Spiritual Social Laws / Be An Informed Voter
September 6, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pmPlease RSVP firstname.lastname@example.org
DID YOU KNOW….. That Spiritual Social Laws say that God created humans to live in society, where they are destined to evolve through helping & sharing with each other, benefiting from their many different strengths and learning to love one another. A life of isolation with no contribution to society is one in which no progress is made….So Let’s have fun while we learn about our State’s Constitutional Amendments!
Once every 20 years, Florida’s Constitution provides for the creation of a 37-member revision commission for the purpose of reviewing Florida’s Constitution & proposing changes for voter consideration. The Constitution Revision Commission (CRC) meets for approximately one year, traveling the State of Florida, identifying issues, performing research & possibly recommending changes to the Constitution. Any amendments proposed by the CRC would be placed on the 2018 General Election ballot.
Please RSVP to email@example.com
COME LEARN & ASK QUESTIONS ABOUT THE PROPOSED FLORIDA AMENDMENTS on THURSDAY, SEPT. 6TH.
