About the Event
The Florida Destruction of Education Act (HB 7 - "Individual Freedom") otherwise known as Governor DeSantis' anti-W.O.K.E Act is a legilsative priority this session.
This anti-trans+, anti-ethnic minority, anti-immigrant omnibus bill would reshape the Florida Education Equity Act (Statute 1000.05) to allow for the discrimination and oppression of gender diverse people, immigrant people, and people of a non-dominant ethnicity in K-20 education systems (students and employees). It will expand the ideology of discrimination in systems of power in Florida schools by indoctrinating children and staff to protect and teach systems of white supremacy and anti-transgender hate and exclusion.
We need your help to protect trans+, immigrant, and ethnic minority youth against this all out attack on their right to safe and equitable education in Florida public schools. Join Florida Coalition for Transgender Liberation and our allies at the Florida Capitol to rally and tell legislators to VOTE NO on HB 7/SB 148.
