Ok, so none of us like driving in the dark and being out late during the week so we’re changing it up! Besides, the holidays are coming and things get crazy. Come and relax with us for a couple hours to talk about where we go next. We’ll have light refreshments and free flowing conversation among friends old and new.  Our meetings are open to the public and new members are always welcome.

SO WHAT’S HAPPENING WITH AMENDMENT 4 AND WHAT YOU CAN DO

This article addresses the question about actions County SOE‘s must take to implement provisions in SB7066 that limit the restoration of Voting rights to returning citizens.

The effective date of this bill was over one year ago and the FL Secretary of State is still struggling with how to gather court data on felony convictions and payments of fines and restitution.

A State court has already expressed its reservations and may overturn this law.

According to Senator Bradley, the Legislature may be forced to address this issue again in 2020. It’s currently blocked by a judge but…

HB6007 has already been filed to remove language requiring full payment of certain fines & fees.  A companion bill in the Senate is needed.

SO, CALL SENATOR HUTSON AND TELL HIM HONOR THE WILL OF THE VOTERS ANDFILE A COMPANION BILL.
SENATOR HUTSON: 386-446-7610

UUJF Legislative Days

Registration is now open for Unitarian Universalist  Justice Florida Legislative Days January 27-28, 2020. 

CONSIDER JOINING THE UU CONTINGENT LIKE INDIVISIBLE DID LAST YEAR IN TALLAHASSEE TO TALK TO OUR STATE LEGISLATORS!

YOU WILL MEET GREAT PEOPLE, LEARN A LOT AND 
MAKE A DIFFERENCE! 

UUJF invites all UUs and friends to participate in this important annual event.

This is your opportunity to visit our state capitol, have dinner at the UU Church of Tallahassee, and learn how you can influence your state legislators to vote on issues important to us as UUs.  The next day we meet with our legislators or their staff in their offices.   

Lodging (for UU members only) is included free of charge at the local Days Inn. Several members have already attended and have found it a very interesting, informative experience.  

The antidote to despair is action – and actions such as this can be very healing.

Go to this link HERE for further info.

In the past we have carpooled and can do so again.  Contact Nana Royer: nana@nrdp.net for more information.


Blue Wave Coalition of St. Johns County
Fall NPA Outreach Canvass

St. Johns County has nearly as many non-party affiliated (NPA) voters as Democrats, but many of them are left-leaning. Join us as we reach out to left-leaning NPAs and offer them the opportunity to change parties so they can vote in the March Presidential Preference Primary!  As a canvasser, you will be paired with another person and visit just 20 homes of targeted voters. All training and materials will be provided, along with snacks and refreshments. 

We will use a strategy that will help us first identify whether the voter is a Trump supporter. If they are not, we’ll remind them that Florida is a closed primary state and if they would like to help Democrats pick someone to oppose him, they need to register as a DEM.  We will have voter registration forms on hand to facilitate party changes.

We are likely to have some pretty interesting conversations! Let’s have fun experimenting with this strategy — Blue Tsunami’s all around for returning canvassers! 

Date: 10/26/2019 (Sat.)
Time: 9:00am – 12:00pm EDT
Location: 143 Appaloosa Avenue, St Augustine FL 32095
