Non-Partisan Poll Monitor Training (Socially Distanced Edition)
Suppress your cough, not the vote! We're looking for people to join us as non-partisan poll monitors for the August primary election. We're keeping it socially distanced this time, so we're looking for people to become mobile and social media poll monitors! Sign up here, and you'll be sent the Zoom link the day before the training.
The Back-To-School celebration is our largest community outreach event. We expect to serve at least 400 families! Participants will receive free school physicals, school supplies, and a grab and go barbeque lunch. School physicals are by appointment only. Please have clients call 727-321-9444 ext. 0 to schedule an appointment.
Due to growing concerns surrounding COVID 19, we will not host vendors this year. Participants will be encouraged to leave the Center once they receive their supplies and lunch. Participants should wear a face covering and practice social distancing.
JOIN US for the LWVSPA Food Politics (FKA Plant Power) Action Team.
This year, our primary goals are to educate people about the impact of their food choices on the corrupting influence of money in politics, personal health and environmental impacts; to find like-minded people and organizations, to empower individuals to take personal action, and perhaps most importantly, to have fun and eat good food. In this meeting we will develop our action plan, talk about our budget and get started!
Please RSVP to Julie Kessel at Julie.Kessel@Cigna.com so we can make sure we have enough space and healthy snacks!
You may not know this, but this is a BIG DEMOCRACY issue!
Food and politics are good ole’ buddies.
Think about this…
The healthcare and pharma lobbies want you to think that drugs and devices are the answer to your medical woes
The energy lobby wants you to think that they are for renewable sources of energy
The Agribusiness lobby wants you to think they are for sustainable farming and humane animal consumption
And they pay a LOT of special interest money to keep you thinking you have limited personal power to take control of your health, carbon footprint, and environment.
