July 24th Community Political Forum Seeks to Educate and Engage

Posted on Updated on

Women of Action is collaborating with Newtown’s Faith Based Leaders to present a Community Political Forum on Thursday, July 24th, 6:00 p.m., at Bethlehem Bible Church, 1680 18th Street in Sarasota.  The Forum is the first in  a series that provides  an opportunity for members of the community to learn and share important information, meet the candidates, and discuss the issues that are important during the upcoming  mid-term elections.  During the series of forums, anticipate meeting candidates running for local seats on the Sarasota County Commission, Charter Review Board, and Sarasota School Board as well as representatives from Federal and State campaigns including the gubernatorial race.

The July 24th Forum will feature candidates running for Sarasota County School Board seats in Districts 1,4, and 5.

Women of Action is a non-partisan coalition with a mission to educate, inform, and engage the community in the political process via the vote. Recognition of the 50th Year Anniversary of the 1964 Civil Rights Act (July 2, 1964) shines a light on the continuing battle to end voter suppression and discrimination at the polls. Let’s support Women of Action and our Faith Based Leaders as they work to educate the community and ensure that we are ready to vote.

What a great way to empower Newtown  during this Centennial year by increasing our knowledge of the political process. Let’s learn together.  Pass the information and bring a friend to this special event.
