“In his desperate quest to win a GOP Presidential nomination, Ron DeSantis has waged war on freedom in Florida and made clear that he intends to advance his assaults on civil liberties from Coast to Coast. And in doing so, he has done damage to our state that will outlast his political career. Free states don’t criminalize healthcare, they invest in our collective wellbeing. Free states don’t use the power of government to censor free speech and punish dissent, they value discourse and celebrate diversity of thought. Florida may be the frontline, but we are all in the fight for real freedom.” Co-Founder & CEO, Equality Florida
Through lobbying, grassroots organizing, education, and coalition building, Equality Florida is changing Florida so that no one suffers harassment or discrimination on the basis of their sexual orientation or gender identity or expression.
