This year has been a game changer. Plain and Simple.
We have had historic breakthroughs with the election of Florida’s first out legislators, Joe Saunders and David Richardson, to the Florida House of Representatives. The number of straight allies standing with us to end discrimination has never been greater and we’ve passed 12 new domestic partnership, anti-discrimination, and safe schools policies in cities and counties across Florida in 2012.
From Pensacola to Key West - we are winning.
In the last year alone, we increased by 50% the number of Floridians with access to domestic partnership protections through registries. Because of our work, over 60% of Florida students are attending schools with anti-bullying protections that specifically include sexual orientation and gender identity protections.
We can’t slow down now. We are heading into what could be our biggest year yet, with momentum on our side and a seat at the table, we can take great strides in our fight against LGBT discrimination in Florida in 2013.
As a special thanks for your gift, you will receive a “Support Equality” t-shirt to wear proudly in the new year.
Since 1997, we have dramatically changed the face of Florida. But what we have accomplished in the last 15 years is nothing compared to what we can do, together, in the next 5 years.
Your support is behind everything Equality Florida accomplishes.
