Three opportunities to act for the Common Good
1) Borrow or buy the UUA Common Read ‘Daring Democracy’; be ready to join in February discussions and workshops at UUCOV.
Some copies will be available at the Social Justice table. Buy your own for $9.09 or less at Amazon.com.
2) Join the March for Democracy in Sarasota ,January 20th. There will be speeches and music and an alternative program for those who cannot march. Sign up to travel by bus; the bus is scheduled to leave from Jacaranda near I-75 is filling up fast. We aren’t certain if a second bus can be scheduled. Buy a T-shirt if you wish.
3) Carpool with a group from Venice, Monday, January 22nd, to the state Capitol for the most exciting UU Justice Florida Legislative Days ever! Our Keynote Speaker Monday night is Desmond Meade, the founder of the Voting Restoration Amendment campaign. We will be celebrating his good work and, we hope, the SUCCESSFUL completion of the petition drive to put the amendment on the ballot in 2018 This is a wonderful opportunity to see the Florida Capitol, meet with the legislative staff, and see our legislators in action. As representatives of the UU Justice Florida Action Network, we will be lobbying our legislators Tuesday morning on bills for the common good. You will be given a packet of information about the bills and lobby training Monday night. UU Justice Florida pays for your Monday night dinner and hotel. Register and join us for this informative, intense two-day experience. We have dinner enroute on the way back and are home Tuesday night by 10:00 PM.
