Happy 2017, let us be optimistic and determined to make positive change even in the face of hostile circumstances.
This week a link to “we need diverse books.org” has been added to the Books and Diverse Media page. It appears to focus on elementary and teen age groups and would be a good resource for teachers or parents. I particularly recommend their “Resources> Where to find diverse books” tab.
January 10th (this Tuesday) there will be a hearing in the Florida State Senate for State Bill 140, which will allow open and concealed carry on college campuses, as well as open carry in K-12 schools, local government meetings, and airports.
Please sign the petition against SB 140 here: keepgunsoffcampus.org
Sign up here to attend the hearing on January 10th (2:00 p.m.) in Senate Office Building, Room 110
