This is from Dr. Pat McEwen, co-sponsor of the PersonhoodFL Constitutional Amendment:
It seems you all have been asking how to contact Tea Parties. Here is the way I did it – perhaps this will help.
First locate the tea party in your area – search the web for your local group enter – tea party your county or city. ( I entered Tea Party Brevard, my county and options showed groups in a number of towns in Brevard.) I went to the site of two cities near me and read what their site said. Hey offered an opportunity to sign up for “meet up” groups. I signed up for two cities here ( Palm Bay & Melbourne) to get e-mails for happenings. That is how I learned about the Thursday Tea Party.
Then when you know when the activity is happening call the info number or e-mail the info e-mail address to ask for opportunities to have a table. I purchased one for $25. You do not need the table but it makes you an “official” part of the tea party and they may allow you to announce your “cause” from the platform. By all means volunteer to help them set up. They probably will have lots of help but will appreciate the offer. If they ask, tell them your cause is Personhood Florida and you want to protect all persons old young and in between. ( They don’t like the new health care bill so they like causes that will protect people.)
Then go – arrive early to work the crowd before. Start near the platform and work back. They will not mind you asking them to sign because they are probably bored waiting for things to start. The thing we have in common with these folks is the health care issue. Personhood protects the unborn and the aged. Many of them are afraid of the health care reform and what it will do to their service. Comment on any signs they have- be friendly! Have a great time. Work the crowd after the speakers. Have fun.
There will be many of these sorts of events all year so check your e-mails for info from the “meet up” group so you know when and where they are.
I also mentioned the gun shows. Lots of people – not all pro life but many you can ask and almost all are friendly. The management who put on these shows are almost universally willing to let candidates and “causes” stand at the door and petition. Search for Florida Gun shows on web call the info number and just ask permission as a courtesy –Tell them who you are ( Personhood Florida) and that you are petitioning – THEY WILL SAY YES! Be friendly – have fun!
Serving the Lord by protecting His children, by love and by law.
Pat McEwen, Personhood Florida
The LORD bless you, and keep you;
The LORD make His face shine on you,
And be gracious to you;
The LORD lift up His countenance on you,
And give you peace. Numbers 6:24-26
From Brenda Mac:
My sign is going to say “No Taxation for Abortion”
and “Pro-LIFE petition” on the back
For those wondering what to say:
Basically you say: Would you like to sign a Pro-life petition?
As they come forward I ask them, Are you a Florida registered voter?
If they say YES I say: This is a Constitution Amendment petition that will define the pre-born, the elderly and the disabled as persons so they have the right to life.
Usually I am not able to say more than that because there are other people to get signatures from! But I always have the “Volunteer Form” on a separate clipboard so if they have extra questions or act interested I can “put them on our email list”. This way I can establish a relationship with them later and still keep getting signatures.
Volunteer form is on the “get Involved” page
If they say “No” I ask them to go to PersonhoodUSA.com and find their state because we are in 41 states!!!! Glory to God Almighty!!!!! 😉
Have fun with it! Glory to God for His Mercy and Grace! Go in prayed up and realize that groups are trying to infiltrate the parties and make them look bad. Be “wise as serpents and innocent as doves.” Go looking American, clean and patriotic, bring your video cameras and use them to document how friendly, orderly and fun we are! Be part of making His Story.
For the generation yet to be born,

“…..we will tell the next generation about the glorious deeds of the Lord,.…so the next generation might know them even the children not yet born- and they in turn will teach their own children. So each generation should set its hope anew on God, not forgetting his glorious miracles and obeying his commands.”
Psalm 78: 4, 6–7
