the Florida Progressive Information Network

By       (Page 1 of 1 pages)   No comments
Imagine if 15,000 Floridians were to write, phone and visit their elected officials on a single issue over a 2-day period. Would the politicians take notice? Yes. This is how the conservative movement is able to wield its power so effectively and it is time we make sure that our voice is heard. To be effective, we need a large number of individuals who are willing to take the time to write, call and visit their elected officials on important issues and we need to coordinate the mobilization of those people in a timely fashion.
The Florida Progressive Information Network (FLPIN) intends to create exactly this sort of power for progressive issues in Florida. FLPIN is designed to help progressive organizations effectively mobilize progressive individuals so that politicians at all levels of government will be forced to pay attention to their issues.
FLPIN acts as a directory for progressive organizations across the state containing groups working locally, regionally and nationally on progressive issues and allows them to send out alerts to individual activists based on geographic and issue area criteria.
" Protecting Human/Civil/Equal Rights
" Protecting the Environment (includes a concern for animal welfare)
" Separation of Church and State
" Strengthening Public Education
" Ensuring equal and affordable access to quality healthcare
" A dedication to Peace and Justice
Because the strength of FL-PIN rests with the members of the network, registration is currently free for both individuals and groups. I encourage you to go to and join today; both as an individual and as a group and help us test out this new system.
We all know that the current political landscape is horrible for progressive ideas and issues. We can choose to complain about it, or we can choose to change it. The Florida Progressive Network is a solid proposal for progressive change, but it needs your participation to work.

Come see how FL-PIN can help you!
· Groups: Reach more people quicker.
· Individuals: Become a more effective advocate.
