For anyone who wants to be alerted by email whenever this newsletter is updated (usually weekly), please send your email address and let me know what state you live in (so I can keep track of my readership).

    http://www.hispanicunity.org/

    Founded on January 20, 1982, recognizing Broward's growing role as a haven for Spanish-speaking immigrants and refugees, a group of dedicated individuals came together to establish a non-profit organization that would put out the welcome mat for newcomers from other lands. With a keen understanding of the needs of these new residents, Hispanic Unity of Florida, Inc., began to offer English classes, job placement, emergency assistance, information and referral, and a wide range of other services designed to ease this transition in the most effective manner.

    Today, Hispanic Unity of Florida, Inc. has grown to become the largest non-profit organization in Broward County that is dedicated to serving the Hispanic population. Its services have broadened to include such critically important areas as job placement, health education, HIV/AIDS education, prevention and outreach, free tax preparation, summer camps, children's literacy, and senior activity center.

    The Weston Democratic Club is the hub in our city for the national and state Democratic Party. Our city boasts a population of 50,000, evenly divided between Democrats and Republicans. Our voting areas are divided into Precincts. Each precinct may be represented by one committee man and one committee woman. As a grassroots Democratic activist you are encouraged to become a committee man or woman in your precinct. This is a great way to communicate important information, generate excitement, and help get out the vote-all while getting to know your neighbors better!

    Our club is in the forefront of political activism in the city. We have many functions and are well known throughout the county. Our meetings have evolved as 'the place to see and be seen" in Broward County. Most candidates and elected officials visit Weston quite frequently and we have the chance to have our individual say in local, state and national politics.

    We meet the 2nd Monday of each month at 7:30 P.M in the Bonaventure Town Center Club, located at 16690 Saddle Club Road (West of Bonaventure Blvd.).
