HUDSON — People tired of politics as usual should attend the first Unity in Action summit this Saturday, organizers say.
Some 200 people have confirmed they will participate in the nonpartisan event, according to Alex Snitker, one of the planners. Snitker is vice chairman of Libertarian Party of Florida.
Activists and concerned citizens will gather from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. at the Rotary Pavilion on the Concourse grounds on S.R. 52, about a quarter-mile west of Suncoast Parkway.
This summit is open to the public for the entrance fee of one can of food per person to be donated to a local shelter, co-organizer Richard Albrecht wrote in a press release. More information and registration instructions are posted at www.floridaunityinaction.com.
Too often people prattle on and on about problems without focusing on possible solutions, Snitker observed. The summit features panelists from more than 20 single-issue organizations, so the event could borrow techniques similar to speed dating.
Albrecht, an activist from Zephyrhills, remarked that the “cost of doing nothing about major issues which we are currently facing is far too high and we must take action now.”
The summit will be an educational event to “inform the public about major issues affecting the community and how we can create a change,” Albrecht said. “This activity is not about politics, but an opportunity to network with like minded people to learn how to get involved in today’s issues.”
Morning speakers will represent Oathkeepers, Superbrochure, Fully Informed Jury Association, Florida Parents Against Common Core and Liberty First Network.
Following presentations, the spectators will break up into four, small groups to focus on specific issues.
The next session will feature speakers from Florida 10th Amendment Center, Floridians Against REAL ID, Ban the Cams, Liberty Empowerment Institute and Florida Cannabis Action Network.
The afternoon slate continues with representatives from SWF Alliance, The Global Dispatch, Agenders, Florida Stop Common Core Coalition, Personhood Florida, Save America Foundation, PANDAA. Campaign for Liberty and Project Vote Count.
Groups or organizations that focus on issues in Florida can contact Snitker at (727) 424-9530.
