At the local level, we encourage our community to unite in common cause and educate others about important social and political issues.

Feel the Bern SRQ was started in July, 2015, and is an active force in campaigning for Senator Bernie Sanders with voter registration, social media, canvassing and public events.
“The Sarasota region is home to many thousands of people who want to support a politician who is principled, honest, straightforward, and consistent in his policies over his career. He means what he says and holds a deep ideological belief of equality driving his political directives. We’re determined that Bernie Sanders will be our next president,” says Manning.
