Volunteer to register voters at rally for common-sense gun reform
Update on March for Our Lives as of 5 p.m. March 21:
We have finally heard from the student organizers of the Parkland march and the League WILL have a voter registration table.
We’ll need two shifts of volunteers: 7 a.m. for set up and 9 a.m. until noon breakdown.
Because of expected traffic, plan to arrive between 8 to 8:30 a.m. During that time, League member Gloria Reinhardt has offered to have members park at her Coral Springs house and be shuttled to the park.
If you plan to arrive later than 9 a.m., go to the official shuttle locations listed here instead:
Wear League T-shirts or other non-partisan items if you plan to do voter registration.
Many League members will join in the march and will gather at the League table on the site in order to march together.
Other League members will be manning a water station.
Some members will attend Friday 6 p.m. orientation at Park Trails. Check your email after 9 p.m. Friday for additional details.
If you have questions, email Laura Simon email@example.com .
CRC kills Proposal 22, which would have scaled back right to privacy
Throughout the hearings of the Florida Constitutional Revision Commission, League members spoke out against Proposal 22, which would have limited the right to privacy guaranteed in the state constitution.
Those voices were heard and the proposal is now officially dead.
LWV Broward Co-President Joanne Aye thanked League members for their action: “Thank you to everyone who spoke against prop 22 at the February CRC hearing (despite being admonished not to!), wore Handmaid costumes, sent countless emails and made endless calls to the commissioners. This would not have happened without your efforts.”
In honor of Women’s History Month
League members Janie Koszoru, Carol Smith and Marge Rohrbach presented the fascinating History of Voting in Florida and the story of the Women’s Suffrage Movement at a Women’s History talk at the West Regional Library on March 22.
Inspiring women’s history month event honoring LWV member
On Wednesday March 14, League member Mary Russ-Milligan was honored in a tribute to 12 extraordinary women from the city of Lauderhill. Her professional career includes been an executive secretary, a payroll clerk and an entrepreneur. However, she is most proud of the work she has done as a community activist and organizer. Mary has a special ability to unite people from all walks of life, ethnic and cultural backgrounds. Her most recent Signature Event was September 2017, organized Broward Estates St. George Annual Peace Walk Unity Celebration
