Viewpoint with Seeta and Friends on Memorial Day, Monday May 30th. First we want to wish all of you a very cherished day filled with memories of our fallen soldiers, those that currently serve, and your own history and legacy of how this great nation remains – and who made it all possible.
We have 2 segments on the show tomorrow, Peggy Choudhry and Desmond Meade, two dynamic individuals who are changing our communities for the better.
Peggy is a graduate of Rhode Island College. After college, she took a position with the US Department of Homeland Security as an Immigration Officer and within a short time was promoted to Adjudications Officer with Citizenship and Immigration Services in the Orlando district office. After several years of service with Federal Law Enforcement, Peggy decided to follow in her father’s footsteps and become a business owner. She is now running for Osceola County Commission- District 1
Our Second Segment is with Desmond Meade. He is a formerly homeless man whom through hard work and community service has become the current State Director for Faith in Florida Live Free Campaign, President of the Florida Rights Restoration Coalition (FRRC), Chair of the Florida Coalition on Black Civic Participation’s Black Men’s Roundtable, and a recent law school graduate.
As State Director of the Live Free Campaign, Desmond is currently engaged in addressing gun violence, mass incarceration, and felon disfranchisement.
As President of the FRRC, Desmond is presently leading efforts to restore the civil rights of almost 2 million Floridians, and empower local communities to reshape state, and national policies by being civically engaged.
