In the next 19 days we have a once-in-a-decade opportunity to reclaim our democracy and advance equal rights in Florida.

A "YES" vote on Constitutional Amendments 5 & 6 will ensure political districts are NO LONGER drawn to favor a particular party or candidate.

Why does Equality depend on Fair Districts?

We are winning the battle of public opinion - most Floridians are now on our side when it comes to adoption, anti-discrimination laws and legal protections for our LGBT families. But popular support hasn't translated into statewide victories because the elections are rigged to keep one party in power.

Why is Tallahassee so out of touch?

Our state is notorious for having some of the most outrageously drawn districts in the country- all to give the party in power a huge and completely unfair advantage.

Florida has more registered Democrats than Republicans and statewide races are often decided by narrow margins. Yet our state legislature does not reflect that balance. Instead it is dominated by extremists hostile to any laws that support equality.

This remedy is long overdue and on Election Day we have a chance to end this election dirty trick. It's a chance that only comes around once every 10 years so this election is vital.

Vote YES on constitutional amendments, 5 and 6, and ensure that state and federal districts are drawn fairly and logically. Fair elections will bring balance to Tallahassee and give our work for full equality a fighting chance.

Fair districts are the key to passing every piece of legislation we care about.
