๐Ÿ’™ Florida Voices for Progress / Broward for Progress Newsletter: October 2021๐Ÿ’™ย 

Shout out to everyone who joined us for our monthly meeting on Sunday. If you missed it, no worries. Here is a recap of what's happening at Broward for Progress/Florida Voices for Progress and how you can help build progressive power in our community:





Broward for Progress and Florida Voices for Progress are are a grassroots group committed to increasing voter registration and participation in Florida. Whether it's supporting a candidate, fighting to pass legislation, or working to change our culture, our members are committed to an inclusive and progressive future. We are a group of people who believe in the possibility of change and work to make it happen.




How do we win Florida? We the people of Florida (or any state for that matter) must hold all of our leaders accountable, do the work of advocacy, and help mobilize voters, and can win this fight!

We have several calls-to-action happening that need your advocacy:




On January 6th our nation's capitol was attacked. Some corporations spoke out about the attack on our democracy and others pledged not to fund any members of Congress that enabled or encouraged this attack on democracy.


Fast forward a few months, and now we have Chevron, Toyota, American Airlines, and General Motors starting to fund what has become known as the Insurrection Caucus.


We are calling on these corporate PACs to immediately cease all contributions to traitorous GOP lawmakers -- and recommit to putting our democracy before their partisan political interests.


Can you take 1 (one) minute to send a message?
