The History Project

We know the struggle to protect our democracy never stops ; neither do we.

Through the years we have registered thousands of voters, worked 40 elections, sought to educate the public and successfully fought to revise and amend the state of Florida's Constitution.  The History Committee is dedicated to recording the history of these events and celebrating their outcome.
