The first "End the Silence on Gun Violence" organizational meeting was held on April 17. Members of clubs who were able to attend the meeting were tasked with reporting back to their respective boards with the information they were given.
We will hold another organizational meeting on May 22, 2019 @ 7PM at the Cannon Funeral Home 317 W Memorial Blvd., Lakeland.
At this meeting a committee will be formed and reports from each of our respective boards will be presented. Representative from each of the other Clubs and Caucuses in Polk County are strongly encouraged to attend this meeting.
In the mean time, watch closely proposed bill, SB 7030. This is the bill that could potentially arm our teachers. The next school board meeting is April 23, 2019 @ 5PM in the School Board Auditorium, 1915 S Floral Ave, Bartow, FL 33830.
We need to let our school board members know that we strongly oppose the prospect of Polk County School Board adopting measures like this.
If you have any comments, questions, or concerns, please contact Taylor Aguilera, 863-262-8183 or Secretay@ElectPCYD.com
The Polk County Young Democrats look forward to fighting this fight with you,
