1 min read

Today, October 11th 2021, Indigenous Peoples’ Day is being celebrated across the United States. In observance of this important occasion, Florida Democratic Party Chair Manny Diaz issued the following statements.

“Indigenous Peoples’ Day grants us an opportunity to elevate and celebrate the crucial contributions and rich heritage of America’s Native communities. At the Florida Democratic Party we honor every one of our nation’s 574 Federally Recognized Tribes, and especially the two based in our own state, the Seminole and Miccosukee Tribes. 

“Although we can never forget the brutality, displacement and injustices visited upon our country’s Native Communities, let us seize this opportunity to reflect upon and show our appreciation for the great heritage and countless contributions of Indigenous Americans to life in our country, and to recommit ourselves to the work of ensuring a future that is more just, inclusive and equitable for the original inhabitants of the land we all now call home.”

Florida Democrats believe in effective and efficient government that prioritizes quality education, affordable health care, and an economy in which anyone who works hard can succeed.

Most importantly, we believe that we are stronger together. We believe the fundamental American promise — that you can go as far as your own hard work will take you — should shine brightest in Florida.

That is why we champion the middle class and cherish the principle that all Floridians should have the opportunity to work hard and succeed. That is why we will never stop fighting for better public schools, because education is the surest path to a better life for millions.

From standing for affordable health care and better schools to fighting for civil rights and access to the ballot box, Florida Democrats are leading every day to move our state forward.
