Good afternoon, everybody!
A new class of students arrives at Broward College on Monday, August 21st. We will be at both the Davie and Coconut Creek campuses from Monday, the 21st through Thursday the 24th, every day from 10 AM to 2 PM, to register students and collect rights restoration petitions . We need volunteers for both campuses, especially on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. If you have never done voter registration at Broward College at the beginning of a new semester, be prepared for a very enjoyable experience. Please let me know when you can come out and help.
We’ve had a good few days at the South Regional Courthouse in Hollywood. On Monday we registered 2 voters and collected 71 rights restoration petitions. And yesterday, we registered another 3 voters and collected 54 petitions. Many thanks to Janet Thompson, Lonnie Supnick, Rick Scrabis, Ron McCoy, and Katy Syed for doing such a great job!
Here’s what else is going on:
On Saturday, August 12th, John Ziegler’s team will be back at the West Regional Library in Plantation from 10 AM to 6 PM to register voters and collect rights restoration petitions. If you’d like to help at the Library in one of the 2-hour shifts, please contact John at 954-232-3918 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
On Monday and Wednesday, August 14th and 16th, we will be back at the South Regional Courthouse 3550 Hollywood Blvd., just west of I-95, in Hollywood. We will have all the forms we need, a table and chairs, and an overhang to protect us from the sun. We will start at 10 AM and work until 2 PM. If you’d like to just fill a 2-hour shift, just let me know the times. Please let me know when you can join us.
On Saturday, August 19th, starting at 12:30 PM, Indivisible Broward will be meeting at the Pride Center, 2040 Old Dixie Highway in Wilton Manors. State Senator Gary Farmer will be the featured speaker. Learn how to actively resist the negative onslaught of the Trump Administration.
And don’t forget to let me know which days you can help out at either Broward College campus starting on Monday, August 21st, from 10 AM until 2 PM, especially on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.
