On Monday, September 18, 2017 Rabbi Merrill Shapiro will be guest speaker at the First Coast Freethought Society meeting. Rabbi Shapiro will address the very real concern that Florida’s Constitution Revision Commission* will recommend deleting language from Florida’s Constitution that forbids money from the state going to religious institutions.
The First Coast Freethought Society
Time: 6:30 to 8:30pm
Location: Buckman Bridge UU Church
8447 Manresa Ave., Jacksonville, FL 32244
From the I-295 Roosevelt exit, go north to the first traffic light, Collins Rd. Turn right on Collins. Go 400 ft. The church driveway will be on your right.
*In 1968, Florida became the only state that allows for its state constitution to be revisited and changed through a regularly scheduled commission called the Constitution Revision Commission (CRC). The CRC, which meets every 20 years, is a group of 37 commissioners who examine the relevance and applicability of Florida’s Constitution to current and future needs. Are any of us safe? Not really!
