Petition Push for Second Chances

Help put the Voting Restoration Amendment on Florida's November, 2018 ballot!

This action builds on last weekend's petition canvas in which we visited 217 homes and distributed 505 petitions. We'll do it again, visiting homes of registered voters and leaving an envelope addressed to FFAFD in Clearwater with petitions for every voter at the address. As explanation we'll include two info-slips: "Debt is Paid" and "End Lifetime Ban".

We'll talk to everyone we see but the plan is to move right along with distribution. This is an easy activity, you just have to like to walk. :-)

We'll have 10-15 minutes of orientation and then set out. If you can't make it until later, no problem, just call/text to find us. (Personally, I expect to be active beyond 12:30 p.m.) Please RSVP so that I have an idea of materials to prepare.

DIY? Want to conduct a similar event where you live? Contact me to see what's involved and I'll help you build lists of registered voters to visit.  Assembling the packets of material takes some time, but maybe you know of volunteers who like to do that and others who like the outreach part.  Even to the point where someone (a congregation member?) takes just five packets to deliver to people in their area.

It costs about $0.04/packet, assuming you can obtain petitions for free from a hub. I can acquire/send you materials (at cost plus shipping) if you are interested.

Directions: From I-95, take Exit 52 and head east on Atlantic Ave. about 0.7 mi.  Turn north on NW 1st Ave. and go two blocks.  Parking lot is at the SW corner of NW 2nd St and NW 1st Ave.
