We're on the Move in Duval County and Florida

The DEC and OFA joined forces last weekend and had one of the most successful 'day of action' events ever.  The event was the brainchild of DEC member and OFA Fellow, Annette Bodie.  She was expertly supported by long-serving DEC volunteers and OFA Neighborhood Team Captains, Ingrid Fluellen and Pat Turrentine (all three of District 1).  Nearly 40 volunteers made over 1050 phone calls and registered new voters on Saturday, July 14. Phone-banking was done out of DEC HQs on Beach Blvd and voter registration was held at the University Park Branch library in Arlington.

Thanks to these ladies, the Party is energized, fired up and ready to win!

With the FDP's roadmap to victory in place, Duval County and FL State Democrats are ready for greatness!

Are you In?

Good News for Students Studying Agriculture, Agra-business and the Natural Sciences

Obama Administration makes another significant investment in our country's competitiveness in the natural sciences and agra-business arenas.  Through increased partnerships with key federal programs, historically Black, land-grant colleges will expand the number of graduates who go on to contribute to our country's success through their work in agricultural and science-related careers.

USDA and the EPA top the list of government entities that will increase internships, practicums and special project partnership opportunities with undergraduate and graduate students enrolled at our leading historicially Black land-grant colleges and universities.  Although these schools are predominately populated with Black students, whites and other minority students regularly enroll in and graduate from these fine institutions.

Lead administrators at the government agencies are excited about this increased and enhanced focus on working with the growing population students of color from participating colleges and universities.
