TAKE ACTION -- on key state and national issues

VOTING RESTORATION AMENDMENT: (statewide)
Florida needs 1 MILLION petitions signed by Florida voters by December 31, 2017 (to ensure 766,200 validated petitions will be approved by Supervisors of Election statewide by Feb. 1, 2018) to put this on the ballot in November, 2018.
Let's repeal Florida's lifetime ban on ex-felon voting! Florida disenfranchises over 1.5 million people.
Let's say YES to second chances!  See the Samantha Bee video to understand the issue.

to your friends OUT-OF-STATE and request that they ask people in their congregations and social circles if they have friends or relatives IN FLORIDA who can ALSO
sign the petition and mail it in.  Let's restore people's right to vote after they have paid their debt to society. Together, with the help of Floridians and concerned friends nationwide, we can do this!
