January Regular Meeting

Comrades!

It's the first meeting of the new year and we have a range of issues to debate and discuss. Please join us on Wednesday Jan 30th from 6:30-8:00pm EST at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Brevard, 2185 Meadowlane Ave, West Melbourne, FL 32904.

  • National Updates

  • Committee Updates
  • Annual Meeting Planning (incl. Committee Elections)
  • Meeting Processes Session
  • Open Floor (Time Permitting)

Upcoming Events

  • Public Education Rally: We will be rallying not only for public education, but also to show that the labor movement is alive in Brevard. The School Board of Brevard County is quick to tout achievements, but refuses to give its teachers and support staff a living wage increase and time to best serve students. It's time that we take care of those who care for our children and our future. (Facebook Link)
