Vote NO on Amendments 6 & 8

Florida faces many important decisions in the upcoming election- but there are some really important items that will be on your ballot you may have not heard about. 

This year there will be 11 proposed constitutional amendments on the ballot- all of which were put there by the Florida legislature (*que the alarm bells*). Two of those amendments- 6 & 8- have real consequences for Florida's LGBT community. That's why Equality Florida is saying vote NO on Amendments 6 & 8 this November.
