Social Justice for All
Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, Dana Martin, and George Floyd are some of many people who were victims of social injustice. Right outside our district, the Ocoee Massacre took place in 1920, but it took 100 years before the whole story was told and fully acknowledged in 2020. Social justice means righting the wrongs of the past and giving marginalized members of our community a voice where they didn’t have one before. It also means protecting the rights of all people, regardless of their race, identity, or orientation.
Focused on giving a voice to marginalized communities across the state, Florida Rising is an organization dedicated to advocating for the rights of minorities, women, and the homeless. We are proud to partner with Florida Rising in their fight to secure racial justice in our state’s political system, and believe in their mission of driving change through the power of people working together toward common goals.
“We build independent political power that centers historically marginalized communities so everyday Floridians shape the future.”
