Speakers Bureau Chair
Audiences for the League's recent Speakers' Bureau presentations about the League, voting and Women's history ("herstory") have numbered in the hundreds. They've ranged in ages from nine year old schoolchildren to ninety-plus year old residents at assisted-living facilities--and every age in-between and type of group imaginable. We've spoken at libraries, churches, synagogues, schools, neighborhood associations, women's club luncheons, political groups and university classes.
The almost universal response has been gratifying and heartwarming. We sincerely believe that our calls to action will be heeded by many people who otherwise merely would have complained, and that those who listened felt their time was well spent learning new information.
We have adhered to the League stipulations of advocating for issues, not for political parties or candidates. Redistricting and ethical government has continued to be a major concern, as has health care, education and the environment. Fighting against the proposed TABOR amendment (The Taxpayer Bill of Rights) will be consuming even more time and energy. The League is advocating against ALL of the proposed amendments to the Florida Constitution--"Just Say NO!!"
As the election cycle revs up, the Speakers Bureau is ready to respond to as many requests for presentations as possible. Please contact Adrienne Katz Katz, firstname.lastname@example.org, phone 407-297-0958 to schedule a League speaker.
