FRRC 2017 STATE CONVENING

Join us for the Florida Rights Restoration Coalition 2017 State Convening at the Rosen Centre in Orlando, FL on July 20-22, 2017.

At the Convening, FRRC members will experience interactive participation with the Ballot Initiative Expert Panel; hands-on messaging training that will enrich our Public Education Program; and relationship building and collaborative planning with other FRRC partners from your region. Additionally, all Convening participants will leave with tangible resources to help them achieve their volunteer goals, including messaging, phone banking, canvassing and petition collection toolkits.

Champions of Change Gala & Awards Ceremony

Another exciting event will be happening during Convening weekend.  We will be hosting our 1st Annual Champions of Change Gala & Awards Ceremony, honoring FRRC’s Social Justice Champions.  The Gala will be held on the evening of July 21st, and will be hosted by Ms. Vivica A. Fox!

Hotel Accommodations

The FRRC has chosen the Rosen Centre as the official hotel of the 2017 State Convening. We have secured a discounted room rate of $109 (+tax) per night for attendees of the Convening and Champions of Change Gala.

Financial Hardship Scholarships

The FRRC is working with its coalition’s organizational partners to raise funds to sponsor those who wish to attend but are experiencing a financial hardship that prevents them from participating. Awards are dedicated to sponsoring returning citizens primarily, with secondary consideration to support non-directly impacted volunteers. Applications are due Friday, June 30th.  For questions or to apply, please contact info@floridarrc.org.
