Organizers behind Vision 2020 have set for themselves a bold goal: 100 percent turnout of eligible women voters in the November 2020 national election.

Launched after a meeting last month at Drexel University that sought "to bring about political parity for women," a group of women from Southwest Florida helped shape the project, and will bring a Vision 2020 National Congress to Florida next year. The effort is making a push in Florida through local organizations including the League of Women Voters and the Southwest Florida Community Foundation.
