Can We Make This Happen?
W* writes: “I would like to charter a bus to go to Tallahassee for women to testify before the committees on 3 remaining alimony/family bills.
“A bus holds 55-57 people. No driving, No hotels rooms etc. If you work the day before you can sleep on the bus. It would be history-making and unheard of for 57 people to show up and testify for ANY bill.
“These bills are being fast-tracked and we don’t have the luxury of waiting until January. We have to kill it in committee. If you are unfamiliar with the way things work in the legislature you may think that we have time. WE DON’T.
“I can’t afford to charter a bus by myself or I would, but if 57 women went, it would be less than $100 each, and you could even sponsor someone if you are not able to come.
“We have to put our money and energy where our mouths are. If WE cannot sacrifice for this issue, then who will? For one day, $100 is a small sacrifice. The cost of each person will probably be less (approxmately $80) but I left wiggle room.
“I am researching and contacting charter bus companies now. I am working out the details now. CAN WE MAKE THIS HAPPEN? IT IS NOT THAT COMPLICATED.”
Several Moms in Mississippi, Georgia, Florida and the surrounding areas commented that they would like to go.
