      Coffee in Common is a monthly series co-hosted by the The St. Petersburg Alumnae Chapter of the Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. and League of Women Voters of the St. Petersburg Area. This month's topic: Media Literacy: Racism, Politics and the News

      These free and public events are for thoughtful, open-minded white women and women of color concerning the prescient issues of the day, to include: white privilege, racism, and white supremacy. This series seeks to explore the intersection of politics and race by educating audiences about history, lived experience, and facilitating important, and often uncomfortable, discussion about race.

      Coffee will be provided to participants as they learn about the monthly topic. Following the presentation, facilitators will guide discussion on the topic, its relevance in today's world, and honest conversations about the deeply-rooted effects of institutional and systemic racism in our community.

      It is through open-minded, free, and safe discussions among women and the community that we can forge forward together in the struggle with knowledge and power.

      Join us for this one-night screening of the acclaimed documentary in commemoration of the two-year anniversary of the Stoneman Douglas High School shooting.

      Filmed in the days after the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in 2018 that killed 17 people and launched a nationwide student movement, this intimate chronicle follows the students and families whose lives were forever transformed - including senior David Hogg, who recorded his class during the attack and became the face of the Never Again movement. Weaving together interviews with the victims' loved ones, vérité footage, and personal videos, AFTER PARKLAND is a moving portrait of grief and one community's crusade to turn tragedy into progress.

    • Plant Power Meeting

      February 17, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
      James B Sanderlin Family Center, 2335 22nd Ave S, St. Petersburg, FL 33712, USA

      JOIN US for the LWVSPA 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.
