We are calling Democrats to urge them to vote YES for Manatee schools. Please pitch in to make calls from your home on your schedule. We'll get you all the background info and help you need.
Manatee Dems are setting up tables all over the county for National Voter Registration Day. We need all hands on deck to reach Florida Democratic Party's goal of 150,000 new registered voters statewide by the 2022 Elections! To sign up, click on the location where you would like to volunteer and select your shift(s). If the location you want is filled, please consider helping at a different location .
We are joining the October 2 march hosted by the non-partisan group, Women's Voices of SW Florida. Marches are happening all over the country this day to defend reproductive rights. Here in Manatee, four of our County Commissioners continue to push an anti-abortion ordinance in a dangerous political game, even though our county has no abortion clinics.
The march begins at Rossi Park (452 3rd Ave West) near Bradenton Riverwalk and will march for about a mile. This is a peaceful event - bring your signs and your passion for women's rights, but please be respectful.
This event is hosted by the Democratic Women's Club of Manatee. Come out to let our US Congressman Vern Buchanan know that we care about women’s choice and support our right to make our own decisions about our bodies. We need him to vote for legislation to PROTECT women’s right to terminate a pregnancy, not oppose it. This is a National ACTION and we can be a part of it locally.
Bring your own homemade signs to wave with pro-choice messages.
Meet in front of Congressman Buchanan's office:
1051 Manatee Avenue West (near the Old Courthouse park)
Saturday, October 2, 11 am
We are a diverse group of dedicated volunteers with many ways to get involved. Use this quick form to tell us your interests. We will get back to you with more info. Thank you!
Manatee County Dems join Blue Wave Manatee for canvassing. Meet at HQ for materials and to team up with a partner, canvass, then return for a recap and refreshments. For more info, contact Phyllis Myers at firstname.lastname@example.org.
