RECLAIMING FLORIDA’S FUTURE FOR ALL (March 21st-23rd)
Groups of citizen activists from throughout the State of Florida traveled to Tallahassee to meet with elected officials and their staff to ask for them to support and/or oppose legislation that had a direct impact on our environment.
Our objectives were to ban fracking, support solar, and protect Florida’s water. Below is the group who rode along with UPG – citizens from Miami-Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach County! Great group, and a special experience!
