Freedom Democrats friends and members,
The California Supreme Court today announced that it will protect and extend rights to all of its citizens. It is now Miami Dade's turn to protect all of its citizens....and we are almost there with an historic opportunity.
Your fellow Miami Dade citizens have worked hard to bring the Domestic Partner Ordinance to a final vote. It has taken over 10 years and we are FINALLY HERE. Yes, it is true, this Tuesday we have a chance, together, to extend DP benefits to all people in Miami Dade who are in a domestic partner relationship.
On May 20 -- this Tuesday at 9 am -- the course of history will change in Miami Dade as the Miami Dade Commissioners vote for, or against, the DP Orindance. Your voice and presence is needed at the meeting.
This is the FINAL vote. We need you to show up to support the Ordinance and those commissioners who are voting for the Ordinance. Those against the Ordinance have pledged to turn out in large numbers and it is up to ALL OF US to show up in support of the DP Ordinance.
Please read onward the full facts from SAVE Dade and Equality Florida. If you have ANY questions on what you can do, please call me at my office on 305-895-9466 or my cell phone 310.770.7204 until 9 pm Monday May 19. Please come, we need your support. Bring a friend and forward this mail onward to 5 friends in Miami Dade.
If you do anything in 2008 to protect your rights, and those in a domestic partner relationship, please do this one thing -- SHOW UP on May 20 at 9 am. Take the morning off and be a part of history.
We need you, those who have worked so hard to potect you need you, and those who want to visit their loved one in a hospital need you.
It is our time in Florida and, when this Ordinance passes, it will reverberate across the country as a sign that Miami Dade cares about all of its citizens.
This is OUR time, this is YOUR time, and it is one of those times that your presence is greatly needed.
