Closing Florida's Healthcare Gap
With partners, we are focusing on increasing healthcare coverage for those who cannot afford insurance but do not qualify for Medicaid. Join us for our first meeting on Monday, January 26, from 6:00 to 8:00 pm at our local office.
Closing Healthcare Gap
The Florida League of Women Voters continues to advocate that the State of Florida accept Medicaid expansion funds from the federal government. Extending healthcare coverage to Florida's uninsured is a priority. To arrange a speaker for your group, contact our League at email@example.com. View our press release and fact sheet.
Don't miss the Hot Topic Presentation on 1/27. The Immigration Working Group stays informed on the issues, defining and promoting advocacy and educational goals each year. Through these efforts we make a difference in the lives of people who do not have the opportunity to speak for themselves. Read more about our initiatives and get involved.

Support Curbside Recycling!
The St. Petersburg City Council voted 7-0 on Nov 24 to approve the ordinance implementing a citywide recycling program and contracts to purchase trucks and recycling containers.
