July Monthly Meeting!

Posted on Posted in Uncategorized

Join the Broward Young Democrats for our July Monthly Meeting at the Grind Coffee Project (599 SW 2nd Ave, Fort Lauderdale, Florida 33301) with guest speakers Laurie Schecter and Linda Anderson. Laurie and Linda are helping to change the names of three streets in Hollywood. They will update us on the situation and what we can do to help.

Happy Hour starts at 6:30 and the meeting starts at 7:30.

The city of Hollywood has three streets named after Confederate Generals, Robert E Lee, John Bell Hood and Nathan Forrest. After his time in the confederate army, Forrest went on the become the Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan. There are a group of activists pushing Hollywood to change these names back to their original names of Lousville, Maccon and Savannah. For more information, please see the link below.
