Florida Efforts

Thank you for showing interest in Marsy’s Law for Florida. As Florida’s State Director, I am honored to be a part of the coalition of victims, advocates, and volunteers who are determined to see the approval of an amendment to the Florida Constitution that ensures equal rights for victims of crime.

We are committed to working with the Florida Constitution Revision Commission members, legislators, law enforcement, advocates and, most importantly, victims of crimes to see Marsy’s Law put on the ballot in November 2018. We are grateful to Pasco Sheriff Chris Nocco for sponsoring Marsy’s Law and for his tireless advocacy for crime victims’ rights. We also deeply appreciate the Florida Sheriffs Association for their public endorsement of Marsy’s Law for Florida.

Our grassroots campaign efforts to pass Marsy’s Law in Florida are underway. And our efforts start and end with you. We are working with your neighbors and friends – and in some cases your loved ones – who have been victims of crime.

Please join the many civic leaders, advocacy organizations, law enforcement, and legal experts, along with local elected officials and state lawmakers who have endorsed Marsy’s Law for Florida. These pillars of our community stand united on behalf of innocent victims of crime and we thank them for their steadfast support and unwavering dedication to our cause.

On a personal note, I want to ask you to join in our effort – lend your support, give of your time, or share your story. When it comes to equal rights for victims of crime, every voice makes a difference. As the saying goes, “If you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can move mountains.”

Thank you for supporting victims of violent crime in the aftermath of their tragedies. I hope you’ll get involved with our efforts!

 

Thank you,

Greg Ungru
