Constitution Revision Commission 

What is our most important right? Speech? Assembly? Religion? If we’re talking the Florida constitution, it’s about to be the right to privacy. Because the Constitutional Revision Commission (CRC) will likely target that provision and believe me, with a legislature like we have, we need privacy to keep them out of our bedrooms and doctors’ offices.

We think that because they’ve come after it before with the last CRC. NOW beat it back. But we need to mobilize to stop it again. Sick of fighting for the same stuff over and over? So am I. Until we can elect representatives who actually respect women, get used to it.

In Florida every twenty years, a commission is appointed to clean up the constitution. Those in power in Florida decided who is on the commission. While the meetings and such are supposed to be open to the public, by delaying the announcement of the time and venue, the powers that be hope to hold down public action. On May 17 there will be a meeting in Hillsborough. Keep your schedule open.

In SIsterhood,


Elaine Togneri
