Thank you for the invitation. Indivisible Citrus County FL is interested in working on solutions to the issues we face in Florida and elsewhere across the nation. We are currently working on Jon Ossoff's GA 6 campaign by phone banking on his behalf. One of the pressing issues we face in our tiny rural county is the need to coordinate the efforts of FL District 11 Leaders from Indivisibile, the Democratic Parties in each county, Women's March groups, League of Women Voters, Environmental groups and many other groups that have similar interests with regard to the way this country is headed under the Trump Administration. Happy to be here and hope we can join forces to Keep America Great as it's Always been. :smiley:

Hi Lynn,
It's great to see Citrus County represented.
I hope you will take time to read "A Proposal for 21st Century Florida" in the vFlorida group, share your thoughts there and please send invites to everyone you know in Florida to visit this site and ask each of them to do the same.
The vFlorida proposal is suggested as the basis of collaboration on something new but not unproven. By building awareness, and refining the idea to suit Florida, we might succeed in building ourselves a mechanism that enables coordination across the state on issues of importance to all of us.

Dave, I'm enthralled with the concept! I'm reaching out to a couple of members to see if they'd be interested in working on this. I've read the links you shared and I think it's such a fabulous idea that's worth pursuing. My problem is I've got fuzzy-brain... I can't connect the dots the way I used to, not to say I'd have been great at writing legislation either. But the heart is in sync and if I can find someone that's got the will for some serious engagement, I'll be sending them your way. IN the meantime, I'll read everything that you'll be making available; the 3 initial links are fantastic! I want more! :-)

In solidarity,

Lynn Garrison

Thank you for the invitation! I'm active with Indivisible Citrus County FL. I haven't written legislation, either, but I'm a freelancer in communications (mainly writing, editing, and transcribing). Look forward to seeing what we can do here.

Welcome, Elissa! Communications experts are exactly what we need now. Please use your talents to spread this idea. Invite people here, urge them to join and to bring others with them. As we grow we can move forward.
