Rep. Darren Soto and our Shero Rep.Lois Frankel at Orlando Women's Town Hall, joined by our NOW members on June 8.
The NOW Conference in Tampa was great!!
We had a 2 person play on Granny D (in her 90's), who walked 3200 miles across America for Campaign Finance Reform. We plan to bring this performance to Orlando in October. Tickets will be $5. What an amazing story.
Our Senator Bill Nelson presented a copy of the Congressional Record announcing the replacement of a Florida Confederate Officer in the Capitol's Statutory Hall by a statue of Mary McCleod Bethune. The presentation was made to Ersula Knox-Odom, the Florida actress who reenacts the life of Ms. Bethune, whose parents were freed slaves. As a free Black woman, Dr. Bethune founded Florida's Bethune-Cookman University so African-Americans could receive a first class education. Ms. Odom was extraordinary in her portrayal. We will try to book her for an event as well.
