“We’ve marched, we’ve fired off emails and have put our elected officials on speed dial. Now it’s time to make real change by electing more women to Florida office.” says the event announcement “The path to victory starts at home, by building the bench of progressive women who can shape our state. In the past few months, hundreds of pro-choice women have approached Ruth’s List to take the next step, and join the 62 women Ruth’s List FL has helped elect since 2008.”
