We support the Florida College Democrats and Dream Defenders in their "Stand for Freedom" walkout scheduled noon on Thursday, Feb. 23, at Florida college campuses.
Like the students, we believe Gov. Ron DeSantis is using our tax dollars to compromise the state's higher education system's academic integrity in the service of his ideological vision. By manipulating Florida’s education system, DeSantis is indoctrinating the youth he’s claiming to protect.
We protest DeSantis' policies targeting LGBTQ+ and people of color, and we urge his administration to restore diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives in colleges and universities.
And please join us in signing the "Stand for Freedom" pledge.
