A Message from Our President

Anne Lamott said, “Tell me what breaks your heart and I will tell you your purpose.” My heart has been broken, most recently by many of the events taking place in our country. Let us remember what we stand for, what we love, and what made our hearts break in the first place. Let us use those experiences to ignite in us a common fire, one that refuses to be extinguished, to work with strength and compassion to create a world in which all people are represented, and love is the driving force behind everything we do. I invite you to join me as we actively participate in being the force of change in our community.


The Democratic Women of Kern club holds our monthly meetings on the second Saturday of every month. Our meetings are open to the public at the Rasmussen Senior Center in Bakersfield, CA.
