FRRC Day of Action 2008
Florida Rights Restoration Coalition Day of Action at the Florida Capital
The FRRC is organizing a two-part mobilization in Tallahassee in support of restoring the right to vote to hundreds of thousands of people with past felony convictions in Florida who have completed their sentences. Your presence in Tallahassee is critical to furthering our continuing progress toward comprehensive clemency reform and our goal of removing the voting ban from Florida’s Constitution.
On February 28, we seek to mobilize 40-75 citizens to Tallahassee for the February 28th Board of Executive Clemency meeting
On April 1, FRRC plans to mobilize 500-1000 individuals for a rally and related events.
We Need a Commitment from You & Your Organization
The success of this effort depends on commitments from you and your organization. We ask that you and your organization let us know how many people you or your organization can mobilize for either or both of the events on February 28 and April 1. We especially need your help mobilizing individuals for the April 1 rally.
Everyone who supports ending Florida’s civil rights ban is welcome and encouraged to attend. We extend a special invitation to those who are directly impacted by Florida’s civil rights ban. If you, or someone you know, have been affected by Florida’s voting ban, come to Tallahassee and make your voices heard! Make the decision today to support this historic event and let us know how many people you can bring to the event. For additional information please call La Rhonda Odom at 786-363-2718.
The time is always right to do what is right.
