Tampa Bay for Bernie is raising funds to help our District Delegates get to the DNC! They will represent our voice at the convention and it's expensive to get there, as is the lodging for the hotel designated for Florida's Delegates. For a list of Tampa Bay's delegates.

Update for Demonstrators: We were going to charter a bus for Delegates and Demonstrators and have the bus at the hotel for Delegates to get to and from the convention center, but we learned the hotel is providing that, so it became cost prohibitive (we would be paying for a bus to sit for 4 days). However if we raise enough to cover our delegates, then we hope to offer a stipend to help Demonstrators get to Philly. There are a few options:
- possible 17 passenger van
- greyhouse is around $186 round trip
- If enough people want to go via greyhound we can get a group rate
- amtrak is around $320 round trip
- flights are $300+
Free lodging options are starting to become available on BernieBnB.com
