride Month, as we wave our flags of pride high and march boldly forward in parades and demonstrations, let us celebrate how far we have come and reaffirm our steadfast belief in the equal dignity of all Americans, and

Whereas, the Solano Democrats proudly stands with the LGBTQ community, and with all communities who struggle for basic rights, for acceptance, visibility, safety, acknowledgement, and equitability, in the quest for full equality under the law.

NOW, THEREFORE, be it resolved that, we the Solano Democratic Party do hereby proclaim June 2018 as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Questioning/Queer Pride Month in Solano County.
