by Women’s March on Florida
The Women’s March on Florida, Gainesville Chapter is organizing for upcoming challenges to protect our civil liberties. During their first few months, they have created a sustainable grassroots organization with a foundation to support resistance efforts and to ensure that the voice of progressive Americans who care about our environment, civil rights and equality are heard.
WMFL is committed to supporting the causes you care about. Join the 400 volunteers as they work collaboratively with the local government officials and other grassroots organizations. Get involved by coming to one of their events, email them at firstname.lastname@example.org, and participate and like them on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/wmflgnv.
