Cancelled! #Votes4All: The Power to Create a More Perfect Democracy
Inspired by the role of voting in the Ocoee Massacre, join us for the upcoming community dialogues #Votes4All: The Power To Create a More Perfect Democracy. These workshops seek to illuminate the history of voter suppression in Central Florida as it relates to gender and race. On the centennial of women’s suffrage and the massacre in Ocoee, we aim to acknowledge our difficult history and move toward reconciliation. #Votes4All believes that the power to create a more perfect democracy lies in the power of the truth and, as ever, in the power of the people. Please join us at one (or all) of our workshops taking place across Central Florida this spring where we will engage with one another on matters of gender, race, and the ballot.
This event is funded in part by a Florida Humanities Community Project Grant, in partnership with the Peace and Justice Institute at Valencia College
