The Progressive Club of the Islands will hold its virtual monthly meeting on Dec. 17 at 4 p.m.

The guest speaker will be state Rep. Anna V. Eskamani. She will discuss “What’s Next for Florida Progressives in the Legislature, at the Grassroots, and in the 2022 Elections?”

Born and raised in Orlando, Eskamani is the daughter of working-class immigrants. She was first elected to serve District 47 in the Florida House in 2018 and was overwhelmingly re-elected this year. Authentic, vocal and effective, Eskamani is a widely recognized champion of LGBTQ equality, the environment, affordable housing, increased access to healthcare and public education.

As a self-described bridge builder, she has constructed an ambitious legislative agenda, sponsoring or co-sponsoring dozens of bills aimed at making the system work for everyone. Eskamani sees her role as that of an advocate for all Floridians, and she is fearless in holding politicians of both parties accountable to those they represent. She supports civil discussion and building consensus across party lines. Her work and success have become increasingly well known and respected throughout Florida, as well as garnering national attention. The long list of her endorsees include President Barack Obama.

It is an interactive meeting with time provided for questions. To attend the meeting, email pcisancap@gmail.com to receive the Zoom link or watch live at www.facebook.com/pcisancap.

Annual dues for the Progressive Club are $30 for an individual or $60 for a couple. To renew a membership or join, mail a check payable to PCI to: PCI, P.O. Box 898, Sanibel, FL 33957.
