Join Equality Florida for some fun at the Harvey Milk Festival! Spread the word about Equality Florida and the work we're doing, such as ensuring the passage of the Families First and Competitive Workforce Acts. We're looking for enthusiastic volunteers who care about equality and who are willing to share their enthusiasm with others. Volunteer shifts typically last for 3 hours and involve engaging passers-by and signing up new members. Volunteers get a free shirt!
Today, the Sarasota City Commission unanimously passed a domestic partner registry.
For months Equality Florida, led by board member Ken Shelin, has worked to pass a registry in Sarasota. Sarasota now joins other west coast cities that have passed registries recently, including Tampa and St. Pete.
The registry will take effect in 52 days, beginning in December 2012. We will post more information for couples who want to register as those documents become available.
Last night the City of Sarasota voted to move forward on creating a domestic partnership registry.
The unanimous vote by the Sarasota City Commission directed the City Attorney to draft language, that if passed, would make Sarasota the most recent city in Florida to adopt a domestic partnership registry. Recently, St. Petersburg, Tampa, Orlando, Orange County and Volusia County have all adopted registries.
