We envision a time when our country's electoral processes will equally represent the rights and privileges of all American citizens. To that end, Suncoast Women of Action serves as a vehicle for disseminating information and increasing the ease with which citizens can engage in American government. We recognize that indeed, all politics are local. Consequently, we constantly scan the political landscape for implications on Suncoast neighborhoods. The Sarasota-Manatee area is an extraordinary place. We're blessed to call it home. Many residents and visitors have only known the area as a Slice of Paradise. Yet, others of us have roots in the soil and sea dating back 100 years. That weighty history has everything to do with the act and impact of voting. For people of color, life on the Suncoast is not always a sunny day on beautiful sandy beaches. Suncoast Women of Action is proud to play a role in keeping good things moving forward.
