Demand Ron DeSantis Stop the Combating Violence,
Disorder & Looting & Law Enforcement Protection Act

Governor Ron DeSantis is trying to enact a law that will criminalize protestors for peacefully assembling, and protect police officers from harm. Sign this petition to demand Gov. Ron DeSantis stop the Combating Violence, Disorder, and Looting and Law Enforcement Protection Act.

The deaths of Jamee Johnson, George Floyd and Breonna Taylor have prompted Floridians to call for the end of police brutality and demand police accountability. However, instead of addressing community concerns, the Governor has turned a blind eye to the pain of Black and Brown communities and chosen to protect police officers.

Peaceful protesting is a right written into our Constitution, and we can’t continue to sit back and watch as politicians create laws that suppress our voices, our lives and our rights. Sign the petition to demand Gov. Ron DeSantis STOP THE ACT.

Volunteer in Georgia for the Senate Runoff Elections!

*Now that the dust has settled on the Presidential election, we must shift our focus to the two extremely important Senate race run-offs in Georgia on January 5th. 

These two Senate seats could make all the difference in a successful Biden-Harris agenda over the next four years. 

We all know that controlling the Senate will allow Democrats to appoint Supreme Court and Federal Judges, improve our healthcare, pass Covid support and so much more. It’s urgent that we make our best effort to take the Senate away from Mitch McConnell. 

We also know that many of you are looking for best ways to assist our neighbors in Georgia to secure these two seats. Here are two options:Please share this Mobilize link provided by Georgia Democrats’ Executive Director Scott Hogan to those out of state who may wish to volunteer.And if you can, please give.
