Ari Berman Book Is In (Barnes and Noble)DON'T FORGET! Ari Berman, author of will be in The Villages on June 25 to autograph books. The books a are now in stock and available for advance reading! Pick up your copy to show support for more liberal author appearances at your local book store. Countless books have been written about the civil rights movement, but far less attention has been paid to what happened after the dramatic passage of the Voting Rights Act (VRA) in 1965 and the turbulent forces it unleashed. Give Us the Ballot tells this story for the first time. Berman brings the struggle over voting rights to life through meticulous archival research, in-depth interviews with major figures in the debate, and incisive on-the-ground reporting.
"Where to Invade Next" Film Draws Large CrowdVILLAGERS ARE SURPRISED THAT EFFECTIVE GOVERNMENTS IN MANY OTHER COUNTRIES ARE BASED ON AMERICAN IDEALS A crowd of more than 80 Villagers converged at Colony Cottage for the Sunday Forum on June 12th to watch Where To Invade Next - the expansive, rib-tickling, and subversive comedy by Michael Moore, which asks “How come everyone else is living the American Dream except us?” Sunday Forum is sponsored by the Villages Democratic Club, and is open to all Villagers. The message of the movie is that all of the good ideas that other nations embrace are actually found in American initiatives, many of which were written into the Constitution by our own Founding Fathers. To arrange for a showing of the movie for your group, email HeatherRab@comcast.

  • The Villages is promoted as a Republican stronghold. Yet 30% of the registered voters in The Villages are Democrats. Put a different way, there are upwards of 18,000!!! registered Democrats residing in the Villages. With another 16% registered Independents that means there are almost 50% potential Democratic voters in 2016.
  • Our Democratic Club has almost 1,300  members of these groups and is one of the largest and most active clubs in the state of Florida.  Let’s continue growing our membership. Try to bring a neighbor or resident friend to the meeting and help them see that they are NOT ALONE.
