Volunteer for Vote With Pride

It’s important for LGBTQ+ people and our allies to exercise our right to vote! San Diego Pride’s Civic Action Team will be contacting Pride’s supporters and other voters in the San Diego region by text and phone banking to ensure that everyone has the information they need to cast their ballot by mail, drop-off, or in-person. All of our text banks will be hybrid events. Our canvases and phone banks will be in person.

What Does The County Do? (video)

Earlier this summer, the Board of Supervisors approved its largest annual budget ever, directing over $8.1 Billion to programs that shape jobs, youth services, housing, immigration, policing & incarceration, and public health. The policy and budgetary decisions that Supervisors make affect our everyday lives. This is our chance to vote on who should make these important decisions. 

  • Jobs
      • The County of San Diego is among the top 5 employers in the region. It has the power to set wages and job standards.
  • Youth
      • The County manages services such as foster care, adoption, youth programs and housing.
  • Housing & Land Use
      • The County manages housing assistance such as Section 8 vouchers, and certain affordable housing projects. The County also manages maintenance of certain parks, recreation programs, and the county library system.
  • Immigration
      • The Board of Supervisors has the power to provide programs & services to immigrants that are excluded from state and federal programs.
  • Policing & Incarceration
      • The Board of Supervisors is separate from the Sheriff and District Attorney, (which are elected positions) however, the Board of Supervisors shapes the laws and policies of the county. It also shapes the size of the sheriff’s and district attorney’s budgets.
  • Public Health
      • The Board of Supervisors manages food assistance like CalFresh, county mental health services and enrollment in Medi-Cal and CalWorks.

*NOTE: As a 501(c)(3) non-partisan nonprofit organization, San Diego Pride does not take positions on candidates.
