Florida Forever Advocacy:  A Game Plan for 2018
Wednesday, June 21, 2017, Noon to 1:30 p.m., Eastern Time

In 2014 an overwhelming 75% of Florida voters supported the passage of Amendment 1 which allocated a third of the tax on real estate documents to be used for purchasing and restoring conservation lands through programs like Florida Forever.  Despite this clarion call from concerned citizens, Florida’s legislators have consistently refused to fund this program in the intended manner, instead siphoning off funds to pay for existing environmental programs previously paid for out of general revenue, and falling far short of the intended allocation for the purchase of conservation lands.

Leading organizations in Florida’s environmental community are developing a game plan to advocate for Florida Forever funding in the manner intended in 2014.  Speakers at this webinar will share strategies for Florida’s environmental groups and concerned citizens to support full funding for Florida Forever in 2018.  Join us to find out how you can be part of the team.

This event has been approved for 1.5 AICP CM (#9125755) for planners and 1.5 contact hours for Florida Environmental Health Professionals.  1000 Friends has applied for credits for Florida attorneys and Certified Floodplain Managers but cannot guarantee these credits will be approved.
