The FairDistricts Amendments overwhelmingly approved by Florida voters have now been approved by the Florida Supreme Court and the U.S. Department of Justice. The amendments require that the legislative redistricting committee strictly adhere to "compact, contiguous" districts ending gerrymandering by political parties.

The Guttmacher Institute released the results of three new studies last week.

The studies found that two-thirds of births resulting from unintended pregnancies, more than one million births each year, are publicly funded and cost taxpayers roughly $11 billion each year.

Every $1 spent on publicly subsidized contraception saved the federal government and the states $3.4 billion in Medicaid for prenatal care, delivery and infant care.

How Do I Become an Active Progressive?

Here's a question that has been asked frequently by our members that I'd like to take a moment to answer.  "How do I become an active Progressive in the vast redness that is Brevard County?"

The first thing I'd recommend is to be sure to attend any meeting of the Space Coast Progressive Alliance, particularly First Thursdays at the Henegar Center.  Every First Thursday of the month, there's an SCPA meeting, so be sure to mark it on your personal calendars.  Ours may seem at first like a quaint social group, but there are always strong activists there and the meetings serve as a pipeline for getting organized and getting the word out about initiatives and progressive movement activities here in Brevard County.  Knowing when something is about to happen and being able to be a part of it is paramount in being able to make a difference.

The next thing really accompanies the first...
