School Safety Zone Does Not Infringe on First Amendment Rights

All abolitionists who are doing ministry work in the state of Florida need to be aware that some school officials are not aware that the 500 foot school safety zone (Statute 810.0975) does not infringe on citizens' First Amendment rights.

The end of Section (2)(c) of Florida Statute 810.0975 reads as follows: "Nothing in this section shall be construed to abridge or infringe upon the right of any person to peaceably assemble and protest."  

This sentence confirms that the abolitionist who is carrying out his/her ministry work in front of the public schools on the public sidewalk is well within his/her First Amendment right to peaceably assemble and "protest."  The abolitionist is (by definition) conducting "official business" inside the 500 foot safety zone.

For those abolitionists in the state of Florida who are doing ministry work in front of the public schools, please follow this link to the official School Safety Zone Statute 810.0975 and print off several copies of it to always have on hand to offer to the school officials and school officers who have wrongfully told you to move outside of the school safety zone or who have wrongfully told you to move across the street, etc.
